BioHC thematic schools give highly motivated graduates and professionals the opportunity to learn about translational research approaches to health-care and human well-being.
Organised by ESI within the framework of the BioHealth Computing Erasmus mundus Master degree programme (universities of Grenoble, Barcelona, Turin, Maastricht, Cluj-Napoca), BioHC comprises three specialist schools:
SaferNanoDesign - Safer Ecodesign for Nanomaterials;
IBD4Health - Innovation on Big Data for Healthy Living ;
CompMed - Computer-based simulation for Optimised Healthcare.
Intensive, innovative and international
BioHC thematic schools bring together young scientists from diverse cultural and scientific backgrounds. A typical school will have between fifteen and twenty students, representing around ten nationalities, with backgrounds in biology, biotechnology, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, pharmacy …). Faculty members include leading specialists from the BioHealth Computing consortium universities and invited speakers from academia and industry.
BioHC thematic schools are built around the case study of a particular pathology or device, which serves as a focus for lectures, practical sessions and interdisciplinary group work based on the collaborative resolution of complex problems.
