About the IRIC Summer School in Systems Biology:
The IRIC Summer School in Systems Biology includes a series of required and elective theoretical courses (BIM 6064A-B-C-D) that cover various topics related to cellular and molecular biology of cancer, molecular genetics of eukaryotes, immuno-oncology, model organisms and approaches in systems biology.
The Summer School also includes required and electives practical courses (BIM 6065A-B-C-D-E) that emphasize hands-on laboratory training related to molecular biology (site-directed mutagenesis, DNA sequencing, construction of expression vectors), cell analysis (microscopy, flow cytometry), expression and purification of proteins (FPLC chromatography), analysis of the chemical and biophysical properties of proteins (mass spectrometry, circular dichroism, ultracentrifugation), functional genomics (high-throughput sequencing), bioinformatics (databases, network analysis, modeling of the structure of macromolecules) and the use of model organisms (mouse, yeast, nematode, fruit fly). Throughout these practical courses, students conduct mini-research projects using the IRIC’s core facilities.
During the IRIC Summer School in Systems Biology, you will benefit from the expertise and support of an impressive team of more than thirty researchers, professors and scientists from the IRIC, the Université of Montreal, the CHUM Research Centre (CRCHUM) and the Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital Research Centre (CRHMR).
By its rich and dynamic programming and its innovative academic approach, the IRIC Summer School in Systems Biology provides high-level training that helps students become familiar with the equipment and scientific resources available at IRIC and prepares them for a promising career in a variety of areas related to cancer and biomedical research.
