An International group of experts will present the latest findings on interorgan crosstalk between the nervous system, immune system, kidney, lung, heart, gut, liver, fat, bone, blood and bone marrow.  The effects of the microbiome, metabolome and host-pathogen interactions will also be discussed.  A “unifying theme” of the course will be local and systemic immune responses to injury and infection.  Applicants are invited to share their scientific results/projects at the event as a poster by submitting an abstract with their application.

The nine-day workshop features 15 speakers and includes lectures, tutorials, poster sessions, and short talks from selected abstracts.  Small, group dinners with the course faculty (Dine with the PI), are a popular feature of the workshop.  The stimulating atmosphere of the course encourages interaction between participants and speakers and provides a unique training and networking opportunity. 

A limited number of travel grants are available.
