We will highlight cutting edge studies on the translation of immunological discoveries made in pre-clinical model systems to benefit patients and provide direct evidence on the immunological basis of human disease. The meeting will feature high profile speakers from academia and industry, while providing oral presentation slots for early career researchers.
