Advanced Course in Basic & Clinical Immunology

February 19-22, 2017 | Scottsdale, Arizona, USA

Students in this course include clinical fellows, trainees in the pharmaceutical industry, and practicing academic physicians who find the need to enhance their understanding of immunology. Invited speakers lecture on the major topics in cellular and molecular immunology, including innate immunity, B cells, T cells, and cytokines. Special sessions cover new advances in interventional clinical immunology and the molecular and genetic basis of immunologically-mediated diseases. There will be ample opportunity for students to interact with the faculty outside the lecture room. The course provides a syllabus, course book and access to online lecture materials.


Courses Held Before FOCIS 2017

Basic Immunology in Medicine: Update 2017
Tuesday, June 13, 2017 | Hilton Chicago

A day-long course aimed at practicing clinicians, trainees, and individuals in biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies who are involved in the development of therapies for immunological diseases. The purpose of the course is to review selected topics in basic immunology, with emphasis on recent advances and issues that are relevant to the pathogenesis and treatment of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases. 

Computational Immunology
Tuesday, June 13, 2017 | Hilton Chicago

A day-long course is aimed at scientists involved or interested in the use of multi-dimensional data generated by modern genomics and proteomics technologies such as mass/flow cytometry, next-generation sequencing and microarrays and that feel a need to get a better basic understanding of modern statistical and mathematical concepts necessary for their analysis and interpretation.

New! Cancer Immunity & Immunotherapy
Wednesday, June 14, 2017 | Hilton Chicago

The day-long course will review the scientific basis and current practices of cancer immunotherapy, with emphasis on principles, recent advances as well as prospects, limitations, and future scientific needs. The course is designed for translational researchers and scientists, practicing clinicians, trainees, and individuals in biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies who are involved in or wish to learn more about immuno-oncology and the development of immunotherapies for cancer. The course will be held in collaboration with the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 in Chicago.


FOCIS 2017
Annual Meeting of the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS)
June 14-17, 2017 | Hilton Chicago
Abstract submission deadline | January 25, 2017

FOCIS is the meeting in translational immunology that will give you a competitive edge in your career. Stay ahead of the curve with leading clinicians and researchers delivering the latest breakthroughs across immune-mediated diseases. Focusing on molecular pathways and their implications in human disease provides the unique opportunity for innovative thinking and apply ideas from the pathologies of other diseases to uncover novel solutions to challenges in the diseases you study.
