Neuroscience School of Advanced Studies: The Challenge Workshops


In contemporary neuroscience, past models offer limited guidance, emphasizing the need for critical thinking and challenging established norms. The Challenge Workshops aim to deconstruct, reflect upon, and reconstruct participants’ experiences, unlocking their greatest potential for both professional and personal breakthroughs. In an intimate setting with a maximum of 20 colleagues, peer learning is actively cultivated at Chetzeron, fostering a robust global network that provides enduring support, advice, and personal connections.

Led by a Workshop Director and a select faculty, chosen for their leadership in diverse fields, the workshops ensure a unique convergence of experienced investigators. This setting, coupled with a social context, fosters a strong sense of common purpose among participants, leading to high-level conversations and insights not easily achieved in regular meetings.

Whether you’re an established neuroscientist, clinician at a career turning point, or contemplating entrepreneurial ventures, these workshops offer a platform for exchanging experiences with a select global group. Embrace the challenge, and you’ll leave with actionable plans to address complex responsibilities, renewed energy, and a readiness to make a meaningful impact.

The Challenge

Mitochondrial Function in Brain Health, Disease, and Resilience

May 31 – June 4, 2024

Co-Directed by Ana Andreazza, a luminary and also the Director of MITO2i, this workshop promises an unparalleled exploration into the intricate connections between mitochondrial function and psychiatric and neurological diseases. Limited to an intimate group of 20 participants, this immersive experience at Chetzeron at 2112 mt blends morning sessions, open discussions, and outdoor activities to stimulate peer learning and foster a robust global network of colleagues. Join us on this transformative journey, delving into mitochondrial biology and shaping the future of brain health. Applications are open for established scientists and scholars. Secure your spot for an opportunity to pioneer breakthroughs in neuroscience
