HKU-Pasteur Immunology Course Celebrated its 10th Anniversary

14 December 2018

With the aim of providing high quality, intensive training to select students from around the world and promoting inter-institutional collaborations in the immunology field, HKU-Pasteur Research Pole has been offering the HKU-Pasteur Immunology Course for over a decade. A special symposium was held on December 14, 2018, to mark the milestone 10th anniversary of the course and to celebrate the impact the course has had.

A group of local and international scientists from the United States, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Singapore and Cambodia attended the two-week course held on HKU medical campus. The year’s course focused on Quantitative Immunology, highlighting topics including modern immunological approaches for deciphering cellular subsets, responses to infection, and virus replication to the microbiome.

On the last day of the course, alumni from all over the world reunited at the symposium, where they updated each other of their scientific discoveries in a poster presentation and rendered career advice to participants of the current cohort. The symposium was graced by the presence of Professor Leung Suet-yi, Associate Dean (Research) of HKUMed; and Mr Leo Kung, Chairman of Pasteur Foundation Asia, and with a video welcome address from Mr Alexandre Giorgini, Consul General of France in Hong Kong and Macau.
