The European Mucosal Immunology Group (EMIG) is a group of European scientists working in the field of mucosal immunology trying to build up a close network of collaborations within Europe. The group is connected to the Society for Mucosal Immunology (SMI), a worldwide society of more than 900 scientists and clinicians in the field of mucosal immunology. These groups worked tirelessly to build a European scientific network organizing biannual meetings.
The 12th European Mucosal Immunology Group Meeting will take place in Bern, Switzerland on 12–14 July 2023. The meeting will aim to cover all the different disciplines within mucosal immunology, such as host-pathogen interactions at mucosal surfaces (such as the intestine, the airways, the urogenital tract and the skin), developmental aspects of mucosal immunity, regulation of mucosal inflammation and tissue repair, gene-environment interactions in mucosal diseases, microbiome and more.
