Summer school “Economic Principles in Cell Biology” - Paris, July 8-11, 2024

Main  |  Schedule and teachers  |  Practical information

Our third summer school on Economic principles in cell biology will take place at the Learning Planet Institute Paris and online (hybrid). Like our previous summer schools, it will be related to the open textbook “Economic principles in cell biology” on cellular physiology and resource allocation, developed by international researchers as a resource for learning and teaching.

The school targets undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdoctoral researchers with a natural sciences background (including biological sciences, physics, engineering, or mathematics). It focuses on mathematical modeling of cellular systems (without wet experiments) and shows how mathematical models and “resource allocation thinking” can help you understand cells. During the course, we collect feedback from students about book chapters, and hope to recruit new contributors to our book project.

The school will also feature an Atelier SEnS, an interactive one-day workshop around participants' personal values while working in science.

Registration is free but mandatory. Registration deadline for in-person participation: February 29. Registration for online participation: July 5.
