The Latin American Training Program is a comprehensive, yearlong online program that provides a unique training opportunity for young investigators from across Latin America and the Caribbean
The fifth year of the Latin American Training Program provides webinars, recorded content, and online discussions which incorporate cutting edge science and professional development topics. Support for LATP is provided by The Grass Foundation, the Latin American Regional Committee of the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO), US/Canada Regional Committee (US/CRC) of IBRO, and the selected host institution.
Fifteen selected trainees from the program will also participate in a three-week course from August 26 – September 15, 2018 at the University of Valparaíso in Chile. Travel, lodging, and meals are covered as part of the fellowship. The course topic is, “From Molecules to Behavior: The Quest for New Treatments of Neuropathologies.” The course will bring together top faculty from across the region and the world to provide participants with high-quality lectures, lab exercises, and training on vital professional development topics.
