The DANIEL JOUVANCE FOUNDATION will set up the 3rd International School in Marine Biology at the Oceanography Center, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, from October 29th to November 05th, 2017.
This 3rd International School in Marine Biology will associate the Daniel Jouvance Foundation, the Pierre & Marie Curie University (UPMC) and the Oceanography Center of the University of Cyprus (OC-UCY).
The Daniel Jouvance - UPMC International School in Marine Biology is a summer school for postgraduate students of the Eastern Mediterranean Region, and aims to summarize the latest advances in Marine Biology.
Lecturers are well-known researchers in Marine Biological Sciences, from Cyprus, Italy, Israel, and France.
The School will incorporate intensive lectures (in English) focused on the current issues in marine biology in Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean Basin. It will also include presentations on Marine Biotechnology, as well as on the novel approaches such as Genomics, Post-genomics and Bio-informatics. To illustrate the power of these techniques, corals and other symbioses will be discussed as a case study.
Attendance is limited to 30 PhD students and post-doctoral fellows from the Eastern Mediterranean Region with interests in Marine Biology. Costs for accommodation and food will be covered by the Daniel Jouvance Foundation. Participants will only have to pay for their travel. Participants will have to stay for the whole duratino of the course.
