The course encourages close interactions and dialogue between students and teaching staffs. Round-table discussions steered by professors will be devoted to review and discuss topics developed during the courses. Workshops will introduce students to the challenge imposed to public health systems by endemic and pandemic infectious disease outbreaks. Practical learning will be conducted to provide essential knowledge on cutting edge technologies and methodological approaches devoted to the study of infectious diseases.

The panel of professors is composed by world-leader scientists from France (Institut Pasteur Paris, French Academy of Sciences, College de France, INSERM), Germany (EMBL Heidelberg), China (IPS, Fudan University, Tsinghua University, Hong-Kong University), Senegal (Institut Pasteur Dakar) and Cambodia (Institut Pasteur of Cambodia). All traveling costs (air ticket, accommodation) of the accepted students will be funded.


The committee of the course will evaluate applications.
