IMRB Summer School, July 3-5, 2019
The first edition of the IMRB International Summer University took place from 3 to July 2019 at the ANSES headquarters in Maisons-Alfort. It was devoted to environmental stress in the development of chronic diseases. Four main sessions were proposed:
1) nutritional stress and infection in the development of diseases;
2) pollution and inflammation in chronic diseases;
3) molecular mechanisms of inflammation; and
4) role of environmental agencies and start-ups in combating the burden of chronic diseases.
Each session was an opportunity to hear from CIRM and foreign researchers at the forefront of the proposed scientific themes, as well as representatives of French and European environmental agencies and start-ups.
A visit to the environmental laboratory at the University of Paris Est, a workshop on project design and short presentations from selected abstracts are integrated in the program, enabling young researchers to work directly with senior investigators to promote their scientific training.
