Advancing Science: Virtual Immunology Conference

Europe - 9:00 AM Central European Summer Time

Americas - 9:00 AM Central Daylight Time 

Asia-Pacific - 9:00 AM Beijing Standard Time (*September 15)


Advancing Science: A Virtual Immunology Conference

The immune system plays a major role in the onset and progression of different disorders such as autoimmunity, infectious disease, and organ rejection.  Insights into the dynamics of the immune response, inflammation and tissue damage can help researchers better understand how to treat the immune system as well as disease symptoms to avoid systemic hyperinflammation and organ damage.


Join us for this virtual conference that brings together researchers, scientists, and clinicians from around the world to learn and discuss recent advances in immunology research with a focus on the latest topics and trends in infectious disease and organ transplantation.  We will discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on these research areas as well as the role that gene expression profiling, both bulk and spatial, has in future discoveries.


Scientific tracks for this event include: 
•    Infectious Disease Research in a Post-COVID World 
•    Cell Therapy, Tissue Engineering, & More: What Lies Ahead for Organ Transplant 
•    Concurrent Data Analysis Sessions:  GeoMx Tools/GeoScript Hub and the ROSALIND® Platform for nCounter data analysis

 

This free online event allows you to participate within the most convenient time for your location:

Americas: 9:00 AM Central Daylight Time

Europe: 9:00 AM Central European Summer Time

9:00 AM Beijing Standard Time, September 15

The webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing for 6 months post-event.
