Neurepiomics, first summer school in neuroepidemiology in FranceCOTE summer school 2015 "Ecology and society: biodiversity and global change" -
An extensive training program on advanced brain imaging techniques and familiarization with "omics" tools and their applications in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging was proposed during the Neurepiomics summer school. Various subjects were dealt with, from data acquisition to future needs specific to each topic. The latter, which was addressed through various forms of teaching, enabled adaptation to the knowledge of each participant, and thus to address the needs of as many as possible. Launched by Prof. Stéphanie Debette and Prof. Christophe Tzourio of the University of Bordeaux, Neurepiomics was organized in close collaboration with Prof. Sudha Seshadri of Boston University. Following the partnership established with the latter, the next summer school of this type will take place in 2016 in Boston, with the assistance of two speakers from Harvard.
