About Workshops:

An integral part of the School's Curriculum is participation in workshops.


The workshops will be organized as two-day retreats with overnight stay at various conference centers in Sweden. There will be at least two workshops per semester.


Each workshop will consist of two parts; the on-going discussion of our students' research projects with presentations and feedback in a tutorial-style group discussion.


The other half of the workshop will be centered on discussions with invited speakers regarding a current topic of interest in inflammatory diseases.


Examples of workshop - topics are:

  • Introduction to the school
  • Tolerance in autoimmunity
  • Health economy in chronic inflammation
  • Using Swedish registries for epidemiological studies
  • Tools for a systems-biology approach to chronic inflammation
  • Drug development and clinical trials in inflammatory diseases
  • Commercial adaptions of research in inflammation
  • Clinical and experimental rheumatology
  • Non-pharmaceutical therapies in treatment of chronic inflammation and allergies
  • Living with chronic inflammation - perspectives of the patient and the Physician
  • Quality of Life in chronic inflammation, a scientific approach
