São Paulo School of Advanced Science on pathogenic trypanosomatids: from basic biology to pathogenesis and new therapies
The TrypsSchool will happen (to be defined) in two campi from the University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto and São Carlos.
The program of the ESPCA is organized as follows:
Lectures – plenary conferences.
Fundamentals – short-courses on basic aspects related to the following topics:
- Genetics of trypanosomatids: organization and regulation of gene expression
- Biochemistry and Metabolism on trypanosomatids
- Therapeutics and new venues
Thematic sessions: workshops led by two PIs who will introduce the topic in 45 minutes. A debate will follow the presentations.
Group paper presentation: the attendees will be split in groups in charge of presenting suggested published work in a seminar format.
Flash Talks, Oral and Posters presentations: attendees will present in one or more format their own work in progress.
