Education and training

The department Immunohematology and Bloodtransfusion (IHB) is actively involved in the LUMC educational program with an emphasis on regenerative medicine, immunology, transplantation and autoimmunity. This involves teaching activities within the Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. The department offers internship opportunities for students of the discipline Medicine, Biomedical Science and Laboratory education. Furthermore, a large number of PhD students are enrolled within the department.

Next to the above named educational tasks the department in collaboration with the Amsterdam-Leiden Institute for Immunology (ALIFI) organizes courses in immunology for PhD students and technicians. During the weekly organized Immunology Review Club (IRC) prominent immunologists present their scientific results.

Every year the department organizes The Jon J. van Rood Symposium.
