Second Announcement EMIG 2010
The 7th European Mucosal Immunology Group meeting (EMIG)-2010 will be
held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 29 September – 2 October 2010
at the Royal Tropical Institute.
This meeting is intended to bring together basic scientists and clinicians
in the field of mucosal immunology with a particular focus on
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and celiac disease. The topics of
the meeting will cover the mucosal milieu, bacteria-host interactions,
innate and adaptive immunity, balance and imbalance in the mucosal
immune response and infectious diseases. There will be special
emphasis on current and future therapeutic approaches.
It is becoming clear that knowledge of the basic mechanisms
pertaining the regulation of mucosal immune responses will shed light
on complex disorders affecting mucosal tissues such as inflammatory
bowel disease, celiac disease and cancer and lead to new therapeutic
approaches. With this meeting we hope to bring together leader
scientists in the field of mucosal immunology for stimulating discussions
on the advancements of the field.
