Application Deadline: 31st October 2018
Eligible Countries: Developing Countries

About the Award: Every year in spring the German Society for Immunology (DGfI) hosts the ‘Spring School on
Immunology’ in Ettal, Bavaria. In the intimate setting of an old cloister, 60 doctoral students and 25 lecturers, experts in their field, come together to discuss the latest developments in Immunology.
This School is part of the DGfI´s Academy for Immunology and offers advanced training for students who already have good knowledge of Immunology. The School thus primarily addresses doctoral students in the later stages of their PhD training as well as recent Postdocs.
The School is based on plenary lectures reviewing the themes of the School while also offering ample time for discussions. Because of the active participation in the sessions and the intense exchange, the students will have excellent opportunities for networking early on in their career (https://dgfi.org/akademie-fuer-immunologie/spring-school/).
