FEBS advanced practical course, February 16 – 22, 2020, Jena, Germany


The FEBS advanced practical course “State-of-the-art alternative infection models to study molecular mechanisms of human fungal infections” will be held on February 16 – 22, 2020, in Jena, Germany

This course is designed to train graduate students, post-docs, and young independent investigators in alternative state-of-the-art infection models to study human fungal pathogens. Training is provided through laboratory exercises and demonstrations, lectures by resident faculty and visiting seminar speakers, and informal discussions.

Laboratory exercises focus primarily on Candida and Aspergillus, and include different infection models such as cell culture, interaction with primary immune cells, and alternative model hosts, combined with a wide array of state-of-the-art read-out methods.

In order to broaden the participants understanding of infection models and pathogenesis, invited seminar speakers provide further insight into infection biology of human pathogenic fungi and the methods and models used to study interaction of these fungi with the host.

Social evenings and coffee/lunch breaks provide ample opportunities for informal exchange and discussions between participants and lecturers.

Limited to 16 participants.

The official FEBS site for the course with information how to apply for the course will open soon.
Similar courses were already held in 2013 and 2016 (see attached FEBS News 2013).
