Stemness, Regeneration and Immunity: from development to therapy

  • Event date: -
  • Start time: 10:00 End time: - 17:00
  • Event Location: The Francis Crick Institute
  • Event Type: Symposia

This meeting will bridge stem cell biology and immunology: interaction with epithelia is crucial for shaping lymphoid organs and regulate their functions from early development through to postnatal and adult life. The symposium also aims to define pathways and mechanisms of regeneration that might lead to new therapies. The meeting will bring together internationally-renowned key experts who adopt different but complementary approaches, spanning basic science through to the clinical application of cell therapies.

Plenary lectures will be followed by short and flash talks selected from the submitted abstracts to give early career researchers opportunities to present their work.

Poster sessions and networking will give attendees ample opportunities to present their work and to interact with scientists working across these disciplines. Prizes will be awarded for the best short, flash talk and poster.

We plan to run this as a hybrid event with an in person audience at the Crick joined by online attendees.
