6th Symposium & master classes on Mucosal Immunology: Cells living on the edge

Thursday 8 & Friday 9 October, 2015

The Erasmus Postgraduate School Molecular Medicine has two main activities: (1) the organization of education for postgraduate students, and (2) the stimulation of collaboration between departments with a particular focus on translational research.

As a continuation of five prior very successful Symposia and workshops on Mucosal Immunology, organised by the Erasmus Postgraduate School Molecular Medicine in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2013, a 6th Symposium and workshops will be held in October 2015.

The committee has invited nationally and internationally leading scientists to give keynote lectures regarding mucosal cytokine responses and activation of innate and adaptive immunity. In particular, we welcome:

 William Agace
 Judy Allen
 Andreas Diefenbach
 Esther de Jong
 Claire Lloyd
 Kevin Maloy
 Reina Mebius
 Martijn Nawijn

On Thursday October 8th a symposium with plenary lectures will be held at the Erasmus MC.  Based on the previous symposia we expect up to 100 or more attendees from all over the Netherlands and Belgium.  On Friday October 9th workshops are held in which all attending PhD candidates and post-docs are invited to present their own work. In these sessions, the presented data will be discussed under the guidance of the keynote speakers and one staff scientist from our research school.

A comprehensive reader consisting of recent papers on the Mucosal Immune System will be issued before the start of the meeting.

The organizing committee:

Rudi W. Hendriks, Pulmonary Medicine, Erasmus MC Rotterdam
Janneke N. Samsom, Laboratory of Pediatrics, division Pediatric Gastroenterology, Erasmus MC Rotterdam
Frank L. van Vliet, managing director Erasmus Postgraduate School MolMed, Erasmus MC

Venue October 8th and 9th: Erasmus MC
