language English
duration 2 weeks
fee EUR 50

The CENTURI Summer School provides an original learning experience exploring the main challenges in systems biology with interdisciplinary questioning - an exciting opportunity to interact with expert scientists.

The mornings will be dedicated to lectures by high-level speakers to tackle biology’s challenges in data analysis but also to presentation of experimental methods used to collect biological data in experimental labs and to specific sessions to better understand research and daily life in academia. The afternoons are dedicated to hands-on projects on biological data. Participants will work in small groups and use state-of-the-art equipment to collect and analyze biological data sets. Participants will also have the chance to present their project and benefit from valuable feedback from a tutor and a scientific committee.

Course leader

Members of the CENTURI community will give lectures in the morning and offer guidance during the hands on experiments in the afternoon. 4 keynote speakers will also give lectures during this week:
- Stanislas Dehaene (Collège de France)
- Jérémy Harroc
