  • Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease

    21 - 22 February 2019

    Brugge, Belgium

    Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease Type 2 inflammation rich in eosinophils, basophils and mast cells and orchestrated by Th2 lymphocytes has been mainly studied in the context of allergies and immune responses to helminths. Since the discovery of type 2 innate lymphoid cells there has been a strong interest in understanding how type 2 immunity is induced and regulated, for example by barrier epithelial cells. Given the recent introduction of new biologics that target type 2 cytokines to treat severe allergic disease, we are accumulating a lot of new insights on type 2 immune responses in humans as well. This meeting will not only focus on new effector and regulatory mechanisms of the type 2 immune response. It will also offer a number of talks taking a broader look on type 2 immunity, dealing with such topics as type 2 immunity in homeostasis, growth and repair, metabolism, neuro-immune interactions and cancer. Understanding these alternative roles for type 2 immunity will be important to address the benefits and potential pitfalls of long-term inhibition of type 2 immunity by biologicals and could elucidate new therapeutic pathways for very common diseases like asthma, obesity, diabetes and cancer. Abstracts can be submitted for the following topics: Tissue homeostasis and repair Type 2 Neuro-immune axis Type 2 in allergy, asthma & helminth infection Type 2 Immunity & Cancer Deadlines: • Early Bird: 10 January 2019 • Late Registration: 7 February 2019 • Abstract deadline: 19 December 2018 2019-02-21 08:00:00 UTC 2019-02-22 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences OLD ST.

  • Systems Medicine - Virtual Spring Seminar Series 2020

    29 April - 27 May 2020

    Elixir node event
    Systems Medicine - Virtual Spring Seminar Series 2020 ELIXIR Slovenia will organize a **Virtual Spring Seminar Series 2020** where experts from all over the world will share their experiences with systems medicine. Systems medicine is a field that will enable the translation of recent technological and scientific advances into the clinical practice. With systems medicine we will boost our understanding of disease mechanisms and the efficacy of treatments. Ultimately, systems medicine will bring a more personalised approach to healthcare, which may radically change the interaction between patients, doctors and other healthcare professionals. New healthcare approaches are an urging need, even accelerated in the Covid-19 era. The webinars will be hosted by **Prof. Dr. Damjana Rozman, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia**. You can join the webinars on **Zoom** by [following this link]( **Programme:** **Wednesday, 29 April 2020, 16h – 17h CEST** Prof. Dr. Sona Vasudevan, Georgetown University, Washington D.C, USA Title: Systems Medicine with Three-dimensional Insights **Thursday, 30 April 2020, 16h – 18h CEST** Henning Hermjakob, EMBL-EBI, Cambridge, UK Johannes Griss, Medical University of Vienna, Austria Title: Reactome Pathway Analysis and Visualization **Thursday, 7 May 2020, 16h – 17h CEST** Prof. Dr. Josep Roca, University of Barcelona, Spain Title: Digital Health for Enhanced Understanding and Management of Health Events: COPD and COVID-19 as Use Cases **Wednesday, 13 May 2020, 16h – 17h CEST** Prof. Dr. Anke-Hilse Maitland-van der Zee, Amsterdam UMC, the Netherlands Title: Precision Medicine in Respiratory Medicine, Translation into Clinical Practice **Wednesday, 20 May 2020, 16h – 17h CEST** Prof. Dr. Kristel van Steen, KU Leuven, Belgium Title: TBA **Wednesday, 27 May 2020, 16h – 17h CEST** TBA 2020-04-29 16:00:00 UTC 2020-05-27 17:00:00 UTC University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Medicine Systems medicine Personalised medicine University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Medicine ELIXIR Slovenia PhysiciansLife Science ResearchersbioinformaticiansClinicians workshops_and_courses [] systems medicinepersonalized medicineWebinareLearning
