International Workshop: Basic techniques in current biology research.

juin 28 @ 2:00 - juin 30 @ 6:00


Molecular biology and immunology fields are witnessing their golden age due to the unprecedented advancement in high dimensional techniques that led to an important breakthroughs and treatments, taking the rapid development of coronavirus vaccines as an exemple.

In Algeria, the gap between theory and practice has always been a challenge in science, and the reasons for this vary, the most common is the lack of lab facilities and equipment especially in the universities, which is now compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected many in person laboratory courses and on international student mobility and exchange opportunities.

To reduce ”theory -practice gap” the need to give students a deeper understanding of a concept by creating an appropriate context is important. For that, the virtual lab workshop which is collaboration between Blida-1 University and Miriam Merad’s laboratory, at lcahn School of medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York City, allows to train young Algerian researchers to solve a scientific question following experimental approaches without stepping into a Physical laboratory. In this virtual lab the experiments performed are provided as an audio and streaming of an actual lab experiment, it is an introduction for Algerian students to scientific research aimed at teaching them how to raise and respond to a research question, which appropriate experimental approach to choose, and how to interpret the obtained results.

As a perspective, Techniques learnt by the young scientists could be translate in the future to develop new research projects.

Learning objectives:

-Learn how to answer scientific questions following experimental approaches;

-Learn common techniques used in cancer- immunology research;

-Learn how interpret and analyze data.

Participants: Undergraduate/Graduate students, Lecturer and researchers.

Targeted disciplines: Biology, Pharmacy, Medicine.

Language: English.

Duration: 3days.

Experimental  approach:

    • KP cells culture and injection
    • Tumor quantification
    • Determine the effect of IL-4blockade in triggering DCs function and T cell response in vivo.
