New Frontiers in Innate Immunity and Inflammation

By | Conference | No Comments

About the event

This international symposium will cover novel aspects on inflammation, microbiome and immunometabolism, related to the understanding of innate immune responses.  An international group of experts in the field will present their work, including Charles Dinarello, Luke’O’Neill, Ramnik Xavier, Joachim Schultze, Mihai Netea, Alberto Mantovani, Eicke Latz, Leo Joosten, Douglas Golenbock, Ioana Berindan-Neagoe, Herbert Tilg, Thirumala Kanneganti, Mihaela Lupse, Evangelos Giamarellos, Tom van der Poll, Dan Littman and Jos van der Meer.

In addition, oral presentations will be chosen from the submitted abstracts, and a ‘Best Oral Presentation Prize’ and ‘Best Poster prize’ will be awarded.

We would like to invite colleagues in the field to join us in this very exciting scientific meeting. The deadline for abstract submission is 15-April 2018, and for registration is 15-July 2018. Registration is 100 euros and includes registration, lunches and the welcome reception. There will be a limit of 300 participants for the conference.

Innate Immune Memory 14-16 March 2017

By | Conference | No Comments

We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the second in our series of meetings on Innate Immune Memory. The meeting will bring together scientists and clinicians working in immunology and related areas, in particular those interested in epigenetic regulation of the immune system, cell metabolism, vaccine development and immunotherapy.

This conference will highlight current work on the adaptive features of the innate immune system and discuss how these features can be activated and regulated. We will also explore how it can be ‘trained’ by internal and external modulators and how this might be harnessed to develop new therapies to treat inflammatory diseases, infection and cancer.

We welcome abstracts from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting, for oral and poster presentations. A limited number of bursaries for PhD students are available. For full details, please visit the conference website.
