Previous experience in writing proposals is welcome but not required. Explore the link for further details on this course. 

Technology Facility, Department of Biology, University of York

This Flow Cytometry Course is aimed at both life science and clinical science fields, with the common fundamentals covered on day 1 and 2. The course then splits into life science and clinical orientated modules, from practical demonstrations to lectures highlighting not just the applications, but best practise as well. 

The course is constructed as a set of three modules. You can elect to attend the Course from between two to five days, depending on the Modules selected. 

The Modules consist of lectures interspersed with sessions in the laboratory. It is anticipated that instruments from three manufacturers will be available for practical work. 

Scientific Organisers: Dr Peter O'Toole, Mr Derek Davies, Dr Stephen Couzens and Dr Karen Hogg

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.

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.

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.

Bioscience Technology Facility The University of York Wentworth Way Heslington York YO10 5DD

An intensive, hands-on, four-day training course in the rapidly developing techniques of confocal microscopy.


This is a one day NHS networking conference focusing on how to incorporate new tests and technology, improving quality and accuracy in your immunology service plus shared first hand experiences for nurturing relationships and improving clinical practice. 

Jaipur, India

FOCIS is excited to develop the first FOCIS course for Southeast Asia, beginning in Jaipur, India in March 2019. This popular course is a unique opportunity to learn the latest developments in immunology and to engage with renowned faculty. Thirteen leading immunologists will cover major topics in cellular and molecular immunology. The course features three days of lectures, evening poster presentations as well as opportunities for privately arranged local tours of cultural sites in the historic Jaipur area. Travel awards are available from FOCIS to assist with the costs of attending the course.  Registration closes on 28 February 2019.
