São Paulo Advanced Science School on Epidemic Preparedness

The School aims to contribute to the formation of interdisciplinary dialogues based on some structuring pillars: mathematical and statistical modeling, genomics, epidemiological surveillance and public health policies, also adding immunological/biological basis and dialogue with society. The school proposes a set of mini-courses of researchers highlighted in these areas, always in view of the question of the response to epidemiological emergencies.

There will also be hands-on work for multidisciplinary groups simulating situation rooms and field visits. Much of the afternoon time will be dedicated to these activities, which will be assisted by monitors.

Students and young doctors from a variety of fields are invited to apply: epidemiology, applied mathematics, physics and statistics, genomics, political and social sciences, immunology, collective health, ecology. Students from other areas who focus on tackling epidemics are also welcome.

Students from all regions of the world can apply. There is no registration fee and those accepted will have coverage of accommodation, food and transportation expenses. The number of vacancies is 100.
