Tumour immune microenvironment and immunotherapies


The course will discuss cancer and its complex interactions with the immune system. We will focus on the tumour immune microenvironment, cell and antibody therapies, and cancer vaccines.
Our goal is to provide high quality up to date immunology knowledge, highly interactive discussion sessions, a flow cytometry workshop, poster presentations, and  training in grant writing.
We aim to bring together students and faculty to promote career progression of young African scientists.


This 5-day course is open to 50 graduate students enrolled in academic PhD programs, postdoctoral fellows, MDs and young researchers engaged in Immunology & Cancer related research projects.

  • The candidates should have some level of research experience to benefit maximally.
  • Those applying should ensure that their passport is valid for at least  6 months beyond the dates of the course as visa application time is short.
  • Selection of students will be based on the quality of the abstract submitted, research output and academic excellence.
  • There is a registration fee of $100
  • Selected students will receive partial or full funding to cover registration, accommodation and travel expenses

Successful candidates will be notified by March 27
