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.

Due the current epidemiological situation the seminars will take place through zoom from private computers only till further notice. Please follow the emails (through KiiM and CMM lists) or contact one of the organizers a day or two before the seminar to get the zoom link and to follow possible changes in the schedule. Note that seminars remain 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
