The workshop organizing committee has selected three themes of debate introduced by keynote lectures in the morning followed by open collaborative workshops in the afternoon on: Ecology and evolution concepts for disease understanding and prevention", "Microbiome, Health and Eukaryote development" and "Reglementary and ethical pitfalls in science and health projects.

This one-day workshop shall indeed promote the idea that the recognised skill in public health of the University of Lyon will gain an original and fruitful dimension by integrating the excellent ecology, development and evolution approaches of the Lyon - Saint-Etienne site in its research and formation offers. This idea is within the frame of the One Health initiative that has been defined as "the collaborative effort of multiple disciplines to attain optimal health for people, animals and the environment". This implies that researchers from all fields of Life Sciences even those that may look to be far remote from current medical practices should be mobilized to promote the Hippocratic and still modern concept that public health depend on a clean environment.

All welcome!

Registration is free, obligatory and open to all. Lunch will be offered to all participants.

NB: it is possible to attend the morning keynote lectures without participating to the afternoon workshops.
