Infection & Immunity Short Course - Spring 2020

PLEASE NOTE: The course will take place later in the year due to the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Updates will posted here. 

The Infection and Immunity short course is one of the core courses of the “RNA & Infection” graduate program and seeks to provide a foundation for investigating infection biology and immunity. It is complementary to the short course on “RNA Biology” which will take place in fall 2020.

The current course will span five days and will expose students to the fundamentals of infection research, ranging from the different classes of pathogens, to host immunity, and anti-infective therapeutic strategies, as well as the phylogeny and epidemiology of infectious diseases. As part of the course, students will also learn about modern techniques used to probe different aspects of infection biology as well as open research questions within each area. The course will be taught in English by a team of group leaders with in-depth expertise on each topic.
