Advanced Course in Basic and Clinical Immunology is organized by Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS) and would be held during Feb 18 - 21, 2018 at The Scott Resort & Spa (formerly FireSky Resort), Scottsdale, Arizona, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event for clinical fellows in disciplines related to immunology, including rheumatology, allergy, infectious disease, oncology and transplantation; fellows doing basic research with an emphasis on human disease; scientists or other research and development personnel from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies who are involved in developing new therapies for immunological disease; and academic or community physicians who wish to enhance their understanding of immunology.

Course Description:

The lectures cover the major topics in cellular and molecular immunology, including innate immunity, B cells, T cells, dendritic cells, cytokines and mucosal immunity. Other lectures cover autoimmune, allergic and immunodeficiency diseases, as well as new advances in interventional and clinical immunology and the molecular and genetic basis of immunologically-mediated diseases. All lecturers encourage interaction with the students through questions and discussions during lecture time. There is also ample opportunity for students to interact with the faculty outside the lecture room.

Course Objectives:

• Discuss the fundamental mechanisms underlying protective immune responses, and discuss the recent advances and emerging themes in immunology research.
• Describe the fundamental mechanisms underlying immunologic disease and associate these mechanisms with strategies for therapeutic modulation of the immune system.
• Appreciate the basic immunological principles underlying biotherapeutics, recognize the commonality among diverse organ-specific disease states and infer the mechanisms of therapeutic effect.
• Analyze the medical literature reporting immunologic advances pertinent to their patients, cite the rationale for use of new immunodiagnostic and immunotherapeutic modalities in their patients, and serve as thought leaders within their medical communities.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
