Students chosen for the course

The Advanced School on Biochemistry of Biofuels is a new, intensive course of 6 days (Sept. 26 – Oct 3, 2010) aimed at creating competence and stimulating new ideas for biochemical, genetic and  physiological approaches to biofuels among young researchers who wish to begin careers in biofuels, or who are already pursuing projects in this area. It is jointly sponsored by the American, International and Brazilian Societies for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB, IUBMB and SBBq).

Applications will be accepted from 40 advanced PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and young researchers no more than 5 years past the PhD degree, working in any geographic region. Following selection by the International Advisory Committee , successful candidates will be allowed to register and will receive a stipend for travel and housing. An online application form can be found here .

The course consists of 27 lectures (introductory as well as state-of-the-art), afternoon discussion groups built around project proposals and ongoing student projects, and four evening lectures on the impact of biofuel production in the developing world. Students will have ample time for informal contacts aimed at establishing new collaborations and receiving advice on research strategy and career development. An outline of the program can be found here .

Lectures and discussion groups will be conducted by experts in the area of biofuels who are active researchers in Sugar metabolism and photosynthesis, Cell wall biosynthesis and Synthetic biology. Confirmed lecturers for this part of the course are listed here
