The Moroccan Society of Immunology is organizing the second regional North African Immunology Course (See www.smi.ma for course ad). The course will provide an interactive forum with international faculty, focusing on fundamental and clinical immunological aspects of Cancer and Inflammation. The course will also include sessions on career development and a practical session on flow cytometry. All participants will have free access to teaching material via the web-based Immunopaedia platform (http://www.immunopaedia.org.za/teaching-learning-tools/) 6 weeks ahead of the course, and are expected to have familiarized themselves with a good knowledge of basic and clinical immunology.
The registration fee is 250 EUR, to cover the course fees, lodging and food.
