The student came from diverse cultures from Nepal to Australia and backgrounds ranging from molecular scientist to start-up entrepreneur. At the end of the programme, based on the tools and techniques studied, their projects were presented.
A year in the making, the programme was designed with an international panel of experts delivering significant modules, including informal approach that helped reduce gaps in the study of the brain and helped foster better understanding of diverse cultures.
As a knowledge generator, the inaugural IBRO School is part of the greater plan to be inventive in developing new technologies in Malaysia.
