Cambridge Immunology Forum 2016 - Neuro-Immunology

Cambridge Immunology Network 2016 - Neuro-Immunology

Interaction between the Immune system and the nervous systemNeuroimmuno 2
In 2016, the home of the annual Cambridge Immunology Forum will be Queens' College Cambridge. The date will be 22nd September 2016

The immune system is vast, highly complex and tightly regulated. For normal homeostasis to prevail the immune system interacts with many other systems in our bodies, one being our nervous system. As such, the theme will be 'Neuro-Immunolgy". This emerging  and varied field deals with the interrelationships of the nervous system, immune responses and autoimmune disorders - giving rise to a myriad of disorders such as multiple sclerosis, AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Guillain Barré Syndrome, myasthenia gravis and brain tumors. 

As in previous years, we are hosting several distinguished speakers who have had an illustrious career in neuro-immunology research. This speakers confirmed so far are:

Details of how to register for this event and the poster competition will be posted on the website at the start of next year. 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!

The new Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre - CITIID

See the home of CITIID being built in this fantastic time-lapse video. From basement to water tight in 17 months. The Jeffrey Cheah Bimedical Centre is now complete and home to the Cambridge Immunology Network Coordinator.

Fibroblast

‘Fibroblast’ has been developed from a conversation between Harold Offeh and Dr Alice Denton, a scientist based at the Babraham Institute and a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network. Offeh was particularly interested in the character and roles played by particular cells in the immune system, as well as the immune system’s role as a primary source of protection and care. The film takes as a starting point microscopic images of broblast cells, an area of research for Dr Denton.
