The 2nd NSI Finse retreat April 10-12, 2015



The venue is  Finse Alpine Research Station, situated midway between Oslo and Bergen, in a beautiful alpine landscape, with plenty of opportunities for cross country skiing.

The scope of the meeting is to gather researchers in immunology (PhD students, post docs, senior scientists) from all over Norway for a weekend of informal discussions on ongoing immunological research. The program will consist of short, informal oral presentations by all attendees, followed by discussions and input.
