Molecular Biology of the Cell - 2016

Cells are the functional units of life and cell biology explores the complex processes that regulate their activity. As such, cell biology is a mix of disciplines that range from computations to imaging living organisms.

The aim of this course (theory and practice) of 4 weeks is to attract an international group of students (Master students and young PhD students) to this research area by bringing together leading scientists for a series of state-of the-art lectures and cutting edge practical sessions. The practical course provides training in cell culture of transfected and infected cells, in vitro reconstitution of cellular functions, gene inactivation, and introduces students to cutting edge techniques of live imaging. Every week a specific theme is tackled and talks and experiments alternate.

Registration on Institut Pasteur's site
Organizers: Roberto Bruzzone, Philippe Chavrier, Chiara Zurzolo

Master and PhD students
Candidates must have a good knowledge of basic laboratory techniques at the Master level.

The final exam for participants not enrolled in a master 2 program of a partner university will take place on Friday February 5th, 2016; master 2 students from partner universities will take the final exam from February 8th to 12th, 2016.

The Institut Pasteur Diploma will be awarded to students having successfully completed the final examination.
This course is run in agreement with University Paris-Diderot and a University Diploma may also be granted.
Credits for Master 2 students will be given to students from Universities Paris-Descartes, Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris Diderot and Orsay-Paris and attending conferences can be validated as Doctoral School Modules.

Number of students: 20
Fellowships (1500 euros each) will be granted to the 3 best applicants from foreign countries to cover, in part, their travel and accommodation expenses.
The course will be taught in English.
