Summer Course on Cell Biology

5th course_Chili

The aim of the course is to stimulate high level discussions around Cell Biology (Cell migration and mechanics, cytoskeleton dynamics, epigenetics, immunological synapses, developmental biology, membrane trafficking, system biology, neurobiology, biophysics) and particularly, to think about how the study of the cell has reshaped and gained insight from diverse disciplines, particularly physics, and new technologies. This discussion will be the guiding line during this one-week course, where we will have seminars from the sixteen participating scientists as well as eight working groups, each composed of five graduate students that will be co-guided by a Chilean and a French researcher in the development of a research project.

Course in English



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 Institut Curie.

Personal Work

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.
