This year we are launching an interdisciplinary Summerschool Addiction that will take place from 22 – 26 August 2016 in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The goal of the course is to teach and train master students and PhD students in recent advances in different aspects of addiction, e.g. legal and cultural aspects, prevalence and risk factors, neurobiological mechanisms, relevant animal models, cognitive aspects of addiction, and treatment strategies and challenges in addiction care. Through lectures and workshops by experts from multiple disciplines in addiction research and treatment, this Summerschool will provide young scientists with the knowledge and skills to take a novel approach in addiction research and care.
More information regarding the course is available on the attached poster and through this website http://www.utrechtsummerschool.nl/courses/life-sciences/addiction.
