CSACI Studentship 2021
CSACI Summer Studentship Awards
The goals of the CSACI summer studentships are to enable undergraduate trainees and medical students to become familiar with the field of Clinical Immunology and Allergy to facilitate interest to pursue further training in this area. The goals of the Society are to support research efforts in the following diseases: asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, chronic urticaria, food allergy, anaphylaxis, immunodeficiency and other immunological diseases.
