REVIVE Regenerative biology & medecineThis two-week course combines lectures and practical sessions that incorporate leading edge technologies to address questions in stem cells biology in the context of organogenesis and regeneration in different organisms. 

This course is intended for research scientists and PhD students who already have laboratory experience and a good knowledge (equivalent to a Master level) in developmental and cell biology. It provides a wide scope of how stem cells have adopted strategies to effect organogenesis and regeneration in different organisms. 

The practical part covers methods and techniques that will allow participants to reproduce state of the art technologies in their own research activities. Leading-edge approaches in identification, derivation, analysis and imaging of stem cells will be presented. Distinct model systems and organisms have been chosen to expose the participants to the advantages and challenges in each paradigm, and to provide added insights into the biology of stem cells. The models include mouse, zebrafish, chick, Drosophila, ES and iPS cells. 

Lectures will be presented by selected speakers who investigate not only stem cells but also use innovative technologies.

Networking and discussion opportunities will be enhanced by the convivial formal and ad hoc discussion sessions in the teaching facilities.

Travel assistance: a limited number of bursaries are available for travel assistance.

Contact: Vania ROSAS MAGALLANES.


The committee of the course will evaluate applications.
