Summer School 2022: Immune regulation of the skin

The Summer School is an exclusive chance to meet and learn from the world’s leading researchers within skin immunology. 13 speakers give the newest insight on the role of T cells in skin development and inflammation, regulation and danger sensing mechanisms, and the regeneration of wounded skin. The Summer School is now open for applications.
