LabEx BRAINBordeaux Region Aquitaine Initiative for Neurosciences
Cluster of excellence


The LabEx BRAIN aims at promoting excellence of the research, transfer, training and international visibility of Bordeaux Neuroscience. Therefore, the LabEx BRAIN wishes to facilitate sabbatical stays (1-6 months) in its affiliated laboratories for oustanding-level senior scientists coming from foreign countries.

These visitors will bring their expertise to the Bordeaux Neuroscience community during their stay and act as our ambassadors when they return to their own countries.
