The “Molecular Mechanisms in Cancer – Translating Discoveries into Personalised Therapies” Eurolife Summer School lasts one week and will be held in Leiden (The Netherlands) from 9th to 13th July 2018. Cancer is one of the most common causes of death around the world; one out of every eight of all deaths is due to cancer. Cancer arises when cells acquire gene mutations that induce uncontrolled cell growth often resulting in invasion into other tissues. Standard chemo- and radio therapy are aimed at killing the rapidly proliferating cancer cells. However, these therapies can be ineffective and have effects on normal cells that cause serious side effects […]
Eurolife encourages the participation of its undergraduate, Master and PhD students to existing summer schools of the different Eurolife institutions.
The Summer School proposal by Prof. Peter ten Dijke (Dept. of Molecular Cell Biology, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands), entitled “Molecular Mechanisms in Cancer – Translating Discoveries into Personlised Therapies“, has been selected for funding by the Eurolife network.
Basic and clinical aspects of neurobiology of rhythms is a 3-days summer school organized by the University of Strasbourg, together with the Institute of Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences. The aim of this Summer school is to transmit to Master2 and doctoral students the scientific and practical bases of biological rhythms and to stress the necessity of integrating the concept of biological rhythmicity in any experimental work.
The “Antimicrobial drug resistance – Research and Innovation” Eurolife Summer School will be held in Barcelona (School of Medicine – University of Barcelona) from 10th-14th July 2017. This 5-days International Summer School is focused on the current challenges of antimicrobial resistance including: molecular bases of antimicrobial resistance, antimicrobial stewardship, strategies to control the emergence and spread of multidrug resistant bacteria in different settings, design of new rapid diagnostic tools, research for the development of new drugs, novel therapeutic and diagnostic strategies as well as interventions to tackle antimicrobial resistance.
Edinburgh Summer School Clinical Education (ESSCE) is a week long course of interactive workshops to develop your skills around teaching, learning and assessment, with enough theory to give you the tools and the confidence to lead change, evaluate developments and ensure excellence in your future practice.
Goettingen Spirit Summer School “Biological Research in Dentistry”.
This summer school focuses on modern cell and molecular biology research in dentistry. This approach will open the different disciplines in dentistry for more medical-biological research strategies. The summer school is structured to give impulses towards a basic science research perspective in dentistry.
