FOCIS 2019: June 18-21, Boston.

FOCIS (Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies)   17-10-2018   http://www.focisnet.org/meetings/focis-2019/about/    

 

FOCIS is THE meeting in translational immunology!

FOCIS is a key forum where opinion leaders who are developing and applying novel concepts come together to chart the path to the next major breakthrough in disease therapy.

Through the FOCIS Annual Meeting, researchers and clinicians share knowledge across traditional disease borders, and identify commonalities between treatments and therapies that are life changing for those affected with immune-mediated diseases.

Advanced Course in Basic & Clinical Immunology (3-6 march 2019, La Jolla, California)

FOCIS (Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies)   17-09-2018   https://bit.ly/2Ow1C2L    

 

Our most popular course covers the major topics in cellular and molecular immunology, including innate immunity, B cells, T cells, dendritic cells, cytokines and mucosal immunity. Other lectures cover autoimmune, allergic and immunodeficiency diseases, as well as new advances in interventional and clinical immunology and the molecular and genetic basis of immunologically-mediated diseases.

All lecturers encourage interaction with the students through questions and discussions during lecture time. There is also ample opportunity for students to interact with the faculty outside the lecture room.

FOCIS supports the Master of Medical Sciences in Immunology Program at Harvard Medical School

FOCIS (Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies)   19-01-2018   http://mmscimmunology.hms.harvard.edu    

 

The mission of the HMS Master of Medical Sciences in Immunology (MMSc IMM) is to provide a solid, instructional and research-based foundation in both Basic and Clinical Immunology. Courses will start with the fundamentals and rapidly progress to cutting-edge knowledge, all taught by world-renowned faculty members in the Program in Immunology at Harvard. This program serves the needs both of students with a strong undergraduate biology background with an interest in medicine or fundamental research and seeking deeper knowledge of immunology, as well as of academic physicians from a range of specialties who seek an in-depth knowledge of immunology in order to further their professional goals and research expertise.

Prague Focis Course: EUROPEAN ADVANCED COURSE IN BASIC AND CLINICAL IMMUNOLOGY (October 16-18, 2017).

FOCIS   03-09-2017   http://www.focisnet.org/2013-03-07-14-02-26/european-advanced-course#    

 

After the successful 1st European FOCIS Advanced Course in Basic and Clinical Immunology organized by the French FCE director Ignacio Anegon in Paris last year, it is a great honor for me to be charged by the organization of the 2nd FOCIS course which will be held in Prague, October 16-18, 2017.

Each year, more than 100 international colleagues attend and experience the FOCIS course's rich programme. The main aim of the Prague course is to train specialists in the field of immunology. We believe that developing the knowledge of both current and future specialists in the field can also benefit many companies in the sector. Courses are attended by young physicians, researchers and laboratory workers.

Outstanding speakers already confirmed their participation (see the promo flyer attached).

"Science Immunology", the new Journal of FOCIS.

Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS)   01-03-2017   http://www.focisnet.org/2013-03-07-14-22-38    

 

The New Journal of FOCIS is "Science Immunology", published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Science Immunology publishes original, peer-reviewed, science-based research articles that report critical advances in all areas of immunological research, including important new tools and techniques.

Immunology is in a period of unprecedented expansion and progress. The broad influence of the immune system on diverse aspects of health and disease is beginning to be appreciated, and innovative immunological interventions are proving successful in the clinic. New tools are revealing the extent of this influence with exceptional precision and reach. Science Immunology will provide a platform for the most exciting findings in this growing field.

FOCIS members receive complimentary access to the journal.
