Final decision on the school format (on-site, on-line, or hybrid) will be announced in May.
In case of school on-site, due to the pandemic of COVID-19, participants from abroad may be requested with PCR check and stay in the air terminal hotel for 1-2 days upon arrival.
In 2018, Menno Witter and Cliff Kentros at Kavli Institute of Systems Neuroscience in the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Norway, and Tadashi Isa and Masahiko Takada at Kyoto University and Ken-ichiro Tsutsui at Tohoku University were awarded with INTPART project for Japan and Norway United in Brain, Educations and Therapeutics (JANUBET).
As a part of the activity in this project, we organize schools to the young researchers and students. The first school was held in Tohoku University on May 8-12 in 2019. The second school was held in Tromsø , Norway on August 11-18 in 2019.
The third school is currently planned on September 10-16, 2021 in Kyoto and Inuyama.
We will focus on teaching the primate neurobiology. This school will be co-sponsored by the International Partnerships for Excellent Education and Research (INTPART), Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Biology (WPI-ASHBi), Primate Research Institute (PRI) and Graduate Program for Medical Innovation (MIP) of Kyoto University.
