Max Planck Neuroscientists Bring Expertise to Latin American Training Program

Two Max Planck neuroscientists recently participated in the Society for Neuroscience’s (SfN) Latin American Training Program (LATP) – a unique educational opportunity for Latin American and Caribbean students to learn from some of the best and brightest neuroscientists across the globe. Dr. James Schummers, a research group leader at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) in Jupiter, and Dr. Marcel Oberlaender, a visiting scientist from Germany’s Max Planck Society, participated in the 2015 program. LATP has become a key training and recruitment tool in cultivating the next generation of neuroscientists. “These are the kinds of interactions that put MPFI on the map in Latin America,” said Dr. Schummers. “Training courses like this one focus on these highly motived young people and look for opportunities where we can build…
