Canceled due to Coronavirus: Yerevan Spring School in Immunology (YSSI2020)
28th March – 1st April 2020 in Yerevan, Armenia
Funded by the Volkswagen-Foundation, a spring school for PhD students in immunology will be held in the beautiful city of Yerevan, Armenia. The 48 participants of the school will come from Armenia, Germany, and countries around Armenia.
The theme of the school is "The Immune System in Health and Disease". Lectures will deal with autoimmunity, infection, T cell stimulation and costimulation, innate immunity, allergy, immunodeficiency and others. Workshops in small groups will deal with flow cytometry and T cell and antibody methods. There will be ample time for discussions between students and faculty.
A group of international speakers (from Armenia, Austria, Georgia, Germany and the UK) will ensure a highly interactive, scientifically stimulating and intense conference program. They will highlight recent advances in inflammation research, T and B cell biology, immunogenetics and infection, autoimmunity, and updates on new technologies (flow cytometry).
Postgraduate students in immunology are invited to apply. Fellowships will cover costs for accommodation and subsistence as well as for most of the travel (flight ticket). See information.
All participants will present their work, thus abstract submission and poster presentation is required.
More details and application form on the website https://www.bnitm.de/YSSI2020/registration.htm
There is no fee for attendance and the organizing committee offers fellowships that will cover accommodation and most of the travel costs (an economy flight ticket).
We encourage PhD students from Germany, Armenia, Georgia, Iran, Russia and countries near Armenia to apply for the school where faculty and participants will have an opportunity of constant interaction and exchanges.
Please apply for participation!
Deadline for applications is 15th of November 2019, 23:59 h!
We look forward to meeting you in the beautiful city of Yerevan!
