[Applications closed] 10th Cell Biology Course

Quantitative approaches to cell communication, transport and cell migration in health and diseases

The HKU-Pasteur Cell Biology Course is back!

NEW Deadline for Applications: 22 March 2024


The 10th HKU-Pasteur Cell Biology Course will focus on the great potential of cell biology, the discipline that investigates the organizing principles of cells, to contribute to many areas of societal needs, as we go beyond the interactions of components within a single level of biological organization. 


Lectures will highlight the integrated approach, spanning biology, chemistry, physics, and imaging, to interrogate these core principles (cell division, intracellular transport, organelles, cell migration, cancer….) in mechanistic fashion by drawing parallels between unicellular organisms, such as yeast, and multicellular organisms, such as plants and animals.Have a look at the detailed program of the Cell Biology Course here. 

  • 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 2,000, 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.
