IUIS-DGfI stipends Spring School 2017

October 27, 2016


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.

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.

Topics:

  • Innate Immunity
  • Adaptive Immunity
  • Cutting Edge: Basics & Perspectives
  • Tumor/Allergy/Autoimmunity
  • Infection/Vaccination
  • Career Planning/Publishing

We are pleased to announce that – through joint sponsorship by IUIS and the German Society for Immunology – 3 full scholarships will be offered for this School for applicants from developing countries and studying/working in these countries.

The stipend covers:
Travel costs of up to 2000 USD (covered by the IUIS) Registration and accommodation for the duration of the school (covered by the DGfI) Any other expenses will be the responsibility of the student.

To qualify: the students must show signs of future leadership. Our mission is to identify tomorrow´s teachers of Immunology and leaders in their field in their home country.
