Started on 1 January 2017, the INCEPTION project (Convergence Institute for the Emergence of Pathologies through Individuals and PopulatiONs) has launched several calls for projects to support interdisciplinary research projects.
Headed by the Institut Pasteur and co-directed by Olivier Gascuel, head of C3BI, and Thomas Bourgeron, head of the unit of Human Genetics and Cognitive Functions, this project fits into the context of biological big data around four axes of research:
Methods for integrative biology
Emergence of diseases through population
Emergence of diseases within individuals
Social science, emergence of diseases and prevention
In this context, the INCEPTION project aims to establish synergies between different areas of expertise (biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics and social sciences) to develop innovative solutions around the emergence of diseases, both at the level of populations and individuals.
The annual meeting of the INCEPTION project, proposing several scientific presentations and the description of the first supported actions, will take place on Thursday, November 08, 2018, from 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm at the Auditorium of the Center François Jacob.
