SUMMER SCHOOL ON

STRESS

FROM HANS SELYE'S ORIGINAL CONCEPT
TO RECENT ADVANCES

AN INTERACTIVE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE

JUNE 25 - 28, 2019
ST. PETERSBERG, RUSSIA

Organized By: Selye International Institute for Advanced Studies and IUPHAR GI Section

Host: Pavlov Institute of Physiology of the Russian Academy of Sciences – Director Prof. Ludmila Filaretova

Original Accreditation: University of California-Irvine, School of Medicine

Course Goals: better understanding the concept of biologic stress, its manifestations, mechanisms and its pharmacologic ramifications (e.g., the anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating actions of glucocorticoids and the possibility of drug-interventions in severe distress), and to learn new avoidance, management and coping strategies.

Venue: After six years of annual conferences in Europe and Japan, the 7th Summer School on Stress will be held in St. Petersburg, the former and still beautiful capital of Russia, the site of many museums and historic buildings, including the world-famous Hermitage museum and art gallery. The course directors thank Prof. Ludmila Filaretova, Director of Pavlov Institute of Physiology for hosting this renown and focused international conference on stress and stress-related diseases. The conference will be held at the famous Pavlov Institute of Physiology, in very center of St. Petersburg, not far from Hermitage.

International Core Faculty


All former PhD students of Hans Selye, the “father of biologic stress.” Therefore the school is very authentic, free of frequent distortions and over-implications of stress. It is comprehensive and interactive since it covers virtually all aspects of stress, based in part by oral or poster presentations of participants. The faculty consists of internationally known experts and investigators (e.g., basic scientists & clinicians) who made original discoveries in the field of stress research and stress-related diseases, as well as local and regional experts.
