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 became one of the key scientific event of the year 2014, being big enough to learn from other disciplines and small enough to personally meet the experts.

Topics


Basic Mechanisms

Innate immune response

Dendritic cell subsets and immune regulation

B cell subsets and immune regulation

NK cells and NK-T cells

Innate lymphoid cells

Transcriptional regulation of immune responses

Development of effector and regulatory T cells
