Fiocruz News Agency


On July 8, Fiocruz welcomed a delegation from the University of Lille, France, with the goal of strengthening cooperation between the two institutions. Professor Didier Gosset, ambassador of the university and advisor to the presidency, and the director of International Development, Joseph Armando Soba, were received by members of the Vice-Presidency of Education, Information and Communication (VPEIC) and of the Fiocruz Global Health Center (Cris/Fiocruz).

The visit was scheduled at the request of representatives of the university, who came to Brazil to map possible collaborations. The former president of the School of Medicine, Didier Gosset, presented more details about the institution. Created in the 16th century, the University of Lille has almost 80,000 students, of which about 10,000 are foreigners, and maintains a strong collaboration with the Pasteur Institute.

For the VPEIC’s Assistant Coordinator of International Education, Vinicius Cotta, possible areas of collaboration could be precision medicine in diabetes, causes of inequities in health, proteomics and genomics, among others. Cotta also raised the possibility of joint courses.

The meeting was also attended by the VPEIC’s Vice-Dean of Education, Cristina Guilam; VPEIC’s Advisor for International Education, Analice Braga; and CRIS researchers Ana Helena Freire, Flora Souza, and Ilka Vilardo.
