The 3rd Mediterranean Neuroscience Conference was successful in many ways!
The INF sponsored the meeting (3000$) giving five grants to two Moroccan, two Tunisian and one Egyptian student and young scientist. Only 2 students from Morocco and Egypt were able to attend the conference. They were specialized in clock genes and chronic mild stress respectively. Therefore, two poster prices have been offered by the INF to support young scientists. They have been granted to two Egyptian PhD students and young researcher specialized in morphological plasticity and ovariectomy-induced depression.
The upcoming Mediterranean Conference (the 4th) is thus scheduled on 2012 in Istanbul, Turkey and will be organized by Yasin Temel.
