Complex and amazing brain entitles human being to be the wisest creature on earth. In the 21st century, rapid developments of human civilization and technology, especially biomedicine, not only make us healthier and longevous, but also helps us pay more attention to functions and health of our mind. After more than 10 years of growth, Bio-X Institutes became one of the best centers of researches and practices of mental health under the leadership of Academician Lin He. Ever since 2013 when our Institutes first launched the English course called Brain Facts, we have invited a series of world leading scientists two years in a row to give students lessons. In 2015, we successfully held 2015 SJTU-KCL Brain Facts International Summer School (Shanghai). This is the first time that professors and researchers of Shanghai Jiao Tong University and King's College London as well as other top universities and institutions worldwide join hands together to participate in an International Summer School. This year, our Institutes will continually hold the 2016 SJTU-KCL Brain Facts International Summer School (Shanghai). We warmly welcome undergraduates, postgraduates and research fellows who are interested in this field all come and join this grand gathering.
2016 SJTU-KCL Brain Facts International Summer School (Shanghai) will be taught by the leading scientists worldwide, some of which are masters in perspective fields. By organizing courses, lectures, seminars, workshop, field trips and study tours, summer school will dig in the mystery of brain and mental health, one of the most attractive issues for the modern humankind. By focusing on the advances of neuroscience and the facts of the brain, the summer school intends to trigger the curiosity of the students on the mystery of brain, train students to investigate, think, discuss and present their own opinions on the important scientific issues. Students or postdoctoral fellows who are interested in doing cutting age experiments in the labs are also welcomed, because Course B will help enhance your practice skills and link theory with practice. Besides, activities and sightseeing will be arranged to facilitate the participants to immerse to English and Chinese culture and life.
2016 SJTU-KCL Brain Facts International Summer School provides a valuable opportunity for the students to expand their horizon, comprehensive understanding of mental health and neuroscience. All activities held during this summer school aim at providing a good platform for the participants to get a well-known of the current trends of the subjects and make good communication between students home and abroad, promoting students’ knowledge of brain and neuroscience and a deep understanding of the culture of Shanghai. This activity is doomed to boost talent development and internationalization of teaching, thus helping achieve our goal of creative talent cultivation reform.
