NEW! ESID Diagnostic Workshop 2023 is coming this winter!

Building on the very successful organization of the five previous editions of CCI-Freiburg workshops, the 6th Diagnostic Workshop is now being fully taken under the auspices of ESID, integrating it into its Educational Programme (also including ESID Summer School and PIDCD School). 

We invite international clinicians and laboratory physicians to participate in our expert symposium to exchange information and discuss state of the art diagnostic procedures of disorders of the innate, cellular, and humoral immune system, interferonopathies and their genetics in an interactive case-based format.
