Upcoming Courses (Registration Open)
EUREKA Translational Medicine Summer School
To find out more about the summer school course programme, please click here.
The summer school course tackles the intrinsic difficulties of effective translational medicine in rare and orphan diseases and is designed for early career researchers with an interest in this field. With this summer school course, you will not only obtain insight into how science really works, but more importantly, you will acquire knowledge on how to be a successful translational researcher yourself. This course is specifically not about learning how to 'play the game', but about understanding that there is a game going on, what the rules of the game are and to be able to transcend it.
If you have any queries about the course itself, please contact EUREKA directly by emailing Erica Roks at University Medical Centre Utrecht: email@example.com.

Therapeutic Tolerance Workshop: First in-human data
In June 2017, Newcastle University hosted the fourth international workshop on Clinical Therapeutic Tolerance. These workshops take place every four years and focus on therapeutic tolerance ‘in the clinic’, across the fields of transplantation and autoimmunity. It is amazing how fast the field has progressed since our first workshop in 2005. In 2017, there were reports from some of the first concerted international efforts to switch off unwanted immune responses, as well as updates on the relevant science and, of course, our hallmark and light-hearted debates between international opinion leaders.
