The program features 12 speakers of eminence known for their ability to cover basic and clinical science. Lectures will focus on major topics in cellular and molecular immunology, including innate immunity, B cells, T cells, dendritic cells, cytokines, and mucosal immunity. In the second half of the program, lectures will cover autoimmune, allergic and immunodeficiency diseases, as well as new advance in interventional and clinical immunology. The full program and speaker listing are now available on the course webpage and features a link to the faculty biographies.

There will be ample opportunity for attendees to interact with the faculty inside and outside the lecture rooms. The target audience includes clinical fellows in disciplines related to immunology (such as rheumatology, allergy, infectious disease, oncology and transplantation) and graduate students and fellows doing basic research with emphasis on human disease.
