group photo at Winter School 2013

The NIF Winter School on Advanced Immunology has been created in 2011 by members of IFReC and SIgN Research Centers. The aim is to provide an opportunity for 50 selected international PhD students and young postdocs to meet with a Faculty of 16 world-class experts and explore networking and learning in Asia.

The four-day intensive program will be held in Singapore in January 2019. There will be lectures from leading immunologists on a wide range of topics and the format of the school will facilitate exchange of ideas and establishment of networking opportunities for all participants.

Our ultimate goal is for the school to become a major international focal point in the field of immunology in Asia and to foster a new generation of scientists who will lead and challenge the boundaries of immunological science in the future.

We welcome students from all disciplines to participate in the program. The selection process is highly competitive and we expect students to be highly motivated to actively participate to all the School activities during the five-day intensive program.


Network of Immunology Frontier (NIF)

The name “Network of Immunology Frontier” (NIF) comes from the names of the institutes, SIgN and IFReC, organizing this school. The NIF is a world-wide network of immunologists which supports the next generation of young researchers to drive the frontiers of immunology research and to form a network with peers from their generation.
