Advanced Course in Immunology

This intensive course is directed toward advanced trainees and scientists who wish to expand or update their understanding of immunology. Leading experts will present recent advances in the biology of the immune system and address its role in health and disease. This is not an introductory course; attendees will need to have a firm understanding of the principles of immunology.
