Event Details

The UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation (IIT) is hosting its annual science symposium on Tuesday 13 June 2017 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 cover immune regulation in health and disease. The highlight will be the Pears Lecture which will be given this year by Jason Cyster from the University of California San Francisco.
 
The conference provides an opportunity for scientists and clinicians to meet and learn about how research leads to novel therapies for patient benefit.
