Are you interested in infection and immunology? Then the “Lower Saxony International Summer Academy in Infection and Immunology (LISA)” is just the thing! The academy is aimed at young students of life sciences and medicine (Bachelor’s/Master’s) from all over the world who wish to do a doctorate in immunology or infection research. It includes lectures where lecturers present their scientific work and participation in practical demonstrations and laboratory rotations. LISA will take place for the twelfth time this year – from 27 August to 15 September 2023.

Up to 40 young researchers can participate in the programme, which is significantly supported by RESIST this year. The content of LISA has also been adapted in line with the focus topics of the Cluster of Excellence and includes current topics in immunological and infectiological research as well as introductions to innovative experimental techniques. It covers basic science and translational aspects as well as new therapeutic approaches. Applications are still possible until 30 April 2023.
