Mechanisms of Action of Immunomodulatory Agents University of Sao Paulo
We aim at exposing Brazilian students to discussions on the state-of-the- art concepts of immunology and their application to the understanding of chronic diseases, either infectious or noncommunicable diseases, and in the implementation of prophylactic and therapeutic interventions. The course is divided into 4 one-week courses, that could be attended independently and will be delivered simultaneously to Paris and New York, via videoconference. All students and the responsible for the course will meet and attend to the course (so it is a presential course) which will be transmitted online simultaneously to S_o Paulo, Paris and New York. The responsible for the course will mediate discussions with the students at the end of every videoconference session. The discussion will serve as evaluation of active participation of the students by the responsible for the course.
This course is an initiative from USP International Office and is part of an active strategy to foster international collaborations between USP and the Sorbonne University (Universit_ Pierre et Marie Curie). This is a pilot project; the course may be repeated in the future, depending on the results achieved.
