6th Black Sea International Immunology School (BSIIS2019)

Dear friends and colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 6th 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 from 2015 through 2018, thanks to the financial support of EFIS-EEJI.

The 6th Black Sea International Immunology School will be entitled “The Game of Immunity: the players and the observers“, and will cover some hot topics in the fields of immunology. As we are addressing “beginners”, complicated concepts will be made clear, and sophisticated approaches will be presented at the friendly level. The program will include lectures and students’ short presentation modules. The school is addressed to participants with no or minimum 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 to apply. BSIIS2019 will take place from 25 to 27 October 2019  in Teteven, Bulgaria. We will provide a relaxed venue for learning, scientific exchange, and networking.

There is no fee for attendance and the organizing committee offers fellowships that will cover accommodation costs. Note that the number of participants is limited! Please, send your application to immunology2014bg@gmail.com! The deadline for applications is 30 August 2019.

We encourage you to apply for the school! We look forward to meeting you in Teteven.
