INFOS     (4th Autumn School · Bad Schandau · September 30 - October 5, 2012)

About the Autumn School

The Autumn School "Current Concepts in Immunology (CCII)" will be a journey through the immune system for beginners (master, diploma, 1st year PhD and MD doctoral students) with lectures and short presentations from an internationally recognized faculty, student presentations and interactive discussion.

Applications are accepted primarily from students (master, diploma, 1st year PhD and MD doctoral students)working in laboratories in Germany. Moe adavanced students are refrred to the Ettal Spring School of Immunology. However, some spaces will be reserved for students working in a lab outside of Germany. We will also consider a limited number of applications from those that work in companies or hold a doctoral degree but must refresh their immunological background.

The Autumn School is part of the newly founded Academy of Immunology within the German Society of Immunology (DGfI) and, together with the Ettal Spring School of Immunology and the Schwielow School of Translational Immunology, constitutes the current educational resources of the DGfI.

For more information about the German Society of Immunology please visit the DGfI homepage.
