UE Europe: « Integrative cell biology and immunology: from homeostasis to diseases »

04_Enseignement_UE_Homeostasis to diseases.1

The course is part of the Master BioSciences (ENS-Lyon, University Lyon-1, France). It is open to external master and PhD students upon request (6 ECTS). 2-3 conferences by leading specialists in their discipline are held every day followed by afternoon sessions dedicated to informal round tables with students, speakers and teaching staff. The course is held at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon.

Course organizors: Yann Leverrier  and Jacqueline Marvel

Course objectives

The course provides a broad understanding of ways in which multicellular systems maintain their homeostasis and a deep insight into the immune system function in health and disease.  Sessions content will ensure an opening on basic, clinical and industrial research by bringing together academic research scientists, clinicians and private research scientists.
