Ettal, Bavaria, March 6 - 11, 2022
The DGfI Spring School on Immunology, now in its 17th year, offers advanced training in specialized immunological topics and is suitable for young researchers and physicians with solid immunological knowledge. It is organized by Friederike Berberich-Siebelt (Würzburg), Hyun-Dong Chang (Berlin), Christine Falk (Hannover), Robert Jack (Greifswald), Michael Lohoff (Marburg), Fritz Melchers (Berlin), Andreas Radbruch (Berlin) and Hendrik Schulze-Koops (München), under the patronage of the German Society for Immunology.
The 2020 issue of the Spring School was for the first time organized as a hybrid meeting in autumn, due to the on-going SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. For more information please read the News & Views article in the EJI:
Due to limited space the number of participants is restricted to 60. In general, we receive more applications than available places, and in this case the organizing committee selects the participants. Selection criteria are: level of education, number of applicants from a city/university/institute etc. Students who are at the start of their careers are generally recommended to attend the Autumn School first.

Ettal is a small but well known town in Bavaria near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in the Ammergauer Alps, the largest nature reserve in Germany. The village of Ettal is famous for the Benedictine Monastery founded by Ludwig IV - "the Bavarian" - in 1330. The unique monastery complex is one of the highlights of Bavarian Architecture.
Participants will stay at the hotel “Ludwig der Bayer” - a typical Bavarian hotel in the centre of Ettal. The lectures are held in the Chinese Hall of the Ettal monastery.
