Concept of the School

The primary aim of this summer school is to teach immunology to young investigators in immunology from South-East Europe, i.e. Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Romania. Some countries of this region still need help to establish a state-of-the-art immunology.

The topic of the school is "Concepts in Immunology". Lectures will deal with current concepts in immunology that are of special importance for basic but also for clinical immunology. The last school has shown that many participants have a medical background. Also controversially discussed topics will be presented. To provide an optimal discussion the participants will form small working groups according to their knowledge and interests that will be guided by the speakers. Methodological aspects will also be discussed, and a practical microscopy course will be organized by Euroimmun, Luebeck, Germany. Presentation of the work of the young investigators themselves in a special workshop is an important part of the school.

Five previous EJI-EFIS immunology schools were held in Macedonia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and in Bulgaria. They got a very positive feedback from the participants.
