On the training of future neuroscientists: insights from the Grass laboratory. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The understanding of nature is a continuous process that requires the transference of current knowledge to future generations. In this NeuroView, we address the critical issue of training of future scientists, an essential aspect of scientific progress. As an example of the impact training programs can have on shaping future scientists, we focus on the experience of the Grass Laboratory, which provides early career investigators the opportunity to embark on independent research experiences. This uniquely designed program has contributed enormously to fostering the development of neuroscientists in the past 60 years and has left a recognizable mark on 20(th) and 21(st) century neuroscience research.
