2nd Annual Regulatory Cells in Autoimmunity event: Analysing and moderating function

06 Dec 2012 - 06 Dec 2012 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


A balanced immune response is maintained by a network of regulatory cells including T cells, B cells and iNKT cells. How these cells respond to their environment in order to dampen down inflammation and what goes wrong in autoimmunity, will be the focus of this meeting. Novel insights into positive and negative feedback mechanisms that help balance the immune environment will be discussed. It is only by understanding how immune regulation is maintained in health and what goes wrong during autoimmunity that new targets for therapy can be identified. 

We welcome abstract submission for this meeting: selected abstracts will be selected for short oral presentation. 

This event has CPD accreditation and will have a discussion panel session. 

Meeting Chairs: Dr Elizabeth Jury , UCL, London, Professor Robert Barker, University of Aberdeen 

On registration you will be able to submit your questions to the panel that will be asked by the chair on the day of the event
