9th HKU-Pasteur Immunology Course: “Quantitative Immunology” (applications closed)

Dear colleagues, thank you for your numerous applications for the 9th HKU-Pasteur Immunology Course, focusing this year on "Quantitative Immunology".

19 – 31 March, 2017


The general theme of this year’s course will be Quantitative Immunology to explore the ongoing transition from reductionist studies, based on the application of genetic approaches in animal models, to a more integrated view of the physiology and pathology of the immune system. The course will highlight the latest advances in large-scale, quantitative data collection and computational analysis as applied to human immune function in health and disease.

18-25 September 2016: Computational Biology for Infectious Diseases summer school in Hanoi, Vietnam

The CBID (Computational Biology for Infectious Diseases) summer school, designed to provide students, researchers and professionals working on infectious diseases with basic concepts and hands-on experience in quantitative analyses of high throughput data is taking place at the University of Science and Technology of Hanoi, from 18 to 25 September 2016.

Supported, among other sponsors, by the Institut Pasteur International Network, the CBID summer school is this year again a great success. Over 75 participants coming from South East Asia countries are enthusiastically getting trained on molecular phylogenetics, (meta)genomics, population genetics, transmission dynamics and epidemics forecasting. During the second week, the students will work in subgroups of 3-5 and carry on mini-projects on real data under the supervision of the trainers.

Please find more information about CBID summer school here.
