Mechanisms of Innate Immunity, Cell Death and Inflammation

25 & 26 September 2014, Gent

The International Symposium on Mechanisms of Innate Immunity, Cell Death and Inflammation (ICDI symposium) wants to bring together scientists from all over the world to discuss their latest findings on the various aspects of the innate immune system. The Conference will gather established experts who are leaders in the field together with junior scientists, postdocs and graduate students to share discoveries and exchange ideas. Some poster presenters will be selected for short talks. Abstracts are invited from the international community for all these topics.

Specific themes that will be covered include:

  • Pattern recognition receptors
  • cell death mechanisms
  • host-microbe interactions
  • interactions with adaptive immunity
  • pathophysiology in inflammatory diseases

The conference has limited participation to ensure an intimate format and collegial atmosphere that will maximize brainstorming and scientific interchange.

This conference is organised within the framework of the Flemish Training Network Life Sciences (FTNLS)
This symposium is further sponsored by the Methusalem grant awarded to Prof. Peter Vandenabeele.
