5th HKU-Pasteur Cell Biology Course Highlights

During this two-week of course 21 young and talented students from 10 different countries gained knowledge about vesicular trafficking and intracellular transport with a special attention to microscopy techniques used for understanding of infection biology and host-pathogen interactions. The practical workshops organized by Jost ENNINGA, Kristine SCHAUER, Jennifer FREDLUND and Musa MHLANGA focused on use of a normalized cellular system to compare bacterial invasion of host cell by different bacteria and on super resolution imaging of bacterial infection.


On the last day, students and faculty of the 5th HKU-Pasteur Cell Biology Course on imaging host-pathogens interactions indulge themselves with Cantonese delicacies and wines during the Awards Dinner.
