Imperial College London

Imperial College London offer a range of two-day face-to-face short courses in Allergy which are available both to students who are enrolled on the  MSc in Allergy programme, and as stand-alone CPD programmes for GPs, specialist trainees and consultants, nurses, dietitians and other healthcare professionals wishing to improve their ability to manage allergic patients in daily practice.


This on-demand webinar, hosted by Science and sponsored by Olink Proteomics, will focus on two breakthrough studies (published in the journals Cell and Nature, respectively), which employ a broad, systems biology approach to better understand early postnatal immune system development, and the immunological control of latent infections. Speaking will be Petter Brodin, MD, PhD of the Karolinska Institute, and Yueh-hsiu Chien, PhD, of Standford University.

Week 1 (Tuesday 23 – Friday 26 April 2019), based at The Pirbright Institute, Week 2 (Monday 30 April – Friday 3 May 2019) based at the University of Nottingham’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Science

The 2019 Poultry Health Course  is for veterinary surgeons, technical staff and managers from the poultry industry who wish to learn more about the nature, diagnosis and control of infectious diseases of poultry. The course is also suitable for non-specialist graduates who wish to gain a thorough knowledge of the poultry sector while working towards the postgraduate awards in Agrifood.

Week 1 (Tuesday 23 – Friday 26 April 2019), based at The Pirbright Institute, contains lectures around cutting edge scientific aspects of poultry health including anatomy, immunity, genetics and infectious disease, delivered by international experts from the UK, Europe and the US.

Week 2 (Monday 30 April – Friday 3 May 2019) is based at the University of Nottingham’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Science (SVMS), Sutton Bonington Campus and comprises a series of lectures and practical activity on the more applied aspects of poultry health including the turkey, duck and game bird industries, vaccination and use of antibiotics, problems of the broiler and layer industries, lameness, problems in the field and the art of field investigation.

08 Jul 2019 to 09 Jul 2019

University of Warwick

A two day course for those seeking a grounding in immunology. The course will be informal but intensive with limited numbers and a high level of staffing to encourage interaction, questions and discussion. Suitable for personnel from the pharmaceutical industry, the medical community and academic scientists. Prior knowledge of immunology is not necessary although a scientific background is essential.

15 Jul 2019 to 19 Jul 2019

Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, CB10 1RQ
This joint course with EMBL-EBI aims to provide an introduction to immunology bioinformatics and offer opportunities to explore key methods, tools and resources that can be applied to research.
The course will provide participants with an overview of best-practice methods in applying bioinformatics approaches and enable them to become confident users of their own and public domain data. The resources introduced during the course will cover a variety of data types, from genomic and proteomic data; to computational models, biological pathways and reaction information. Participants will gain experience of the analysis pipelines for NGS experiments relevant to immunology, and will be led through an exploration of this data to identify information of interest. Additionally participants will be introduced to how data from a number of sources can be integrated to provide a wider view of their research.
