The Training School is part of the European Union's (COST Action BM1007)   “Mast Cells and Basophils – Targets for Innovative Therapies” and is being held under the auspices of The Hebrew University. The organizers of the School were Prof. Francesca Levi-Schaffer from the Faculty of Medicine of The Hebrew University and Prof. Ronit Sagi-Eisenberg from the Sackler School of Medicine Tel Aviv University.
