LISA: Lower Saxony International Summer Academy
The LISA Summer Academy 2021 will be different from previous years. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Steering Committee has decided to hold LISA as an online Summer Academy this year. LISA will thus be a one-week event and unfortunately without the lab rotations usually offered, the cultural social program, and the informal gatherings with alumni and faculty.
Instead, a digital education program consisting of lectures, key note lectures, workshops, virtual lab tours, poster presentations, etc. will be offered. Details about the program will follow shortly. The application period for 2021 is completed.
If the situation allows it in 2022, LISA will again take place as a face-to-face event in the usual scope.
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 tenth year with nearly 330 alumni and selects highly-qualified bachelor and master students in the life sciences who demonstrate a strong interest in immunology. In 2020 LISA had to be cancelled due to the pandemic.
The program consists of one week of lectures given by scientists from the MHH, HZI, Fraunhofer ITEM and TWINCORE, followed by two weeks of practical training 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.
The application period is completed.
