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. Offering up to 11 CPD credits and 11 hours of education sessions, the conference provides an exciting and stimulating programme to address the medical, scientific, educational and management issues relevant to all those working in the field.
After the success of the 2017 event, this year’s conference will be held alongside the British Society of Immunology Congress and will incorporate sessions once again. New Frontiers in the Diagnosis and Management of PID will take place 5 and 6 December 2019 with joint BSI and UKPIN plenary sessions held on Thursday 5 December.
