Translational Immunology


Due to the Coronavirus, Translational Immunology and the satellite BIS meeting were postponed from 26-27 March 2020 to the end of the year. We are happy to confirm the new date: 8-9 December 2020.

The aim of this conference is to bridge the translational gap in immunopathology, bringing together clinicians, research scientists and industry partners to discuss prominent advances from the bench to the clinic. The different sessions will have a particular focus on precision medicine in general, starting from disease-oriented cases and lessons learned. Innovative and alternative therapeutic strategies in immune-mediated disorders will be presented, besides the regulatory challenges that companies and researchers are dealing with.

- Abstract submission: 5 October 2020
