The Immunomeeting Seminar Series  is held at the University of Basel's Department of Biomedicine (Hebelstrasse) on Mondays during term time. Researchers from the various University of Basel immunology Community (uBICo) member groups present their work at these weekly meetings, in addition to invited guest speakers and uBICo distinguished speakers.

The uBICo Distinguished Immunology Speakers series sees leading researchers from around the world present their work at the Immunomeetings, which are then held in the ZLF Small Lecture Theater. These speakers partake in an extended programme during their visit to Basel which sees them spending the day with faculty and students at the Department of Biomedicine.

In addition to being accredited postgraduate lecture courses at the University of Basel (15581-01 Seminar: Immunology I and 17493-01 Seminar: Immunology II) the seminar series is also registered with the Veterinäramt Basel-Stadt for ongoing education. Attendees of relevant Immunomeetings have the opportunity to get credit towards “Aus- und Weiterbildungsveranstaltungen für Fachpersonal für Tierversuche”.

The Immunomeetings are coordinated by Prof. Gennaro De Libero, head of the Experimental Immunology Research Lab. For further information on the Immunomeetings please contact: Dr Paula Cullen
