School on Diagnostic Assessment of Immune Phenotyping
and Function in Primary Immunodeficiencies

Thursday, April 10, 2013
Hilton Baltimore

The School on Diagnostic Assessment of Immune Phenotyping and Function in Primary Immunodeficiencies, co-sponsored by the Clinical Immunology Society (CIS) and the Association of Medical Laboratory Immunologists (AMLI), will cover the latest advances in diagnostic testing for primary immunodeficiencies, the interface between the laboratory and the clinician in diagnosis and management, and future trends in clinical diagnostic immunology.  Each Session will conclude with a 15 minute panel discussion.
