LASID summer school 2020 calling for bids.
January 10 - January 31
LASID is committed in promoting knowledge in PID all across the continent at first place. One of the most important objectives of our society is to promote education and interaction between our scientific community, their peers and a young generation to improve clinical and basic research aiming to improve diagnosis and treatment of our patients.
Our society had its foundations in the Latin American Group for Immunodeficiencies (LAGID), an interest group that was born in 1993 during the ALAI Congress in Santiago (Chile). LAGID held its first meeting in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1994. Following that initiative, a number of LAGID meetings happened, including the first Summer School in 2006 (see table), until 2009, when LAGID became LASID and the first LASID Congress was held in Cartagena de Indias (Colombia).
In the subsequent year, March 2010, LASID developed our first summer school as an educational initiative according to our mission, in order to reach and educate young immunologists in the field of primary immunodeficiencies. Following this purpose the central directive developed the following guideline to submit a candidate venue to host our next school.
