We are pleased to announce that we will be running a further school in Oxford in 2018 from 2nd – 7th September. We are still accepting applications for the sleep medicine track of the school, please see below for more information.

Hosted by the SCNi at the University of Oxford, the five day School will consist of a series of shared lectures and seminars as well as separate, subject-specific workshops. The aim of the summer school curriculum is to give attendees an understanding of their subject area, from fundamental research to applied science.

The Summer School is targeted at PhD/DPhil/MD students and other early career researchers. Keep an eye on this page for updates!
