We are looking for up to 15 highly motivated individuals who have obtained a BSc by the time of enrolment. Our broad English-language curriculum includes lectures and seminars in the life sciences and extensive hands-on training in brand new molecular biology and bioinformatics teaching laboratories.
In the first year we offer a curriculum of advanced lecture courses and seminars while students identify their research topics. During the second year of the program, students complete individual research projects leading to a master thesis under the supervision of Skoltech faculty from the Skoltech Center of Research, Education and Innovation in Data-Intensive Biomedicine and Biotechnology.

Graduates of the program will obtain a unique skill set that will enable them to excel in research and innovation in academia or industry. Exceptional students have the opportunity to enter the Skoltech Ph.D. program. Visit our website for more information - http://www.skoltech.ru/en/admissions/msc-p...and-technology/

Attached Imageimage001.pngDear ALL,

We are proud to invite you to Skoltech Colloquium!

Guest Speaker: Anton Berns, Ph.D Professor, Skoltech Centre for Stem Cell Research, Moscow & The Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam.

When: October 31; 4:00pm


Where: Institute of Gene Biology RAS, ul. Vavilova 34/5, Conference room, 1st floor.


What: Mouse models of cancer: cells-of-origin of small cell and non-small cell lung cancer.

Abstract: Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is one of the most lethal human malignancies, due to its high metastatic potential and chemo-resistance upon relapse. Using the Rbf/f;p53f/f mouse model for SCLC, we found that the tumors are often composed of phenotypically different cells, characterized by mesenchymal and neuroendocrine markers. These cells often share a common origin. Crosstalk between these cells can endow the neuroendocrine component with metastatic capacity, illustrating the potential relevance of tumor cell heterogeneity in dictating functional tumor properties. Also specific genetic lesions appear to be associated with metastatic potential. Interestingly, the two cell types can also interconvert raising the question of their cell-of-origin. To investigate this in more detail, we inactivated Trp53 and Rb1 in distinct cell types in the adult lung by targeting Cre-recombinase expression to Clara, neuroendocrine, and alveolar type II cells using adenoviral vectors. We could show that neuroendocrine cells serve as the predominant although not the exclusive cell of origin of SCLC.

In contrast, mutant Kras-driven adenocarcinomas (one of the NSCLC subtypes) originates primarily from alveolar type II cells. However, in LSL-mutant-Kras;p53flox/flox mice also other cell types gave effectively rise to adenomas and adenocarcinomas. Our data indicate that both cell type specific features and the nature of the oncogenic lesion(s) are critical factors in determining the tumor initiating capacity of lung (progenitor) cells. Furthermore, the cell-of-origin appears to influence the properties of the resulting tumors.

Attached Imageimage002.pngDear ALL,


We are proud to invite you to Skoltech Colloquium!

Guest Speaker: Alexander B. Chetverin.

He received his Master, Ph.D., and D.Sc. degrees in molecular biology from the Lomonosov Moscow State University. From 1990 to 1992, he has been a Visiting Investigator at the Public Health Research Institute, New York. In 1997, he was elected Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. He invented the method of molecular colonies in collaboration with his wife Helena V. Chetverina in late eighties.


When: October 17; 4:00pm

Where: Moscow, Institute of Gene Biology RAS, ul. Vavilova 34/5, Conference room, 1st floor.


What: Early and reliable diagnosis of deadly diseases with molecular colonies

Abstract: Many deadly diseases, such as AIDS, cancer, and tuberculosis, are accompanied by the appearance in the patients body of particular nucleic acid (DNA or RNA) molecules that can serve as molecular diagnostic markers. The earlier a marker is revealed, the higher are the patients chances for survival and the easier can the disease be prevented from spreading. Detecting small amounts of DNA or RNA molecules is only possible after amplifying them, usually by PCR (polymerase chain reaction). However, due to limited amplification specificity, the sensitivity of even the most advanced assays is still insufficient for timely diagnosis, with the rate of false-positive and false-negative results being too high.
The problem can be overcome by carrying out the amplification reaction in a gel film, rather than in a test tube. In this format, the amplification products become entrapped in the gel matrix and accumulate around the progenitor molecule, resulting in a 2-D pattern of molecular colonies. Each colony comprises a molecular clone, the progeny of a single starting DNA or RNA template. This provides for the detection, enumeration, and analysis of single molecules present in the analyzed sample. The molecular colony format eliminates the competition from concurrently amplifying non-target nucleic acids and makes the assay digital, as the signal from a colony only needs to be detected without measuring its intensity. This greatly increases the reliability of diagnostics and permits the titer of a molecular marker to be directly determined by counting the number of specific colonies.

Dear colleagues!
IVM Symposium is the worlds only event dedicated solely to in vivo two-photon (multiphoton) imaging, a revolutionary technique that combines high resolution (in the nanometer scale) with high relevance that comes from imaging inside the living organisms.
Last years event received raving reviews. We shall keep the old format combining lectures, practical training and a small exhibition. This years impressive line-up of new speakers includes:
Alberto Diaspro Italian Institute of Technology/University of Genoa
Olga Garaschuk University of Tuebengen, Germany
Elizabeth Hillman Columbia University, New York, USA
Mark Huebener Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, Germany
Chester Mathis University of Pittsburgh, USA

For more information on the speakers, the latest program and registration: http://www.neurotar.com/ivm2013/program-2013/

A practical training workshop on in vivo microscopy for a limited number of students will be organized after the symposium, on May 29, 2013 at the University of Helsinki.

Main program will be preceded by a half-day module on human skin imaging (27.5.) and followed by a half-day module on data analysis (29.5.)

Registration deadline - 1th of May

1000 genomes on Amazon's cloud

The world's largest data set on human genetic variation, the 1000 Genomes Project, is now available for free through Amazon Web Services. The arrangement with Amazon, spearheaded through the US National Institutes of Health, makes data from sequencing the genomes of more than 1,700 people accessible through Amazon's cloud. Any scientist with an internet connection will be able to access all 200 terabytes of the data set in the cloud, avoiding the need to acquire additional bandwidth or data storage capacity. It's a very large amount of data, says William Spooner, chief technology officer at Cambridge, UKbased Eagle Genomics, which provides bioinformatics services for mining genomics data.

The European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) invites entries for its 6th Award for Communication in the Life Sciences.

The EMBO Award for Communication in the Life Sciences is presented annually to a practising life scientist in Europe who has made significant contributions to public understanding of science. Launched in 2002, the award highlights the exceptional efforts made by many scientists to combine science communication activities with a full-time research career. The prize consists of a personal award of 5, 000 Euro and a silver and gold medal.
Winners of the EMBO Communication Award are also nominated by EMBO for the European Commission's Descartes Prize for Science Communication.

We would like to invite interested scientists to apply or to inform other scientists who might be potential candidates for the award. Candidates should apply using the official entry form by 30 JUNE 2007. The conditions and application forms are available on the EMBO website at:
http://www.embo.org/awards/entries.html

Last year's winner was Armand Marie Leroi of Imperial College London. For more information please see: http://www.embo.org/awards/communications.html
