8th EFIS-EJI South East European Immunology School (SEEIS2016) - Application deadline: 10 July 2016

Event date
October 14-17, 2016
Hotel Bleart, Durres
Short description

The primary aim of this summer school is to teach immunology to young investigators in immunology from South-East Europe, i.e. Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Romania. Some countries of this region still need help to establish a state-of-the-art immunology.


The topic of the school is "Concepts in Immunology". Lectures will deal with current concepts in immunology that are of special importance for basic but also for clinical immunology. The last school has shown that many participants have a medical background. Also controversially discussed topics will be presented. To provide an optimal discussion the participants will form small working groups according to their knowledge and interests that will be guided by the speakers. Methodological aspects will also be discussed. We will provide a practical microscopy course organized by Euroimmun, Luebeck, Germany, and a flow cytometry course organised by BectonDickinson, Heidelberg. Presentation of the work of the young investigators themselves in a special workshop is an important part of the school.


  • Models of autoimmunity
  • B cells in autoimmunity
  • Autoantibodies in human diseases
  • Practical flow cytometry
  • T cell costimulation
  • Immunology of infection
  • Cytokines in immunopathology and therapy
  • Unconventional T cells

Six previous EJI-EFIS immunology schools were held in Macedonia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria and Romania. They got a very positive feedback from the participants.

The school will consist of lectures and practical training in fluorescence microscopy for autoantibody detection (provided by Euroimmun) and in flow cytometry with an Accuri flow cytometer (provided by Becton Dickinson).

Rooms will be shared by 2 participants.
