Workshop on Modern Neurochemical Techniques to Understand Brain Functions

This workshop will provide the participants with hands-on experience with the methods used to understand the neurochemical basis of brain functioning.

A maximum of 20 participants will be selected for each workshop. Students and junior faculty working in the area of Neurochemistry are encouraged to apply. The selected Indian participants will receive travel allowance limited to 2 nd class return train fare and local hospitality depending on the availability of grants.


Simultaneously at NIMHANS and National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bangalore.
