LISA: Lower Saxony International Summer Academy

LISA: Lower Saxony International Summer Academy

The Lower Saxony International Summer Academy is a short-term course on current topics of immunology research and experimental techniques. The successful LISA program is now in its seventh year with over 250 alumni and selects highly-qualified bachelor and master students in the life sciences who demonstrate a strong interest in immunology. The program consists of one week of lectures given by scientists from the MHH, HZI, and Twincore, followed by at least one (and up to three) week-long rotations in campus laboratories where participants have the opportunity to apply their new knowledge of immunology. The program is supplemented by "State of the Art" knowledge presented by renowned researchers from prestigious institutions.

friendly, structured, beautiful - are the most prominent keywords the LISA students associate with our sommerschool and Germany in 2017. Now - after the seventh class has finished - approximately 250 students from all over the world have been our guests. Many of them came back to Hannover region and joined in one of the junior development Programms in Hannover or Braunschweig.

"This is Dennis from Ghana, from LISA 2017. I am writing to say thank you for your time during the LISA program. Your lectures, tutorials, and encouragement were extremely helpful in broadening my interest in immunology as a whole. I also had a nice time in Germany, thanks to your well-organized program. I am glad that I was part of LISA this year. I hope to meet you again someday. All the best in everything you are doing."
