Type 2 Immunology Meeting

Science and Industry Museum, Liverpool Road, Manchester, M3 4FP


Type 2 immunity is classically associated with resolution of helminth infections and induction of allergic pathology. However, the field is rapidly expanding and identifying type 2 immunity as being a critical driver in a range of immunological scenarios. The meeting will provide a platform primarily for junior researchers (postgraduates, postdoctoral and fellows) to present their work. The aim is to help promote junior researchers to develop networks with allied researchers from other UK and European institutions. This meeting is hosted by the BSI's Wessex Immunology Group and Greater Manchester Immunology Group

Keynote lectures will be given by established researchers addressing clinical and basic aspects of exciting new fields in type 2 immunity. The meeting will be held in Manchester, home to a number of world renowned Type 2 immunologists and a large community of researchers in this field. Additionally, it's central location in the UK allows easy access for delegates from all over the UK and Europe. 


All postgraduate research students, postdoctoral researchers, clinical academic trainees and anyone working within any area of type 2 immunology are invited to submit an abstract using the abstract form. See more information about this in the abstract guidelines. The abstract submission deadline is Monday 20 May and the notification of the submission outcome will be on Monday 27 May.


A full programme will be online shortly. It will include three keynote lectures, short talks selected from submitted abstracts and poster presentations. Current confirmed keynote speakers are:

Prof Howard Clark (University of Southampton): Innate type 2 immunology in the lung
Dr William Horsnell (University of Cape Town): Maternal transfer of immunity
Prof Jenny Mjösberg (Karolinska Institute)
