Dear Juniors,

The 19th Immunology Winter School on Basic Immunology Research in Allergy and Clinical Immunology took place digitally on January 22-24, 2021. Despite the pandemic, the attendance was extraordinary with participants of 27 countries from 5 continents.

The organising committee of the Winter School was formed by Eva Untersmayr-Elsenhuber (chair of the Basic & Clinical Immunology Section) and Milena Sokolowska (secretary of the Basic & Clinical Immunology Section) in collaboration with the organizing committee members: Inge Kortekaas-Krohn and Andrzej Eljaszewicz (Basic & Clinical Immunology Section), and Wojciech Feleszko (chair of the Infections Working Group), and had the support of the rest of the Basic & Clinical Immunology Section members.

The Winter School maintained its “young” and networking atmosphere with an elegant and functional online platform, and promoted the participation of Junior Members that contributed with oral (20) and poster presentations (46). Furthermore, the scientific quality of the Winter School was raised with the participation of worldwide renowned scientists in the field of trained immunity (Mihai Netea, The Netherlands), immunometabolism (Lydia Lynch, USA), innate lymphoid cells (Hergen Spits, The Netherlands) and the homeostatic role of IgE (Jessica Strid, UK) and IgG (Jagadeesh Bayry, France).

Next year, the Winter School will be memorable as it will be the 20th anniversary. It will be celebrated in Davos (Switzerland), where it originally started. It will have the participation of special speakers particularly selected for this unique occasion. We look forward to seeing you there! Nevertheless, our next stop will be in March at the Skin Allergy Meeting (SAM) – digital. Click here.
