Call for applications - Pasteur-Cnam School of Public Health master degree - deadline: June, 15th 2015

The Pasteur-Cnam School of Public Health master degree is recruiting its eighth class. 

The applications should be sent before June 15, 2015. 

This year, students may also choose to apply directly to the “Infectious risk” specialisation under certain conditions. 
Scholarships from the Department of International Cooperation of the Principaute de Monaco will be allocated to African students admitted through the usual track (start on October 1st, 2015; two scholarships) or through the short track with direct entry into specialization (start on January 11th, 2016; two scholarships).

Students of the French International School of Hong Kong visited HKU-Pasteur Research Pole

The HKU – Pasteur Research Pole had been pleased to host The French International School (FIS) of Hong Kong this week. About 20 students and 3 teachers have made the trip for this occasion, on the 6th of May.

The goal of this two hours visit was to, first, give an overview of the organization and mission of the HKU-Pasteur Research Pole and the Institut Pasteur International Network, and second, to visit the laboratory with a demonstration of different techniques which are used in the lab (western blot, cell culture, DNA extraction, …).

Thanks to the curiosity and the interest of the students and the passionate team of the lab, this visit had been a success.

A second group from the FIS will visit the pole on the 20th of May, 2015.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Croucher Summer Course:  Advanced Imaging - From System Biology to Single Cell & Single Molecule Analysis -          Extended Deadline: May 22, 2015

Application form     Tips for a successful application    Tentative program




The 1st Croucher Summer Course on Advanced Imaging - From System Biology to Single Cell & Single Molecule Analysis will be co-organised by HKU-Pasteur Research Pole, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong Faculty Core Facility


August 2-8, 2015


Hong Kong Jockey Club Building for Interdisciplinary Research

5 Sasson Road, Pokfulam, Hong Kong


The ability to assess and interrogate biological processes at the level of the single cell and the single molecule is revealing a new complexity in which phenotypic cell-to-cell variability emerges as a result of highly deterministic processes.  In single cell and single molecule approaches, imaging offers the unique advantage of observing these biological circuits function over time in intact cells, as well as the exciting possibility of quantitatively understanding the deterministic processes contributing to phenotypic cellular variability.

In thiscourse, the aim is to bring together scientific leaders in the integration of imaging tools with conventional and next generation “omic” tools that enable the analysis of biological circuits at the single molecule and single cell level.

Participants’ profile:

This course will be aimed at advanced postgraduate students (MPhil and PhD) and post-docs who have already started or are planning to use new and emerging techniques around single cell & single molecule analysis in their ongoing research projects.


Candidates are invited to download course Application form and follow the Tips for a successful application.

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

Accommodation (on sharing twin basis) and food (canteen-style) will be provided.
