Cours international

5th course on Developmental Biology, from stem cells to morphogenesis - 2014

The aim of the programme is to provide the participants with a comprehensive coverage of the paradigms, problems and technologies of modern Developmental Biology paying particular attention to stem cells.

Training in theoretical and experimental aspects of normal and abnormal development is developed through a variety of embryonic systems using state-of-the-art instrumentation and methodology.

Institut Curie and Université Pierre et Marie Curie organize their 5th International Developmental Biology course in collaboration with the Regenerative and Developmental Biology programme of Harvard University and the Stowers Institute for Medical sciences of Kansas City from September 22 to October 24, 2014.
Practicals: September 22 - October 10, 2014 (3 weeks)
Lectures: October 13 - 24, 2014 (2 weeks)

Organizers: Allison Bardin, Yohanns Bellaïche, Claire Fournier-Thibault, Jean-René Huynh, Muriel Umbhauer

The programme is proposed in two versions: a 5 week-long course including 3 weeks of practicals and 2 weeks of lectures (limited to 18 students) or a 2 week-long version including only the lectures (limited to 35). Students will present scientific articles related to the topics discussed. Students and lecturers will have the opportunity to meet during an informal coffee break/lunch every day.
The UPMC grants 12 ECTS for the 5 week-long course and 6 ECTS for the 2 week-long course.

This course is open to Master 2 or PhD students. Students will be selected on their University scientific background and their motivation to attend the course. There are no registration fees.
