ENP @ 2013 SFN

As we announced in our last issue, the ENP will be at the 2013 Neuroscience in San Diego, California, from Saturday November 9th to Wednesday November 13th, in the Exhibit Hall, Booth 3903. Along with Inserm, the Société des Neurosciences and Aviesan ITMO Neurosciences, the ENP will represent French Neuroscience « from Education to Research ».
Several ENP students and researchers who will attend the conference have generously agreed to spend some time at the booth and greet future potential students, right on time for the opening of the 2013 Graduate Program ENP Call.

The ENP wish to thank for their precious help : Boris Zalc, Alain Chédotal, Cendra Agulhon, Claire Wyart, Boris Gutkin, Jean-Léon Thomas, Fekrije Selimi, Marie-Claude Potier. And graduate students and postdocs : Sabah Mozafari, Declan Lyons, Takafumi Arakaki, Jaime Fuentealba, Diana Sakae, Sven Collette, Alfredo Cabrera Socorro, Thomas Auer.

Have a look at the SFN Preliminary Program.


« The ENP is a PhD program which provides great opportunity for international students who are interested in neuroscience. I was enrolled in 2008 as the first Chinese student. During the five years, my gratitude goes first to ENP program. It has provided me not only the fellowship and the scientific resources, but also great life support. (…) I appreciate ENP for having been providing always great scientific and social opportunities that would be important for our future career.  Moreover, the ENP is like a big family and always encourages scientific and social events that weekly or monthly organized by ENP students. This is a very important feature that makes ENP different than the other foundation programs. I hope ENP will attract more and more elite students and strongly promote the scientific exploration in neuroscience field. »

The ENP communication team have created new posters for the ENP, its Graduate Program and the Invited Scientists Program. Whenever possible, we would like all teams to pin them on their labs’ walls !
