Translational Immunology
Add to calendar

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

Prior to the VIB Conference you can join the Satellite - BIS annual meeting on 25 March 2020.

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"!
