FAPESP/EU-LIFE Symposium on Cancer Genomics, Inflammation & Immunity

FAPESP/EU-LIFE Symposium on Cancer Genomics, Inflammation & Immunity

June, 7, 8 and 9, 2016
FAPESP – Rua Pio XI, 1500 – Alto da Lapa – São Paulo, SP

Over the past years, FAPESP has stimulated the realization of collaborative projects involving researchers from the State of São Paulo and foreign researchers from various research institutions and companies. Through international cooperation agreements, FAPESP aims to promote international collaborative research and increase the visibility of research carried out in our state.

The FAPESP/EU-LIFE Symposium on Cancer Genomics, Inflammation & Immunity falls within this context of cooperation and internationalization.

EU-LIFE is an alliance of 13 top research centers across Europe whose mission is to support and strengthen research excellence in the life sciences. Partners in EU-LIFE are renowned institutes that operate with similar principles of excellence, external reviews, independence, competitiveness, and internationality. EU-LIFE represents a scientific community of over 7,200 researchers who EU-LIFE believe that by joining forces they can better address complex questions in research, training and research management, thereby contributing to pushing European science forward.

The objective of the Symposium is to promote international collaborative research by strengthening relations between scientists from EU-LIFE Institutes and from the state of São Paulo, through a strong scientific program and opportunities to meet leading scientists from Europe and São Paulo working in the field of Cancer Genomics and Immunology.
