CAJAL course on Neuroepigenetics: writing, reading and erasing the epigenome

Prize: Fellow/scholarship › Other fellow/scholarship


The course was a theoretical and practical training on the recently emerged field of neuroepigenetics. It provided an overview of the current concepts and knowledge on the nature and functions of the epigenome in the nervous system, its modes of regulation and its link to brain health and disease. It combined lectures and hands-on projects to learn about state-of-the-art approaches and methodologies to study how the epigenome is established and modulated by behaviour in rodents and invertebrates, what machinery is involved and what is its causal relationship to functions. It included methods in behaviour, epigenetics, (epi)genome editing, molecular and cell biology, -omics and bioinformatics.


I received a stipend covering the course fees including accommodation, food and consumables for the 3 weeks in Bordeaux, France.
