Hosting Extra-EU researchers
From April 2016 the Cavalieri Ottolenghi Foundation has been credited by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research to sign hosting agreements. This means that our Institute may host extra-EU researchers, not resident in the EU, to carry out research projects, to obtain VISA.

Torino - 10th International Meeting STEROIDS and NERVOUS SYSTEM

Since 2001, this meeting represented an important event for basic and clinical researchers working on this emerging scientific topic. We will address state-of-the-art approaches in the field of steroids and nervous system, including behavior, epigenetics, genomic and non-genomic actions, the vitamin D, neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders, and the interference among endocrine disruptors and steroid signaling.
