Over the last years immense progress has been made in immunological research. In order to implement this knowledge into clinical practice the training of experts in the topics of translational immunology and infectious diseases is necessary. The new research-oriented English master’s course ‘Medical Immunosciences and Infection’ at the University of Bonn is aimed to fill this important educational gap and teach the vast knowledge we have in this area.
