The Summer School Schmid Training Course "Established and Emerging Model Organisms for Marine Science" will take place at the Stazione Zoologica Dohrn Napoli (SZN) from the 24th of May to the 4th of June, 2021. Please have a look to the Flyer Summer School.
The Summer School is dedicated to 20 Master students and 1st year PhD students who will learn about several marine organisms used in biological research, and will include lessons (interactive talks) and bench experiments to give the possibility to learn many aspects of the life cycle, embryology, anatomy, evolution, regeneration, genetics, neuroscience thanks to the presence of world experts of the field.
Interested candidates should send the CV and a motivation letter to the Organizers: Salvatore D’Aniello <This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Summer School is funded by the Erasmus+ DigitalMarine project (2018-2021)


Innovative and interdisciplinary teaching and research training method

The DigitalMarine project is the fruit of a strategic partnership funded by the European Union Erasmus+ programme and consists of an online distance-learning platform focusing on marine model organisms in life sciences. Master's students of six European Universities and Marine Research Institutions* are provided with video lectures, interviews with researchers, virtual labs and scientific literature to provide a more autonomous and differentiated learning experience. This international research training constitutes of a hybrid teaching combining self-learning and practical lab work. DigitalMarine aims to enrich the annual practical marine biology Schmid Training Course in Roscoff (France) using a broad range of organisms: acoels, annelids, brown algae, cephalochordates, cnidarians, crustaceans, echinoderms, placozoans, poriferans, sharks, urochordates. In 2021 it has been held at the Stazione Zoologica Dohrn in Naples (Italy), one of the partner Institutions.For more information visit: https://digital-marine.sorbonne-universite.fr/index.php/digitalmarine
