About the India-EMBO Lecture Course
Malaria is a classical example of a complex disease that is shaped not only by the interactions between the parasite, vectors and humans at the molecular level but also by the environment in which they all thrive. Malaria elimination is inconceivable in absence of a detailed understanding of these molecular interactions.
The principal themes of this India|EMBO Lecture Course are overlapping and revolve around malaria molecular epidemiology, evolution & population genetics. The main objective of the course is to collate and transfuse the state of the art principles, practices and understanding of the central theme between the experts in malaria (and beyond) and the current and future torchbearers of malaria elimination (and finally, eradication). This India|EMBO Lecture Course is designed in an interactive (rather than didactic) way with multi-directional and multi-dimensional perspectives and provide ample opportunities for interaction. In addition to the lectures, the participants will be benefited from a hands-on exercise, networking sessions for scientific writing, work-life balance, and career guidance.
This India|EMBO Lecture Course is aimed at PhD students, PostDocs and young researchers, however, researchers from academia and industry who are interested to learn and apply the knowledge are also encouraged to apply.
