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
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. We will provide a practical microscopy course
organized by Euroimmun, Luebeck, Germany, and a flow cytometry course
organised by BectonDickinson, Heidelberg. Presentation of the work of
the young investigators themselves in a special workshop is an important
part of the school.
Six previous EJI-EFIS immunology schools were held in Macedonia, Croatia,
Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria and Romania. They got a very
positive feedback from the participants.
