Accelerate Your Career 

If you are working on a career in primary immunodeficiencies, whether in the clinic, the lab, or a combination, this will be an excellent opportunity to update your knowledge from teachers at the forefront of PIDs, hear about the latest diagnostic tools, and learn from leaders in the field who see and manage patients with the whole spectrum of primary immunodeficiency, while also networking and socialising with your colleagues.

The detailed 2018 Summer School programme will be finalized at a later stage but as ESID junior member you will receive regular emails with updates and more detailed information.

The Green Park Resort Tirrenia is at the heart of the Tuscan seaboard, along 10 km of splendid coastline, a location that is surrounded entirely in nature and an excellent hub for visiting all of the nearby Italian cities, the beautiful hills, and the enchanting islands of the Tuscan archipelago.

Pisa, just a few short kilometres away, offers a wealth of art and events, such as Giugno Pisano (June in Pisa), which have become annual attractions for anyone seeking art, history, and ancient traditions that animate the region to this day Livorno, also a short drive away, is another must-see location.
