Ettal, Bavaria, Germany
Every year in spring the German Society for Immunology (DGfI) hosts the ‘Spring School on
Immunology’ in Ettal, Bavaria. In the intimate setting of an old cloister, 60 doctoral students and 25
lecturers, experts in their field, come together to discuss the latest developments in Immunology.
This School is part of the DGfI´s Academy for Immunology and offers advanced training for students
who already have good knowledge of Immunology. The School thus primarily addresses doctoral
students in the later stages of their PhD training as well as recent Postdocs.
The School is based on plenary lectures reviewing the themes of the School while also offering ample
time for discussions. Because of the active participation in the sessions and the intense exchange, the
students will have excellent opportunities for networking early on in their career
Cutting Edge: Basics & Perspectives
Through joint sponsorship by IUIS and the German Society for Immunology 2 full scholarships are
offered for this school for applicants from low to middle-income countries who are studying/working
in these countries.
The stipend covers:
Travel costs of up to 1.100 EUR (covered by the IUIS)
Registration and accommodation for the duration of the school (covered by the DGfI)

teachers of Immunology and leaders in their field in their home country.
