In order to improve the internationalized graduate programs, encourage innovative thinking of the graduate students, and train high-quality personnel with global vision, the Academy of Medical Sciences of Zhengzhou University (AMS-ZZU), supported by Graduate School, is to organize 2019 ZZU International Graduate Summer School: the Neuroscience Section. This section is held from July 8th to July 14th, 2019, at the 2nd floor Auditorium of the School of Basic medical Sciences. The excellent professors at home and abroad are invited; English is the working language. We try to present world-wide great theoretic progress and advanced techniques in neuroscience to current and potential graduates, and to some young staff as well. Moreover, we expect to intrigue the scientific enthusiasm, to induce the innovation, and to enhance the academic communication of all the attendance.
