Further information
You are invited to to take part. The course consists of invited lectures 
and participants' seminars, a site visit to a Danish antibody company, 
and discussions. The course is intended to cover essential topics within 
the area of immunochemistry. See the preliminary program below.
Each participant is asked to prepare a seminar which could be an account 
of his or her research project seen in relation to immunochemistry. If 
you do not find that you would like to present your research project, 
please contact me for a alternative seminar. A preliminary plan follows 
below and you may see that there is ample time for your presentation. 
After your presentation there will be time for discussion.
The course is primarily intended for Ph.D.-students engaged in projects 
related to immunochemistry and for Ph.D.-students who want to increase 
their knowledge about immunochemistry. It is also a goal that the course 
will be instrumental in formation of networks throught which everybody 
involved in the course could grow and mature scientifically.
Participants should return registration form and an abstract of their 
participant's seminar to PhD-studienfvnet, Panum, Blegdamsvej 3C, DK-2200 
Kxbenhavn N, Denmark (see below).
Immediately after easter I would like very much to have the following 
material from you for inclusion into the course note-book with your 
abstract:
- prints of overheads that you are going to use
- prints of slides if possible
- if you have relevant literature, we could include a copy in the 
note-book
- a reference list giving an entry to the most important recent 
literature
The course note-book will be handed out to participants and teachers on 
the first day of the course. The language will be English. 
A participants' dinner will be organized by the participants themselves 
and must by paid individually.
This page will be updated with the program (see above). Please check 
again.
