Accelerate Your Career 
If you are inspired by a career in the field of primary immunodeficiencies, whether in the clinic, the lab, or a combination, this will be an excellent opportunity to update your knowledge, 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.

Programme
The detailed 2019 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.
