Lectures and seminars Karolinska Immunology Seminar Series (KiSS)

14-10-2021 3:00 pm Add to iCal
Other Zoom based, lecture halls J3:04 and J3:07 at the ground hall Bioclinicum

The aim of Karolinska Immunology Seminar Series (KiSS) is to create an event with top speakers from all over the world that brings together the immunological community of Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital. We aim to cover a diverse spectrum of immunological topics while at the same time inviting outstanding speakers whose work is of general interest for everyone who wants to follow current trends in immunology.

We plan that, if epidemiological situation permits, most of the seminars (with the exception of the ones marked as webinars below) will take place in hybrid mode: through zoom and in lecture halls J3:04 and J3:07 at the ground hall Bioclinicum. Please follow the emails (sent through KiiM list) to stay tuned about the exact format of events and possible changes. Zoom links will be sent through this mailing list as well (contact one of the organizers a day or two before the seminar if you did not receive the link). Note that webinar version is open only to researchers based in Stockholm.

The seminars are supported by Allergy, Immunology and Inflammation PhD program.

All seminars are on Thursdays, 15:00-16:00
