Pangyo, Gyeonggi, 29 Feb, 2016| Institut Pasteur Korea (IPK, CEO: Dr. Hakim Djaballah) is pleased to announce recruitment for the 2016 High Content Assay (HCA) course, a technical training program for scientific professionals who are interested in or are already working with RNAi technology.  The free five day course will take place from May 9th to 13th at IPK, located in Pangyo, Gyeonggi-do.
The curriculum is focused on cell-based assay development and large RNAi screening data analysis. In addition to being a positive continuing education program, HCA also encourages development and expansion of professional networks.  A maximum of 20 candidates will be selected for the program, split 50/50 between Korean researchers and international researchers from the Institut Pasteur International Network.  IPK’s 2015 sessions attracted talented scientists from as far away as France, US, China, and Vietnam.
