Our goals are to diffuse among South American Universities the most recent researches conducted in Institut Curie in the area of Cell Biology and to create strong interactions between our research scientists and the local experts in the field.
We further aim at facilitating scientific exchanges between French laboratories and South American students who wish to acquire an expertise in the areas and technologies currently developed in the Institut Curie.

Scientific articles discussion and project writing.
Four experimental poster sessions will be held during the course, thus participants are encouraged to present their research work in a poster.
