[Call for Application] Measles and Rubella Elimination workshop in Ho Chi Minh City

Applications are open for the annual International Workshop in Ho Chi Minh City co-organized by HKU-Pasteur Research Pole, Institut Pasteur in Ho Chi Minh City and Institut Pasteur du Laos:

MEASLES & RUBELLA ELIMINATION
Options for Public Health Interventions
 
 
Date: December 2-5, 2019
Venue: Pasteur Institute Ho Chi Minh City Training Center, Vietnam 
Deadline for applications: 23 SEPTEMBER, 2019 
 

The international workshop on “Measles and Rubella Elimination: Options for Public Health Interventions” course will discuss the current situation of the eradication program, the efforts of the health sector towards the elimination of measles and rubella and the implementation of the proposed Operational Targets set by WHO for 2020.

The proposed workshop is specifically designed for health personnel, mainly but not exclusively from countries in South East Asia, including medical and health professionals, policy makers, disease researchers interested in expanding their critical understanding of the complex issues to combat measles and rubella in the context of the global WHO strategy towards its elimination as a public health threat.

Faculty: Yan Zhang (PR China); Odile Launay (France); Roberto Bruzzone (Hong Kong); Tommy Lam (Hong Kong); Anthony Black (Lao PDR); Philippe Cavailler (Lao PDR); B. Khamphaphongphane (Lao PDR); Claude Muller (Luxembourg); Kaushik Banerjee (Switzerland); Mick N Mulders (Switzerland); Hoang Quoc Cuong (Vietnam); Nguyen Thi Na (Vietnam); Nguyen Trong Toan (Vietnam); Phan Trong Lan (Vietnam).

Croucher Summer Course in Advanced Imaging: Deep Learning in Imaging and Cell Biology

The 3rd Croucher Summer Course in Advanced Imaging is going to end soon, and once again we spent a vibrant and wonderful week with all participants. 
 
With a focus on the application of leading deep learning framework for microscopy image restoration, the Content Aware Image Restoration (CARE), to various biological image restoration tasks, this Croucher course held by HKU-Pasteur welcomed a batch of students coming from all over the world. They could enjoy learning about the power of deep learning in microscopy through open source tools such as Fiji, KNIME and Jupyter notebooks that make the advanced technologies accessible to anyone during a whole week with a world class faculty.
 
Besides the in-depth practical experience with CARE, the participants acquired knowledge alternative computational approaches to super-resolution microscopy and about handling of big microscopy image datasets as well as the impact of computational techniques on biological imaging. 
 
We really had a great time working with you all on this course, and we hope to see you soon in Hong Kong!
 
In the meantime, don't forget to follow our activities on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and to subscribe to our Newsletter

[NEW DEADLINE] 9th HKU-Pasteur Cell Biology Course on Proteomics

We are extending the deadline for application for the 9th HKU-Pasteur Cell Biology Course, focusing this year on Proteomics: 

NEW DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: 26 August, 2019 

 Application form / Tips for Application 

Date: October 27 - November 2, 2019
Venue: HKU-Pasteur Research Pole
 

With the advent of more sophisticated technology and instrumentation in mass spectrometry, a strong interest has emerged to assess and interrogate biology at the level of protein networks, along with the more conventional genomic and transcriptomic approaches. Both systems-wide as well as targeted proteomic strategies have proved critical for generating hypotheses in various cellular perturbations. 

The 9th HKU-Pasteur Cell Biology Course will focus on proteomics based approaches to probe the cell biology underlying human diseases. The lectures and workshops will present an advanced overview of how the integration of conventional “omics“ approaches with that of proteomic analyses leads to deeper understanding of biological processes and signaling pathways.

Course directors: Roberto BRUZZONE (Hong Kong); Philippe CHAVRIER (France); Sumana SANYAL (Hong Kong); George TSAO (Hong Kong); Chiara ZURZOLO (France)
 
Faculty: Oreste ACUTO (United Kingdom); Roberto BRUZZONE (Hong Kong); Francis IMPENS (Belgium); Benedikt KESSLER (United Kingdom); Daniel KOLARICH (Australia); Yun LAN (Hong Kong); Fan LIU (Germany); Liliana RADOSHEVICH (USA); Sumana SANYAL (Hong Kong); Florian SCHMIDT (Germany); Rakesh SHARMA (Hong Kong); George TSAO (Hong Kong); Michael WEEKES (United Kingdom)
 
Open to postgraduate students, MD, DVM, postdoctoral fellows and young scientists from Hong Kong and overseas. The course (MMPH6174) is included in the coursework curriculum for research postgraduate studies of the University of Hong Kong.
 
Registration fees (HKD 1,500, non refundable) include accommodation (on sharing twin basis for overseas participants) and food (lunch and coffee breaks).
 
A limited number of travel grants will be awarded.
 
Please return the completed form, including 1-2 letters of recommendation to hku-pasteur@hku.hk.

End of the 15th HKU-Pasteur Virology Course

We had, once again, an amazing time hosting you at HKU-Pasteur for the 15th HKU-Pasteur Virology Course on Coronaviruses! 

All the paricipants had a week to review our current understanding and knowledge gaps, with special emphasis on the origin, evolution, transmissibility, molecular biology, epidemiological and clinical features of the highly pathogenic SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV.

After presenting their work to the faculty, the fruit of an hectic week of work, the teams and all the staff gathered for a final lunch at the very iconic Jumbo Kingdom restaurant.

Congratulation to all of you, we really hope to see you soon in HKU-Pasteur, in the meantime, stay tuned for our next events!
