Stemness, Regeneration and Immunity: from development to therapy

Hybrid – The Francis Crick Institute, London, UK & online
Monday, 20 June, 2022 - 10:00 to Tuesday, 21 June, 2022 - 17:00


This meeting will bridge epithelial stem cell biology and immunology: interaction with epithelia is crucial for shaping lymphoid organs and regulate their functions from early development through to postnatal and adult life. The symposium also aims to define pathways and mechanisms of regeneration that might lead to new therapies. The meeting will bring together internationally-renowned key experts who adopt different but complementary approaches, spanning basic science through to the clinical application of cell therapies.

Plenary lectures will be followed by short and flash talks selected from the submitted abstracts to give early career researchers opportunities to present their work.

Abstract submission is open. Deadline: Friday 13 May 2022.

Poster sessions and networking will give attendees ample opportunities to present their work and to interact with scientists working across these disciplines.

This meeting is planned as a hybrid event with an in-person audience at The Francis Crick Institute in London joined by online attendees.

Student tickets are available along with 50% discounts on tickets for groups of four or more.
