Welcome to the Swiss Masterclasses in Eosinophilic Science!

Our goal is to create three balanced educational events for experts in Switzerland interested in developing their skillsets for treating patients suffering from eosinophilic diseases.

The three independent courses in Eosinophilic Science consist of lectures, workshops and hands-on sessions and offer you the opportunity to learn more about the function of eosinophils and the manifestation and treatment options of hypereosinophilic diseases.

Our aim is to offer an interdisciplinary approach that brings together established scientists and rising experts from immunology, pneumology, gastroenterology, dermatology, and other specializations and fosters a motivating learning environment.

We look forward to your participation!
