Co-organized by Drs. Carla Saleh, PhD, and Nevan Krogan, PhD, the Institut Pasteur and the Quantitative Biosciences Institute present the IP-QBI Mini Symposium on Infectious Disease in San Francisco on February 28, 2023.

The Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) seeks transformative results in biomedicine by supporting fundamental quantitative research in the biological sciences. The Institut Pasteur thrive to increase its global health impact through strengthening of fundamental biomedical research activities and their translation into biomedical innovations and technologies. The Quantitative Biology program of the Institut Pasteur intends to facilitate research innovation at the interface of infectious biology and quantitative sciences.

The 2023 IP-QBI Symposium aims to further collaborative relationships between scientists from both institutions. The Institut Pasteur and QBI signed an official agreement to kick off a formal collaboration which will develop a joint Center on Emerging Infectious Disease based at UCSF. To strengthen the agreement and the collaborations among scientists, a small delegation of group leaders from the Institut Pasteur will be visiting San Francisco from February 28th to March 2nd. Through this agreement, scientists will work together to identify opportunities to promote cooperative biosciences research and training activities.
