We are pleased to inform you that the SINS NATIONAL MEETING OF PHD STUDENTS IN NEUROSCIENCE will take place at the Centro Congressi Lingotto in Turin on September 14th, 2023, the same day as the Opening Ceremony of the SINS 2023 National Congress.

The Italian Neurosciences play an important role in the international scientific research scene both for basic studies and for the plethora of investigations focusing on the molecular underpinnings of Nervous System disorders. A significant contribution to the success of Neuroscience in the European context is certainly provided by the research of young Italian scientists who have achieved results of international relevance in the field of neuroscience.

The PhD Meeting will offer an overview of the New Perspectives of Italian Neuroscience research and PhD Students will be the leaders, presenting the results of their Projects. It will be a day to promote interactions and exchange of ideas that will offer an invaluable opportunity of discussion between young people involved in Neuroscience.

The President-Elect of the SINS, Prof. Monica DiLuca, will give a lecture.

The event is fully organized by the newly selected Youth Committee of the SINS, with the support of the current SINS President Prof. Alessandro Vercelli and a local committee formed by Prof. Marina Boido, Silvia De Marchis and Davide Marnetto.

For any inquiry regarding the PhD meeting, please contact the Youth Committee of the SINS by email at comitatogiovani@sins.it
