First German - Argentinean Workshop > > Program





  1. Debate the technical approaches that arise from different innovations in a global context by comparing the experience of Argentina and Germany.
  2. Update on practical methods to foster collaboration between the immunology, bioengineering, genomics, proteomics, bio-informatics, nanotechnology, computer science, epidemiology, and microbiology communities.
  3. Develop interactive collaborative relationships between academic, government, private/foundations and pharmaceautical sectors.

Purpose and Scope
The workshop will be a 2-days intensive lecture course on “Pathogen invasion and immune evasion” for a maximum of 100 young investigators (graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty/scientists) in the biomedical sciences from Latin American countries. The workshop will be founded in direct collaboration with Twincore Institute of Germany. The main objective of the program is to introduce the Latin American investigators to the immunology field through lectures and discussions of scientific papers, as well as to create collaborations between Latin American and German researchers that may result in long-term research collaborations in the Immunology field.

Description of the workshop
The workshop will include a total of 25 hours of discussions as well as recreational activities of selected topics related to the pathogen immune-evasion to promote future collaborations between attendants.
Attendants will acquire specific knowledge in immunology field in relation to biomedical research. In addition, they will be part of a direct and powerful exchange of ideas with leading academics in the field, both from Argentina and Germany.
The workshop will generate new professional opportunities for researchers and for scientific collaboration between scholars from the Latin America and Germany.
