Département/Pays: Hermanus, South Africa


Training Course on the Molecular and Cellular
Basis of Infection

01-09th March, 2008
Hermanus, South Africa

Application deadline: Sunday 30th September, 2007

The above Advanced Training Course will take place under the auspices of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB), Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB), United Nation Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) as the first of the biennial courses in the IUBMB Advanced Summer School in Africa


The course will be held in Hermanus, a seaside resort located approximately 100km from Cape Town. It is situated in very pleasant surroundings with a relaxed atmosphere and does not have any of the distractions typically associated with a big city. During free time, activities such as cycling, walking, swimming and whale-watching are highly recommended. The partially isolated environment will have the desired effect of fostering closer interaction amongst the participants and with the tutors.


The course funded by IUBMB, FEBS, ICGEB, UNESCO and UNCTAD will cover a round trip economy class airfare, as well as the cost of accommodation and meals for the duration of the course.
