Welcome to the

9th World Immune Regulation Meeting

with special focus on Development and Maintenance of Immune Tolerance and Role of Tissues in Immune Regulation

18 - 21 March 2015 in Davos, Switzerland

As ever, immune regulation is the hottest issue in basic and clinical sciences. There is no doubt that we need to get together and share our new findings in an inspiring environment. With an outstanding list of speakers in this field, WIRM will become one of the key scientific event of the year 2015, being big enough to learn from other disciplines and small enough to personally meet the experts.
