Interventional Immunology Course: Rationale and underlying mechanisms related to therapeutic targets in various diseases.
The Interventional Immunology Course provides education on the many new therapies that are currently available or in development which are based on targets unfamiliar to many practicing physicians. There is potentially great value for, but lack of, cross-disciplinary reviews of these types of therapies.
This course reviews the scientific basis for choice of immunogically related therapeutic targets in various diseases, including organ specific and systemic autoimmunity, allergy, transplant rejection, cancer, and HIV. The goal is to help understand the rationale and mechanism underlying the major pharmacologic approaches for interventional immunology in current practice and review the track record of the different therapeutic approaches in different specialties.

Innovative Approach to Trainee Development
FOCIS Centers of Excellence Trainee Satellite Symposium -- FOCIS Centers of Excellence (FCE), centers for clinical immunology at multiple, international institutions, were organized in 2003 to intensify and accelerate local multidisciplinary scientific and clinical innovation, education, and advocacy. Currently, 37 Centers exist at medical educational institutions in North America, as well as 14 additional centers internationally. The FCE are committed to sustaining a network of cooperative laboratories without walls with the ultimate goal of improving patient care through collaborative research efforts and the sharing of best practices.
The sixth annual Trainee Satellite Symposium features presentations by
trainees from each of the FCE who are chosen based upon a competitive
selection process within each insti
