The international video conference-based course on immunotherapy entitled “Immunological Biotherapies: Concepts and Development” was introduced last year (2015-2016).
Based on its success and the large turn out by graduate and master students, postdocs and clinical fellows, we are happy to offer this course again this year, with the following modules:
Module 1: Mechanisms of Action of Immunomodulatory Agents
Module 2: Cancer Immunotherapy
Module 3: Immunotherapy of Chronic Inflammation
Module 4: Vaccine Development in Infectious Diseases
The goal of this class is to provide students with the means to understand the relevance of immunology and immunotherapy strategies in the treatment of human disease. We have gathered an exceptional number of immunotherapy experts throughout the world to teach basic immunology principles and discuss the development and success of different immunotherapies in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, autoimmunity, cancer, and infectious diseases.
Lectures will be provided locally either in France (Sorbonne Universitթs, Paris), in Brazil (University of Sao Paulo) or New York (Mount Sinai) and transmitted live through a videoconference to all three locations. Students and lecturers will have the opportunity to discuss in an open forum.
The course is organized in 4 modules (3hrs/day; 6 to 9 hrs per module), and evaluation is based on attendance and participation (one credit given for two modules).
Semester Offered: Spring
