MISP Interactions Research Camp 4-8 December
The Second International Modeling Immune System and Pathogen (MISP) Interactions Research Camp will be held in Comwell Borupgaard, Snekkersten, Denmark, from December 4th-8th, 2017  as part of a collaboration between Institute Pasteur and DNRF center of excellence PERSIMUNE, Rigshospitalet.

The research camp will be a multidisciplinary workshop involving attending physicians, basic researchers and data experts with the theme “The new horizon in Biomedicine”. During the five days of the workshop, participants will actively work on one of four pre-selected, formatted datasets to address research questions relevant to biomedicine and precision medicine. The workshop will be a unique opportunity to gain hands on experience in handling complex biological data under the tutorship of world-class experts on big data.  Participants will also take advantage of this international workshop to improve and extend networking opportunities in research. Furthermore, the work conduced at the MISP Camp may lead to publications in high impact journals.
