The second edition of the ESRS Sleep Science School will focus on “Sleep and Aging”, with fundamental and translational perspectives, and will be held again at the Villa Clythia in the city of Frejus at the Mediterranean Sea (South France), from 29 September to 4 October 2019. ESRS board members Philippe Peigneux, Pierre-Herve Luppi, Lino Nobili and Tom de Boer will coordinate this 2nd edition.
The program will be highly proactive and aimed at a maximal involvement of participants. It will include in-depth lectures by international sleep experts on Sleep and Aging topics (both human and animal work), together with presentation and discussion of the participants’ own research, workshop interactive sessions aimed at writing research grants and proposals, and in-depth exchanges between early career and experienced researchers. Importantly, faculty members will be present during the entire week, participate in the group activities, and be available for theoretical and practical discussions with early career researchers.
Confirmed faculty members are international sleep experts Julie Carrier (CA), Debra Skene (UK), Tarja Stenberg (FI), Silke Ryan (IR), Lino Nobili (IT), Tom de Boer (NL), Pierre-Hervé Luppi (FR) and Philippe Peigneux (BE).
