ESU Course and Workshops

ESU-ESUR course on How to write a paper/grant

Course director
B. Somani, Southampton, GB

Thursday, 13 October, 9:30 – 10:30

Aims and objectives
The course will help with the basics of writing a paper and grant proposal. At the end of this course participants should have a good understanding of:

  • Planning and execution of a research project
  • Making the paper publishable and impactful
  • Grant funding, hurdles and setting up a trial

Workshop I: Single-cell RNA sequencing-technical workshop

Workshop director
S. Salcher, Innsbruck, AT

Thursday, 13 October, 10:45 – 12:45

Aims and objectives

  • The single-cell sequencing workflow – tissue dissociation as critical step
  • Droplet-based versus microwell-based single-cell sequencing platforms – pros and cons (experimental comparison using prostate cancer tissue)
  • How to perform single-cell sequencing of cells with low transcript count (e.g. neutrophils)
  • Single-cell sequencing data analysis – cutting-edge computational tools
  • Exploring scRNAseq data interactively with web-based tools (cellXgene)

Practical information

  • Meet at 10:30am next to the registration desk. The laboratory can only be accessed with an authorised person and is situated in a different area. This workshop is only for people who are registered. It is fully booked, but if you are not registered and would like to attend, please inform us at the registration desk or via email and we will add you to the waiting list.

Workshop II: Recent scientific developments in penile cancer in connection with clinical pathology research

Workshop directors
Clinician : R. Pichler, Innsbruck, AT
Biologist : S. Lohse, Homburg, DE
Pathologist : M. Fiorentino, Bologna, IT

Thursday, 13 October, 10:45 – 12:45

Aims and objectives

Penile cancer is a rare tumor disease and therefore, therapeutic management is still a challenge especially for aggressive cancer. Currently, prognostic markers are missing for individual treatment decision. In addition, new therapeutic strategies have to be developed to improve outcome in advanced and metastatic stages. Therefore, the understanding of the biological and molecular background is essential. About 50% of penile cancer is caused by HPV infection that is associated with distinct histological subtypes.

This workshop will give an overview on the clinical tasks, the histological as well as molecular background including HPV-induced tumorigenesis in general and in the result, can find out the current tasks in both clinical and basic research.

The congress has taken place.
