The HKU-Pasteur Research Pole is delighted to announce the return of its renowned Croucher Summer courses with a new edition on emerging viral infections: “Outbreak investigation and pandemic preparedness” from June 18 to 23 2023.
Over the years, HKU-Pasteur has built a strong partnership with the Croucher Foundation, which has provided considerable financial support to our course series and programs to promote scientific exchanges with the Institut Pasteur. We share the common goal to educate and inspire postgraduate students and early career researchers from Hong Kong and the wider region with a global vision of health problems and unmet patients’ needs.
With an emphasis on SARS-CoV-2, understanding of its biology and countermeasures developed to mitigate the pandemic, this new Croucher Summer Course will address the grand challenges of outbreak investigation and pandemic preparedness with an inclusive One-Health approach.
The Faculty will introduce participants to innovative concepts in epidemiology, molecular diagnostic, serology, host-pathogen interaction, pathogenesis, immunology, surveillance and nonpharmaceutical interventions.
- Open to postgraduate students, MD, DVM, postdoctoral fellows and young scientists from Hong Kong and overseas.
- Registration fee is HKD3,000 (refundable in case of course cancellation) and includes accommodation (on sharing twin basis) and lunch.
- Fellowships covering registration and travel expenses are available.
