This is a high-caliber scientific course that would cover various aspects of parasitology from molecular biology and epidemiology to genomics, targeted for students in the Middle East as well as North and Sub-Saharan Africa
To provide high-caliber scientific training covering various aspects of parasitology research from molecular biology and epidemiology to genomics. We believe that it is critical that scientific skills that are well established elsewhere in the world are disseminated to endemic areas where they can be put into practice to face local issues.
To provide an environment where young scientists from conflicted political areas are given the opportunity to focus on their mutual professional interests and goals, and to promote networking and the building of professional collaborations across these areas.
Course Dates and location:
Dates: July 24 - August 6, 2022
Location: University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland
Application Deadline: March 5th, 2022
Thank you to all who submitted an application for MeBoP 2022. We received a large number of applications and many were very good. Decisions have been made by committee and we are excited to have accepted 16 students.
MeBoP is a 2 week intensive course that will host a small select group of top candidates (12-16 grad-students, postdocs and young professionals) from Middle Eastern as well as North and Sub-Saharan African countries.
Each day will consist of a 4-hour morning lecture session followed by an afternoon lab practical. Lectures and modules are given by leading scientists in the field of parasite research (see program).
