Dear friends and colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 4th Black Sea International Immunology School (BSIIS).

The Black Sea International Immunology School (BSIIS) is an educational initiative of BuSI, that was given a successful start in 2014 and continued through 2015 and 2016, thanks to the financial support of EFIS-EEJI.

The 4th Black Sea International Immunology School will be entitled Stimulation vs. Suppression and will cover some hot topics in the fields of immunology. As we are addressing “beginners”, complicated concepts will be made clearer and sophisticated approaches will be presented at a friendly level. The program will include theoretical (lectures), practical (seminars) modules and a students’ short presentation session. The school will be limited to 20 participants with minimum or no past experience in the covered areas. Undergraduate, master, PhD students and post-docs are welcome.

The selection will be based on applications including a CV and a 250-words abstract on the applicant’s current/future project. Participants from the neighboring countries will be strongly encouraged. BSIIS 2017, will take place in Starosel, Hissar – district of Plovdiv, from 20 to 22 October 2017, in the conference hall of Starosel Hotel. We shall provide a relaxed venue for useful learning, scientific exchange, and networking. All participation fees as well as the accommodation of participants will be covered by the organizers.

We encourage you to apply for the course! We look forward to meeting you in Starosel.
