opportunity to engage with faculty and peers to discuss your most challenging cases
in the flipped classroom format and learn about the use of novel agents in the fields of
rheumatology, dermatology, allergy, and infectious disease. Get up to speed on the rapid
advances in laboratory immunology.
Biologic Therapies VII Summit is an advanced course that brings together world leaders in immune-based therapies and addresses cutting-edge translational immunology and the latest data on biologic therapeutics.
