Target Audience
Whereas EAACI’s Allergy Schools are tailored for more junior attendees, the Master Class requires a higher level of professional experience and offers an excellent platform for exchange of knowledge. However, age is not a criterion for exclusion.

The Master Class is intended for clinicians, researchers and lab specialists who want to learn more about primary immunodeficiencies and the link to allergic diseases.
