Stages voor Bachelors

 

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) organizes the 5th edition of the Summer School ‘Biotech in Brussels’ from Monday 3 to Friday 14 August 2020. The summer school is targeted at Bachelor students with a background in biology, biotechnology, chemistry, biomedical sciences or a related field. From this year onwards, the summer school will be spread across two weeks in order to give every subject addressed ample time and consideration.

Participants will be immersed in the multidisciplinary and international research environment of the VUB which has an excellent reputation in training and research in molecular biology and biotechnology. Inspiring lectures will be combined with hands-on workshops with experienced researchers in state-of-the-art laboratories of the “Structural Biology Brussels”, “Microbiology” and “Cellular and Molecular Immunology” research groups.

You will go on a fascinating journey starting from the molecular level with a focus on proteins, to the cellular level with a focus on the engineering of microorganisms for use as cell factories, and on disease. The common thread through all the workshops and lectures are two classes of proteins: green fluorescent protein, which can be used as a research tool, and nanobodies, a unique class of camel antibodies with far-reaching applications in biotechnology and medicine.

Date: 3 to 14 August 2020
Place: VUB Humanities, Sciences and Engineering Campus, Brussels, Belgium
Credits: 3 ECTS
Registration fee: 775 euro (excl. accommodation) or 1350/1500 euro (incl. accommodation in shared/private room)
