The immunoengineering field is transforming cancer, autoimmunity, regeneration, and transplantation treatments by combining the diverse and complex fields of engineering and immunology. There is a significant need to train engineers in immunology and immunologists in quantitative engineering techniques. Moreover, there is a need to bridge basic immunological discoveries with advances in clinical application. The virtual three-week workshop will review immune system fundamentals and components, engineering strategies to modulate the immune system, and clinical applications.
Workshop attendees will learn
- The fundamentals and recent discoveries of immune system functions
- Engineering strategies to manipulate the immune system
- Immunoengineering clinical applications
The workshop will run every Tuesday and Thursday, Jan. 2-18, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. ET. It is designed for graduate students, medical students, residents, and fellows in engineering, immunology, and related fields. Engineering and clinical faculty, and industry professionals will benefit from the course, too.
This workshop is eligible for CME credit. It is also offered as a two-credit course to Johns Hopkins students for intersession 2024. The SIS courses are listed as EN.580.403 (undergraduate) and EN.580.703 (graduate), Advances in Immunoengineering.
