Latin American Training Program

Latin American Training Program

2017 Call for Applications Opens October 31

The Latin American Training Program (LATP) supports the professional and scientific development of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are citizens or permanent residents of a Latin American or Caribbean country.

All eligible applicants will be invited to become LTP Associates and will gain access to an online community of peers and faculty in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as webinars, live chat opportunities, and a library of educational resources.

Fifteen trainees will also be selected to participate in a three-week course at the Universidad de Valle, Colombia form March 20 to April 9, 2017.

The course “Signal processing : from single molecules to brain circuits”- will bring together top faculty from across the region and the world to provide participants with high- quality lectures, lab exercises, and training on vital professional development topics.

Purposes of the Course

The Course will have three intertwined purposes. The first purpose is descriptive: to analyze the physical and chemical nature of elementary neuronal signals, as well as of the combination of such signals in increasingly complex structures. A second purpose is methodological: to demonstrate up-to-date techniques allowing the study of neuronal signaling so that Fellows will be able to understand the relevant literature and to start developing projects when returning to their home laboratory. A third purpose is conceptual: to understand how signals are elaborated, propagated and integrated in the nervous system, and how these processes shape animal behavior. These purposes will be pursued in the study of select cases, where each example will be examined rather thoroughly, without aiming at an exhaustive survey of the many forms of neuronal signaling.
