STREAMLINE Summer School “Identification of key genes and novel drug targets for neurodevelopmental disorders”

With great pleasure we want to announce Summer school “Identification of key genes and novel drug targets for neurodevelopmental disorders” as part of the STREAMLINE project. Summer school will be held on June 5-7, 2024, at the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH), Thessaloniki, Greece and will be co-organized by CERTH and Maastricht University.

Why STREAMLINE Summer school?

Summer school will offer a comprehensive guide to current state-of-the-art methodologies for identification of key genes and novel drug targets for neurodevelopmental disorders. By face-to-face lectures, workshops and hands-on training, this Summer school will guide you through the methods of GWAS and imaging genetics, epigenetics and methylation analysis, microRNA analysis, methods and algorithms for in silico screening, pathway modelling, drug-related databases, PRS calculation algorithms and cell-based assays for experimental validation of selected compounds. It will provide knowledge and understanding of current approaches and technologies to support future research and international collaborations.

Who should attend this Summer school? PhD students from the Western Balkan region with interests in computational analysis, drug screening and cell-based assays for drug screening.

Costs: travel (train/bus tickets), accommodation and subsistence costs will be covered by the STREAMLINE project.

Language: English
