The main objective of the APSN School (Macau 2018) is to provide introduction for the new technologies in neuroscience research, such as live cell imaging, cell Isolation, metabolomics, gene sequencing, protein isolation and quantification, and computer-assisted drug design, as well as train the junior researchers (PhD. Students or postdoctoral fellows, hereby known as participants) in neuroscience to have better experiences/hands-on work and ideas for their projects.
