    Cell Biology is at the heart of all aspects of biological science from genomics to infectious disease and therefore strengthening this area of research in China and the Asia region will have a broad impact.

    The 2nd HKU-PASTEUR CELL BIOLOGY COURSE will provide an overview of fundamental aspects of cellular organization with special attention to molecular mechanisms of infection and cell division.

    The course will discuss regulation of cellular functions through several examples: cell polarization, vesicular transport and trafficking, cytoskeletal dynamics, cell cycle, mitosis, cellular transformation and invasion.

    Practical sessions will focus on mechanisms of pathogens and invasion, and on cell division using advanced imaging techniques. Journal Clubs will train participants to critically analyze scientific papers, to confront ideas and experimental evidence, and improve their oral presentation skills.

    For postgraduate students, postdoctoral fellows and young investigators. Preference will be given to MPhil and PhD candidates.

    Candidates are invited to download course and travel grant application forms.

    There are no registration fees.

    Travel fellowships (up to 5) will be awarded to the best non Hong Kong residents.
    Accommodation (on sharing twin basis) and food (canteen-style) will be provided.

    Please return all completed forms, including two letters of recommendation to hku-pasteur@hku.hk
