CIVIS announces the opening of the registration for the CIVIS webinar “A new approach in understanding autoimmune diseases”, that will take place on January 13, 2022, starting with 2 pm (CET).
The primary target of the webinar is to educate students on common autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases in a new and exciting way. Starting from an interesting patient case presentation, teachers are going to dive into the phenotype of each disease along with the mechanisms responsible for the generation of the autoimmune responses. Each complicated pathophysiologic pathway will be accompanied by a relevant real-life patient case report, creating an open and circular lane between caring for patients at the bedside and creating scientific advancements at the bench.
This CIVIS course is open to Bachelor’s, Master and PhD CIVIS students interested in autoimmunity. A B2 level of English is also required.
Interested students should send an e-mail with a short motivational letter and a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org until January 13, 2022.
