The 2019 UK Natural Killer Cells Workshop will be held at St John’s College, Cambridge on 11 January 2019 and is held in collaboration with the BSI Cambridge Immunology Group. This one-day workshop is one of the highlights in the calendar of UK experts in Natural Killer (NK) cells. With more than 10 years of tradition, this workshop has a friendly environment that fosters communication and collaboration.
NK cells are key targets for new immunotherapies and knowledge of NK cell biology is fundamental to develop new therapies. The primary audience is immunologists. The main learning objective is to update the attendants on the latest developments in NK cell research with relevance to, for example, oncology and infectious diseases.
The Scientific Advisory Committee (Dr Francesco Colucci and Dr James Traherne from University of Cambridge as well as Hormas Ghadially from Medimmune) will select a Faculty of 15-20 speakers among the 100 or so participants and all attendants will engage in discussions during the allotted question times and at breaks.
A programme for the event will follow shortly.
Delegates are invited to submit abstracts for the opportunity to communicate their work. Abstract submission is now open and will close on Monday 17 December. Please submit your abstract (max. 250 words) using this Google doc.
Registration is now open. BSI members are eligible for complimentary registration for this meeting. If you are not a BSI member, there will be a charge of £20 for attendance.
