TARGEAR is organizing a Summer School on Auditory Neuroscience, to be held on July 6-8, 2016, at the School of Medicine of the Universidad Autónoma, in Madrid.
The school aims to provide a forum to learn state-of-the-art procedures to study hearing disorders. Students will have the opportunity to learn from experts a series of techniques, including, but not limited to: electrophysiology recording, developing and adult inner ear sample preparation for histology and gene expression analysis. In addition, the course will teach the participants the main indications of surgical and non-surgical devices for the current treatment of hearing loss. This practical course is designed to provide the participants with general knowledge to carry experimental work in the inner ear of lab animals. Limited seats are available to ensure a more personalized experience.
Registration is open to anyone with an interest in Hearing Research, including scientists, clinicians, engineers, audiologists, science students, etc.
More details and the School´s preliminary program, as well as on line registration, are available at the following link: http://congresos.fuam.es/fuamcongresos/auditory-neuroscience-summer-school-2016/home.
The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on the Auditory System will be held this summer from July 10-15, 2016 at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. Gordon conferences offer a great opportunity for the exchange of scientific ideas in a smaller and more intimate setting. The 5th biannual Auditory GRC is entitled The Plastic and Dynamic Auditory System to reflect the broad range of topics covering all levels of the system. Conference details and list of invited speakers can be found on the conference website: https://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?id=13847
The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on the Auditory System on July 9-10, 2016 is a special meeting that precedes the GRC. The GRS is moderated by and exclusively composed of presentations by postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. The only exceptions will be a keynote lecture by Jason Sanchez (Northwestern) and a presentation/Q&A session on NIH/NIDCD grants and training opportunities. Travel and meeting support (amounts to be determined) will be provided to a select number of participants. Seminar details can be found on the seminar website: https://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?id=14038
Salus Summer Workshop Series 2016
Salus University offers two four-day workshops every summer on our Elkins Park, PA campus. Our goal is to provide an update on advanced and current science in the specific topic of study for each workshop, review clinical implications, and provide hands-on training using the tools and techniques discussed in order to improve clinical practice. Salus workshops are designed to have an immediate impact on the participants’ clinical service delivery and are taught by faculty who are distinguished by their expertise in their areas.
Salus Summer Workshop Series 2016:
July 16-19: Hearing Conservation in Industry and Music: Practical Information for Practicing Audiologists Tom Thunder, AuD; Michael Santucci, AuD.
July 21-24: Auditory Processing Disorders: Science to Practice Jay Hall, PhD; Robert Harrison, PhD; Martin Pienkowski, PhD.
Enrollment is limited to enhance each student’s learning experience.
