International Advanced
Training School 2016
Molecular Medicine
24 - 28 October
Molecular Immunology
iBiMED, Department of Medical Sciences, University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal
The importance of keeping the immune system in control has become more evident
in recent years. It is now clear that it is essential to regulate the delicate balance of
immune responses to fight infections and cancers but also to avoid auto-immune
disorders. The aim of this course is to provide an overview on how is the immune
response regulated in homeostasis vs infection and to run practical sessions in flow
cytometry tools.
This course is aimed at researchers with little Immunology knowledge. Due to hands-on sessions, this advanced training school has limited seats.

During this course you will learn
- Cells and molecules of the immune
- Structure and function of antigen
- Antigen processing and presentation;
- Intercellular communication;
- Activation of immune cells (signal
transduction and cytokine biology);
- Principles of operation and versatility
of flow cytometry for different
At the end of this course you should
be able to:
- Understand the molecular events that
trigger an immune response;
- Identify possible ways to modulate an
immune response;
- Interpret Immunology-related scientific

Philippe Pierre is an international leader in dendritic cell immunobiology and innate immunity. His research interests include
elucidation of MHC membrane traffic and antigen presentation, the role of proteolysis and ubiquitin during this process and
control of translation in dendritic cells, as well as the fundamental changes occurring during pathogen detection.
