Unleash iMM’s research excellence in immunity and infection through twinning to infect Lisbon and Portugal with its increase in competitiveness and innovation

Spring School 2018

19 March 2018, Instituto Medicina Molecular, Lisbon, Portugal

20-22 March 2018, Sesimbra, Portugal

The TwinnToInfect Spring School on Infection and Immunity will take place in a coastal-town near Lisbon (Sesimbra) on 19-22nd March 2018 http://www.hoteldomar.pt/c_index.php This school is designed for PhD students and early post-docs who already have some knowledge of immunology and/or infection biology. The four-day course will combine lectures from invited speakers and oral presentations by attendants, with plenty of time for discussion (see programme). Poster sessions are an integral part of the school, in which the faculty and students/post-docs will mingle and actively discuss their work. This is a great opportunity to enhance scientific exchanges and promote networking! Of note, there will also be a visit to iMM (https://imm.medicina.ulisboa.pt/en/), which will include short presentations from our research groups working on Infection and Immunity.
