Here is the information you requested for the AAI Immunology course.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

The American Association of Immunologists
Course in Advanced Immunology
to be held at

University of California, San Diego

July 22-27, 1996

under the auspices of the
Education Committee

 Stephen M. Hedrick, Chairman


This course will explore recent advances in immunobiology from the cell
biology of antigen presentation to the induction of inflammatory responses.
The faculty has been drawn from experts in their respective fields. We
will attempt to draw the audience into a dialog with the speaker in every
session.  Faculty members have been asked to remain for several days
surrounding their lectures.  This is an intense course for serious students
of immunology. It is directed toward graduate students, postdoctoral
fellows, and clinicians with an interest in research.



        The Advanced Course in Immunology was first considered by the
Council of the American Association of Immunologists (AAI) in 1964 at the
suggestion of Dr. Sheldon Dray, then secretary-treasurer.  It was intended
as a Summer Course in Immunology of two to three weeks of intensive
teaching at the professional level.  It was the belief that the course
would help in meeting some of the "great need for better dissemination of
knowledge concerning new developments in immunology."

        A year later the AAI Council approved the course, and the first
offering was at Lake Forest College, Lake Forest, Illinois from July 25 to
August 6, 1966.

        Since 1966, the Course has been self-sustaining and continues to be
received with enthusiasm by students from academia, government and
industry.  There is consensus about the significant benefit to the
participants representing teaching and research facilities of institutions
in the United States and abroad.

        The Course attracts graduate students, post-doctoral fellows,
clinical fellows, industrial researchers and those who are interested in a
refresher course in immunology.


This course is intended primarily for advanced graduate students,
post-doctoral and clinical fellows and industry investigators who want to
expand their knowledge of immunology.  Attendance is limited to 150.  This
is NOT a survey course, although review materials will be introduced.  The
registration fees are:

$150 Graduate Students (must have letter of certification from advisor)
$175 Postdoctoral (must have letter of certification from advisor)
$250 Regular
$350 Industry

Room and board at the University of California, San Diego will be
approximately $400 per person for the week of the course.  All fees will be
due no later than June 1, 1996.  Lodging space will be allocated as per
receipt of your registration, so early registration is urged.

The course venue is the University of California, San Diego.

The AAI Course in Advanced Immunology has applied for certification for CME
Category 1 credit on an hour-for-hour basis for up to 48 credits hours.
CME forms, which must be completed and returned for credit, will be
available in the office of the American Association of Immunologists and at
the Course.  There is a $25 processing fee, payable AFTER completion of the
course and upon submission of the CME application.   For the purposes of
providing Continuing Medical Education Credits, this course is jointly
sponsored by The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology,
and the American Association of Immunologists.

Thursday, July 25, afternoon and evening will be free time.  Excursions
planned may include a  trip to Mexico or diving off the coast.


To apply for the Course, please submit a letter summarizing your background
in immunology and your interest in attending, a list of your current
research/teaching activities and a brief C.V. Please submit the application
no later than April 1, 1996.
