Translational Immunology

Due to the ever-changing covid-19 situation and to ensure the safety of our speakers and attendees, together with the organizing committee we have made the decision to postpone the event once more. We would like to organize a live edition of this event on 22 - 23 November 2021 in Ghent, Belgium

The aim of this conference is to bridge the translational gap in immunopathology, bringing together clinicians, research scientists and industry partners to discuss prominent advances from the bench to the clinic.

Internationally renowned speakers will present their latest findings during 5 plenary sessions:

  • Making the most of your antibodies
  • T Cell activation and exhaustion
  • Bugs and drugs in immunology
  • From drug to market
  • Tissue immunity

Information for poster submissions

The format for your poster should be: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation. The best three abstracts were given a short talk slot in the plenary program. The 2 best posters will win the Poster prize sponsored by Elsevier's journal "Cellular Immunology"!Deadlines:
