The 2017 meeting will focus on the complex and fascinating area of “Tissue-resident immunity”, allowing us to explore the increasing appreciation of the complexity and importance of local immune responses. We aim to bring together world leaders in Tissue-resident immunity to provide a platform for scientific discussion, collaboration and the promotion of this exciting and developing field of research.

As in previous years, we are hosting several distinguished speakers who have had an illustrious career in Tissue-Resident Immunity research.

This speakers confirmed so far are:

Professor Reina Mebius (Amsterdam) ‘Micro-environmental control of the immune system’

Dr Susanne Herold (Giessen) 'Macrophages in influenza virus-induced lung injury resolution and repair'

Dr Paul Kubes (Calgary) 'Tissue resident immunity in lung versus liver.  Two very different systems'

Dr Yasmine Belkaid (NIH)

Dr Andrew McKenzie (Cambridge) 'ILC2 at the interface with adaptive immunity in the lung'

Professor Adrian Hayday (London)

Dr Menna Clatworthy (Cambridge)  'Extreme Living - Halophilic lessons from Kidney-resident mononuclear phagocytes'

Associate Professor Dave Masopust (Minnesota)  'Immune Surveillance by Resident Memory T Cells'

We encourage and welcome all researchers (at all levels) who have an interest in immunology to attend this event. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please contact Dr Tammy Dougan for details.
