EURON workshop: Psychopharmacology: from laboratory to clinic

October 7-11, 2017
University of Crete, Greece

This year EURON will organize the EURON workshop “Psychopharmacology: from laboratory to clinic”

In this EURON course different topics in Psychopharmacology will be presented. The topics for this event are Neurodegeneration, Neurodevelopment, Psychosis, Addiction and Experimental Medicine, and Drug Development and Neurohealth. The students will be introduced into the latest developments in these fields and will get a better understanding of how drugs work in the brain and drugs can be developed for treatment in various brain diseases.

Participants can attend presentations as well as engage in different interactive workshops and debates. Participants also have the opportunity to present their own research in poster and elevator pitch sessions. We encourage active participation and active engagement in discussions with the experts in the field coming from academia and industry. Next to the scientific programme there will also be a social programme.
