FEBS PRACTICAL COURSES – State-of-the-art infection models for human pathogenic fungi, Feb 2016
This course is designed to train graduate students, post-docs, and young independent investigators in state-of-the-art infection models to study human fungal pathogens. Laboratory exercises include different infection models such as cell culture, interaction with primary immune cells, alternative model hosts and murine models, and a wide array of read-out methods, e.g. adhesion, invasion, damage and phagocytosis assays, immunological methods, transcription analysis and in vivo imaging. Invited speakers will provide further insight into fungal biology pathogenesis. Social evenings and joint meals provide ample opportunities for informal exchange with lecturers.
