The TrypsSchool will happen from 19 to 30 of September 2022.
We are glad to receive your application!
This SPSAS, focused on two parasites causing two neglected diseases that are endemic in the Americas, Leishmaniasis and Chagas disease, will occur on the campus of the University of São Paulo at Ribeirão Preto, Medical School. The SPSAS convey the strong interdisciplinarity needed and employed, bringing together experts from different fields (molecular biology, genetic manipulation, structural biology, metabolism, epigenetics, high-throughput approaches, and drug design).
The program of the SPSAS is organized as follows:
Ribeirão Preto Medical School, University of São Paulo – Ribeirão Preto –
September 19th- 30th, 2022
Lectures – Plenary conferences;
Fundamentals – Short courses on basic aspects related to the following topics:
- Genetics of trypanosomatids: organization and regulation of gene expression
- Biochemistry and Metabolism on trypanosomatids
- Therapeutics and new venues
Thematic sessions – Workshops led by two PIs who will introduce the topic in 45 minutes. A debate will follow the presentations. The proposed topics are:
- Genetic tool kit: what can we do?
- High-throughput approaches and bottlenecks
- Approaches for drug discovery
Group paper presentation: the attendees will be split into groups in charge of presenting suggested published work in a seminar format.
Flash Talks, Oral and Posters presentations: attendees will present their own work in progress in one or more formats.
