Período: 20/05/2019 a 24/05/2019

Descrição

The program “Escola de Altos Estudos” supports International fellowships for foreign researchers to visit laboratories in Brazil, give lectures and interact with graduated students.

The course is scheduled to have tow modules, each one with two foreign and Brazilian scientists. Each module will be divided in a two 5-day course in Porto Alegre and a 5-day course in Rio de Janeiro (similar courses in each city). In Porto Alegre, the course will be done at Centro de Biotecnologia (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul). In Rio de Janeiro activities will be done at Instituto de Bioquímica Médica (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro) under the coordenation of Prof. Pedro Oliveira.

 The objective is to provide attendees with a forum to discuss tick physiology and share ideas, possibilities, and challenges toward tick control methods. Attendees will be provided with an understanding of how the rapid advances in genomics and proteomics applications have affected tick vaccine research. The courses will promote discussions and possibilities to discover new interdisciplinary collaborative partnerships.

 

Conferências da primeira etapa:

1. Ben J Mans (Barend Johannes Mans), Agricultural Research Council, Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute, Africa do Sul –Evolution of vertebrate hemostatic and inflammatory control mechanisms in blood-feeding arthropods.

2. José Marcos Ribeiro, Vector Biology Section, NIAID/DIR, NIH, Estados Unidos – Insights in transciptome and proteome analyses of hematophagous animals.
