About the Program
The Latin American Training Program (LATP) is a comprehensive, year-long online training program. It provides webinars, recorded content, and online discussions on cutting edge science and professional development to young investigators from Latin America and the Caribbean.
Now in its sixth year, the LATP is supported by The Grass Foundation, The Latin American Regional Committee of the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO), US/Canada Regional Committee (US/CRC) of IBRO, and the selected hosted institutions.
At this time, the 2020 LATP live course is still planned to take place November 2–20, 2020 in Montevideo, Uruguay. SfN and the host institution/organizers of the live course are continuously monitoring the development of the COVID-19 outbreak worldwide, and especially within the Latin American region, to decide whether it is safe to hold the course. Applicants will be promptly notified should there be a needed change in the program.
