8th ENII Summer School in Advanced Immunology 2013

This Spring/Summer School is designed for PhD students and early post docs who already have a basic knowledge of immunology.

The six-day course is a combination of lectures from the guest faculty, which are then followed up with smaller tutorial sessions to allow greater interaction and time for addressing the current issues of the topic. Poster sessions are an integral part of the school and take place after dinner for 4 nights at which time the faculty and students mingle and discuss the students' works. In addition, 20% of the students are selected to give brief oral presentations in the main auditorium - this is an excellent opportunity for students to practice their presentation skills and prepare to answer questions from their peers and the faculty. Student presentation prizes will be awarded to the top posters or oral presentations at the end of the week.
