JANUBET Symposium

Tools and the Study of Brain Systems: New Vistas!

September 20(Tue)-22 (Thu), 2022
Clock Tower Centennial Hall, Kyoto University, Kyoto 

You are warmly invited and welcome to our September symposium
‘Tools and the study of brain systems: New Vistas!'.

This is the final activity organized as part of an international collaboration between Tohoku University, Kyoto University, and NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The aim of this collaboration, funded by the Norwegian Research Council, was to promote scientific and educational exchange for young neuroscience trainees and to develop a lasting educational exchange for our students.

For our final symposium we have blended a series of presentations by excellent scientists with poster sessions by our junior scientists/students and other selected participants. Join us for this unique event in the unique settings offered by the host, Kyoto University.
