    3rd Institut Pasteur International Network Symposium celebrates Biomarkers

    The opening ceremony of the Institut Pasteur International Network Symposium held on 29th of November at the Institut Pasteur Conference Center gathered nearly 350 participants.
    Building on the success of the two previous editions, the Symposium focuses this year on all research aspects that might potentially lead to the development of new biomarkers.
    In his opening speech, Christian Brechot, President of the Institut Pasteur, reminded the audience of “the importance new biomarkers discovery and their application into healthcare to meet the challenges posed by both infectious and non-transmissible diseases. Institut Pasteur International Network with its 33 members spread across the five continents is naturally positioned to play a major role in response to these challenges”.
    The opening lecture was covered by Dr. Bali Pulendran, researcher at Emory Vaccine Center (Atlanta) and pioneer in the use of system biology to predict the effectiveness of vaccines and identify new correlates of protection against infectious diseases.
    All week long, 70 speakers will be succeeding one another on stage and more than 150 posters will be presented by scientists coming from more than 40 countries.
