This initiative has been very successful in the last 8 years and students really appreciated. The candidates should have sufficient scientific background and comprehension of English to benefit maximally from the Advanced Course. Prominent speakers will lecture on topics in cellular and molecular immunology, including innate immunity, B & T cells, and cytokines. Special sessions will cover new advances in clinical immunology and the molecular and genetic basis of immune-mediated diseases. There will be ample opportunity for attendees to interact with the faculty inside and outside the lecture room. The target audience includes clinical fellows in disciplines related to immunology (such as rheumatology, allergy, infectious disease, oncology and transplantation) and graduate students and fellows doing basic research with an emphasis on human disease.
