2017 Summer School GenopoleGenopole held its first Summer School (July 4-7) that focuses on “Bioinformatics and Biostatistical Tools in Medical Genomics”.
The 14 speakers and instructors of this first edition came from eight different European and US research institutes and universities.
The 4-day program was structured around seminars and roundtables pertaining to medical genomics and metagenomics, as well as around practical work sessions on methods in bioinformatics and biostatistics. Participants included research scientists as well as clinicians.

The roundtable closing the Summer School addressed questions relating to ethics and big data in healthcare with a focus on the French national personalized medicine program (called France Médecine Génomique 2025).
2017 Summer School - Round Table
The Summer School took place in Châteauform des Berges de Seine. This is a very cozy green campus located on the banks of the River Seine, also most conducive to friendly exchanges and interactions between speakers, instructors and participants. Participants also enjoyed a Karaoke evening and could benefit from the excellent sports facilities on the campus.

The Scientific Committee of Genopole’s Summer School is already preparing next year’s program.
In 2018, we hope to have representatives from different national initiatives in precision and personalized medicine on the program.

Registration to the Summer School is limited to 20 participants.
