The 2015 Shanghai Institute of Immunology (SII) Graduate Summer School was held successfully on Aug 5-15, 2015 at Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. The theme of this year’s SII Graduate Summer School was “Advancements on Immunology: from Bench to Bedside”. The summer school, which was sponsored by the Shanghai Degree Office and organized by SII, had attracted participation from 27 local and overseas experts and 67 students from more than 30 universities and institutes nationwide.

During the summer school, which lasted for 11 days, student participants had the opportunity to learn the latest advancements and techniques in immunology and related research areas. The summer school, through its activities such as oral and poster presentations and dinner with the experts, allowed students to have an intimate interactions and discussions with the experts. Students were encouraged to participate actively in the activities and awards were given to students who excels.

As the first institute that specializes in immunology research, Shanghai Institute of Immunology takes pride in the training of future immunologists, the building blocks of the advancement of immunology and clinical research. The summer school would not have been successful without strong support from the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Graduate School and School of Medicine. We hope that these kinds of events would spark interests in the younger generation on immunology research and contribute to graduate education in Shanghai and China.
