The biennial UKPIN conference is the UK Primary Immunodeficiency Network’s (UKPIN) flagship event and a must-attend conference for consultants, trainees, nurses, and scientists involved in the healthcare of patients with primary immunodeficiencies, or in research into these diseases. The event is designed to provide an exciting and stimulating programme to address the medical, scientific, educational and management issues relevant to all those working in the field.
This year’s event will be held alongside the British Society of Immunology's Annual Congress and for the first time will incorporate joint plenary sessions on the first day. In these combined sessions we will explore basic immunobiology relevant to emerging fields in clinical practice, led by leaders in the fields of innate, adaptive, cellular and humoral immunity. The meeting will also cover a range of familiar topics including novel therapies in primary immune deficiency, new developments in diagnostic laboratory immunology and immunological genomic medicine.
Joint sessions with BSI Annual Congress include:
