The 1st Advanced Summer School-Interrogations at the Biointerfaces, is the first edition of the Summer Schools in Cancer and Regeneration promoted by INEB – Instituto Nacional de Engenharia Biomédica, o IPATIMUP – Instituto de Patologia e Imunologia Molecular da Universidade do Porto e o IBEC - Institut de Bioenginyeria de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain. We will have a set of experts on both subjects (oncology and regeneration) that will discuss the biological basis of both processes. There will be hands-on sessions on topics and lab techniques relevant to the scope of the course, namely experimental protocols that can be applied in both research areas, namely the study of stem cells in regeneration and cancer – the so called tumour initiating cells. All participants are encouraged to submit in the form of a poster, its latest results. With this initiative we seek to stimulate greater interaction and exchange of ideas between participants and speakers and to raise new questions in the interface between regeneration and cancer. The best poster will be awarded.

Lectures will take place at Biblioteca Almeida Garrett - Jardins do Palácio de Cristal. Lab sessions will take place at INEB - Instituto de Engenharia Biomédica and IPATIMUP - Instituto de Patologia e Imunologia Molecular da Universidade do Porto.

A previous series of advanced courses run by INEB was held also at this time of the year. The lates editions of the course focused on Cell-Biomaterial Interactions and over 100 participants from ca. 12 countries attended each course. Distinctive features of these courses were: top-notch scientists, mainly from Europe and the United States, were invited as guest speakers; two days of hands-on lab sessions on advanced laboratory techniques were organized for a limited number of participants (ca. 20); the targeted audience were PhD students and post-Docs; posters presented by students were discussed in detail with faculty members, who stayed for the first three days.

A relaxing atmosphere and a (usually…) nice weather also helped in making these courses a success.
