[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: 


 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!
