Advanced Courses in Life Sciences

About us

Transmitting Science started in 2012 to manage specialized courses and workshops we were already organizing within our own Partnerships. Up to date, we have already run 100 advanced courses in different topics related to Life Sciences.
All the courses are self-financed with participant’s fees and we strive to keep the fees to the minimum necessary for running them.

Our mission

Sharing knowledge between scientists is our objective. New methodologies need to be learned, and new ideas must be shared and debated in order to advance scientific knowledge.

Our courses cover a wide range of research methods and are aimed at postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and established academics from all over the world.

All our instructors are leading experts in their fields. We draw on an international range of experienced instructors.

Where are we located?

Transmitting Science is based in Barcelona, Spain and 90 % of our courses and workshops are held in Barcelona province.
However, a few courses are held in Argentina and Canada together with our collaborators there.

We offer both introductory and advanced courses on different subjects. Courses and workshops are highly dynamic, always including practical sessions and allowing time for questions and interaction.

Interchange of ideas and debate occurs in our courses and workshops but also tends to carry on informally during shared lunches, coffees, and even over drinks after class!
