Photos from the course: ONCOIMMUNOLOGY-MEXICO Photos

Date: 5-8 October, 2016.

Location: San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, MEXICO.

Site: Hotel Misión San Miguel de Allende

  • Supported by the International Union of Immunologists (IUIS), the Latin American Association of Immunology (ALAI) and the Mexican Society of Immunology (SMI), the IUIS-ALAI-SMI ONCOIMMUNOLOGY-MEXICO will be the first international course in its type in Latin America.
  • This event will provide the fundamental knowledge and mechanisms underlying immune responses in cancer, the recent advances and emerging research.
  • Moreover, it will encourage professional discussion on current strategies for therapeutic modulation of the immune system in cancer, between and among the next generation of leading Latin American Immunologists and outstanding national and international scientists.
  • An opportunity for the participants to become acquainted with the most recent developments in the field of Oncology and Immunology and to establish contacts for future collaborations is highly expected.
  • The target audience will include clinical and research fellows, postgraduate students interested and currently performing research in disciplines related to Immunology and Oncology, and scientists or other research professionals from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies who are involved in developing new therapies in those biomedical fields.
  • All participants will have free access to teaching material via Immunopaedia and are expected to have familiarized themselves with basic and clinical onco-immunology concepts.
  • Table 1 below shows the course lecturer, title of their topic and the link to the section in this module for ease of reference
  • At the end of each section there are multiple choice questions, where you can assess your knowledge as you proceed
