6th Cell Biology Summer Course / Chile - 2018

This course in English will immerse students and researchers in an intense collaborative work, stimulating creative thinking for the development of an “out-of-the-box” project. This will be a full week of hard work and fruitful discussion with peers that will encourage the participants to question their pre-established ideas about cell biology.
Eight researchers from France and eight researchers from Chile will be intensely committed to train and guide the students, encouraging them to think in an interdisciplinary and ambitious way. We seek to foster a friendly and collaborative environment that will not only provide top-level training for students, but also promote mutual learning and networking opportunities for all participants.

Organizers: Ana-Maria Lennon and Claire Hivroz (Institut Curie, France), Carolina Torrealba and Betsi Flores (Fundación Ciencia & Vida, Chile)

The course is open to Master, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows from France, Chile and South American countries.

Selection based on application and motivation. The course may offer scholarships that include travel and accommodation expenses, budget permitting.

Our goals are to diffuse among South American academic institutions the most recent investigations conducted at Institut Curie in the area of Cell Biology and to create strong interactions between our 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 at Institut Curie.

Scientific articles discussion and project preparation. Four experimental poster sessions will be held during the course to encourage the participants to present their current research work in a poster.
