SUMMER SCHOOL ON

STRESS

FROM HANS SELYE'S ORIGINAL CONCEPT
TO RECENT ADVANCES

AN INTERACTIVE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE

JULY 19 - 24, 2020
MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA

Organized By: FASEB Conferences

Host: FASEB Conferences and Hans Selye Foundation, Inc., Canada

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: Montreal is the second largest city in Canada (after Toronto). It is very internationally oriented, with excellent universities, museums, and cultural institutions. Montreal is also the birthplace of Stress: Hans Selye was the first scientist to identify “stress” as underpinning the nonspecific signs and symptoms of illness during his research work at McGill University in Montreal, followed by three decades of his investigations at the Université de Montréal (1945-1976). After his retirement from his Institute of Experimental Medicine and Surgery at the Université de Montréal, Hans Selye founded the International Institute of Stress that he managed and led until his death in 1985. The Institute is now managed by the Hans Selye Foundation, Inc. in Montreal.

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.
