The Research Camp will gather a selected group of world leading experts in immunology, microbiology, virology, genetics and modeling, coming from the Principal Investigators behind the Healthy Human Global project as well as from the future potential partners of the project.
The Healthy Human Global (HHG) project aims at the deep phenotyping of the world’s population. The HHG project is a globalization of the Milieu Interieur project coordinated by Institut Pasteur in Paris. The HHG projects aims at understanding the global variation of a normal immune response and an understanding of the interaction with different pathogens.
The MISP 2015 will kick-start and boost the modeling and data analysis needed to fulfill the ambitious goals of the HHG project. MISP2015 brings together cutting edge researchers that together will work on unique data generated within the Milieu Interieur Project as well as different new virus evolution data with the aim of producing valuable resource knowledge for the entire community. All outcomes will be openly disseminated and published.
Several Data Challenges will be presented during the Keynotes on the 14th by renown principal investigators (announcement soon). The aim is to put together modelers and experimentalist to work on the challenge and try to come up with a solution. This work will be expanded in the future with the possibility of generating publications from the MISP 2015.
Participants to the Research Camp will select what challenges to tackle and they will have two days (15-16th) to work on the data. We will make use of Synapse to coordinate all work, and we will have a brainstorming session at the end of each day.
On the last day (17th), each group will present to the whole camp their work and possible solutions and ideas.
The MISP talks will be a separate session on December 18th, in which some of the world leading experts attending the Camp will present the current State-of-the-art in their field of expertise and where are we heading. These talks will be very didactic and will make us dream on the future of Science and the new technologies.
These talks are open to all, scientists and general public, in Sala Verdi, Montevideo.
