Students at Fundación Ciencia & Vida are requested to give a 20-25 min presentation to show and discuss their research project progress with other students and researchers. These seminars are held each Thursday at 9 a.m. in the auditorium of the 4th floor.

International Seminar: “Introducing CrAssphage: Discovering virus that is present in half the people in the world!”

May 17th, 2016 We are surrounded by bacteria and their viruses, and those microbes have evolved alongside us. The human microbiome projects around the world seek to explore the microbes in both healthy people and those with diseases. By sampling different body sites and different time intervals we can identify changes in the microbiota that […]

SEMINAR: “The impact of sequencing for studying biology today”

March 10th, 2016 Genomic and metagenomic experiments are generating massive amounts of data today. Technological advances make it increasingly cheaper to produce sequencing data, even cheaper than the cost to store, manage and analyze it. The massive amounts of data often require the utilization of supercomputers. This talk will touch upon some of the genomic […]

Cell Biology Course: The cell in times of interdisciplinary research Institut Curie, France – Fundación Ciencia & Vida, Chile (January 18-22, 2016)

The aim of the course is to stimulate high level discussions around Cell Biology (cell migration and mechanics, cytoskeleton dynamics, epigenetics, immunological synapses, developmental biology, membrane trafficking, system biology, neurobiology, biophysics) and particularly, to think about how the study of the cell has reshaped and gained insight from diverse disciplines, particularly physics, and new technologies. […]

International Spring School Applied Statistical Thermodynamics 2015: from theory to molecular dynamics simulation

This International Spring School uses a BootCamp format to expose the students to intensive two weeks all-day of theoretical and practical knowledge acquisition. It is especially intended for PhD students, as well as for young Researchers or Professionals in the field, who wish to acquire state-of-the-art knowledge about the Statistical Thermodynamics foundations of Molecular Dynamic […]

INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON CANCER IMMUNOLOGY AND IMMUNOTHERAPY: 18 DECEMBER 2014

“TRANSLATING BASIC SCIENCE INTO NEXT GENERATION THERAPIES” Breakthroughs in cancer immunology research have led to the emergence of cancer immunotherapy as a new class of treatment for a variety of malignancies. Amplification of tumor-specific T cells and blockade of T cell inhibitory signals have been demonstrated to eliminate primary and disseminated tumors, conferring durable clinical […]
