EULAR Course on Immunology

The EULAR Course on Immunology is co-organised by EULAR and EMEUNET. This course focuses on both introductory lectures to Immunology and an update on the most recent concepts in adaptive and innate immunity and their relevance to rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases.
It embraces interactive learning and practical training, as reflected in the time dedicated for discussion and workshops. The main objectives of this course comprise increasing the awareness, knowledge and skills of young researchers in Immunology and stimulating critical thinking in the design, execution and interpretation of basic and translational research studies.

Individuals will have access to high quality, innovative instruction and coaching from an illustrious faculty from across Europe: Ursula Fearon, Mariola Kurowska-Stolarska, Vivianne Malmström, Xavier Mariette, René Toes and Vanja Sisirak.

"The course was a great opportunity to learn about hot topics in immunology in an interactive way, and to discuss our projects with supervisors and students, who provided very helpful comments. Moreover, we had the chance to visit the town of Lisbon and interact with international students from a lot of different countries. Overall, it was a great course!"  Pauline Henrot

"I am relatively new in the field of rheumatology. EULAR immunology course was a great opportunity to get introduction to the current topics in this field and to get connected with other young and senior scientists. The course was well-arranged, and as a result, I got new valuable connections to other researchers as well as ideas how to develop my own research project further."  Salla Kangas

"Participating in this first EULAR immunology course was a great experience. I could increase my knowledge in immunology within a very active group and prestigious faculty. It also gave me the opportunity to meet young colleagues from different countries and working in the same field." Marie Kostine

"Great talks by faculties about hot topics in immunology, with very intelligible presentations. Very interesting workshops, with important feedback on real/‘fake' scientific projects. Discussion can be helpful to everyone ! Great opportunity to meet other young clinical/scientific immunologists from all Europe. Lisbon : great city and great people!" Noémie Gensous
