Core courses

The U900 offers a course in Next-Generation Sequencing and data analysis to staff of the Institut Curie, Centre for Research and Medical Section. The training is dedicated to biologists and bioanalysts interested in analyzing their own sequencing data, and will cover the main NGS applications.

The course will be taught in English.

Have you asked yourself whether your scientific results could be valuable to private industry? Or even if your research could lead to launching a start-up? Then this course is for you! Using real-world examples, we'll explain how we evaluate a project's business potential, the importance of intellectual property, and examples of good projects for launching a start-up.

Although there aren't straight-forward answers to these questions, we encourage participant interaction during the course--come with your ideas, projects, or questions! We encourage you to come take part in a lively discussion during this lunchtime session (with pizza!).

This theoretical and practical training is an introduction to image processing and analysis using the Image J software.

This career Development workshop is a unique opportunity for participants, PhD students and young postdocs, to discuss their career objectives with speakers who, after earning a PhD in biology, chose various career paths leading them away from the bench (education, industry, science communication and management, etc…). The workshop is organized in short round-tables, where participants and invited speakers will exchange in an informal way.

Each participant should have the opportunity to discuss with at least 6 speakers.

This intensive two and a half -day workshop about writing a scientific paper involves analysis of good and bad examples from the literature, practical writing exercises, and detailed feedback on writing tasks performed both individually and as teamwork. This course is now in its 14th year, and is given regularly at the DKFZ (German Cancer Research Center) in Heidelberg and the Vienna Biocentre.
The course will address many aspects of good writing style, for example: How do I find the best structure for each section of a paper? What is the correct grammatical form for citing literature or describing experiments? How do I manipulate the English language to be clear, to be persuasive or to be careful? How do I deal with negative reviewers and still get what I want?

Exchanges during this course will be in English.

Developing and using your professional network is a must at each stage of your career, whether it's defining new career options, or thinking about your next career move (either inside or outside your company) if you want to increase your chances on the job market.

However, there are some rules and guidelines that you have to know in order to help you be more effective in your job search.

The course will be facilitated by Sophie Pellegrin, PhD, coordinator of ABG's training program.

This 3-hour training session will cover aspects such as: definition of scientific integrity, different types of scientific fraud and misconduct, their frequency and consequences, and also discuss good research practices and the importance of a responsible research for science and society. Plenty of time will be left for discussion in order to get feedback from the participants’ own experience.

We're pleased to invite you to take this 1-day training course to prepare you to give a great elevator pitch:

The U900 offers a series of courses in Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and NGS data analysis to the staff of the Institut Curie, Research Center and Hospital Group. The program includes:
            - Approaches in biostatistics and research, explaining to participants the principles, methodologies, use of statistical methods and application in biology and clinical research.
            - Courses on software R which will be delivered in the form of additional exercises. The basis of the programming language R will be discussed and statistical approaches presented in the theoretical part will be implemented.
            - Application of skills acquired over a personal dataset.
