Deadline for Applications: 15 April 2013. The fourth EADV/ESDR Summer Research Workshop on “Mouse models in skin research” is scheduled to take place Monday 22 July – Friday 26 July 2013 in Cologne, Germany. This is an exciting joint venture between the ESDR and EADV to support research and education across European dermatology.
The course is primarily aimed at dermatological residents/trainees who have an interest in research but who have not yet undertaken a substantial block of research. This years’ course has an emphasis on mouse models, molecular biology and cloning but covers many general laboratory techniques. The programme has been designed to offer real “hands-on” experience of techniques complemented by seminars explaining the theoretical basis about specific techniques, as well as state of the art lectures. The course also includes either a journal club or research presentations held by the participants.
The course is free of charge and includes educational material, certificate of attendance, free accommodation, catering and a social event (dinner).
If interested, please apply as soon as possible. Likewise, we encourage you to circulate this information to fellow residents/trainees in your department (http://www.eadv.org/fostering-courses/current-residents-courses/2013-eadvesdr-summer-course/)
In applying, you are asked to write a paragraph indicating why you wish to attend, provide a short CV, a letter of recommendation written by the chair of department and a title for a research or journal club presentation. As the number of places is limited to 25, participants will be selected primarily on the basis of their application but we will also aim to provide a balanced distribution across different regions.
The deadline for receipt of applications is 15 April 2013 and we aim to let you know as soon as possible whether your application has been successful.
