10 July, 2018 - IIT Immunology Symposium with Pears Lecture

Time: 09:00:00 - 18:00:00

The UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation (IIT) is hosting its annual science symposium on Tuesday 10 July 2018 at the Royal Free Hospital. International leaders will present the latest research developments in molecular and cellular aspects of cancer immunity, autoimmunity and anti-viral immunity. The symposium will consist of sessions covering transplantation, genomics and immune development. The highlight will be the Pears Lecture which, this year, will be given by Shimon Sakaguchi from Osaka University. The conference provides an opportunity for scientists and clinicians to meet and learn about how research leads to novel therapies for patient benefit. The full programme will be released shortly. Submitted abstracts will be selected for presentation and prizes will be awarded for the best oral presentation and the best poster. Please see link below for more details on the abstract competition.
