    4th HKU-Pasteur Cell Biology Course

    Course Date: 15 Apr 2012

    for Research Postgraduate Students (MPhil and PhD)

    Programme (last update: 02/04/2012)

    DATE:

    15 - 27 April 2012

    TOPIC:

    CELL DIVISION & CANCER BIOLOGY

    Cancer will continue to be a dominant challenge to the community as a cause of morbidity and mortality. This situation will be no longer restricted to Western countries in the near future, as the improvement of health conditions in resource-poor countries will result in an increasing incidence of cancer in these regions. Furthermore, there is a prevalence of certain cancers, such as hepatocellular and nasopharyngeal carcinomas in Hong Kong and China, both of which are related to viral infections.

    The practical sessions will revolve on two topics: cytokinesis and spindle assembly and chromosome dynamics organized by Dr Arnaud ECHARD (Institut Pasteur, Dambournet et al., Nat Cell Biol 2011) and Dr Chuanhai FU ( the University of Hong Kong, Fu et al, Dev Cell 2009) respectively. Both sessions will use cutting-edge approaches that will introduce students to dynamic live imaging.
