Mucosal Immunology Workshop

The Mucosal Immunology workshop focuses on how the immune system functions at the barrier between host and environment and includes a wide variety of topics including allergy, autoimmunity, inflammation, cancer, immunity, and infectious diseases of the mucosal tissues. This year’s program will include a joint session with a focus on innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) in mucosal immunity, and presentations by the world-renowned mucosal immunologists Professor Richard Blumberg and Professor Maria Rescigno. The MISIG workshop is sponsored by the international Society of Mucosal Immunology. So, if you have an interest in anything to do with immunology of the mucosa, be sure to register for the MISIG at this year’s ASI meeting.

Infection and Immunity Workshop

The Infection and Immunity Special Interest Group runs an annual workshop in conjunction with the ASI annual scientific meeting. This year’s workshop (to be held on Monday 27th November) will include two joint sessions with the Mucosal Immunology Special Interest Group workshop, featuring a special innate lymphoid cell mini-symposium (organized by Fernando Souza-Fonseca-Guimaraes and Nick Huntington). We already have a fantastic line up of confirmed international and national speakers, and there will be plenty of speaking opportunities for early- and mid-career researchers. So if you have an interest in infection and immunity-related research, please be sure to register for the workshop and tick the box to have your abstract considered for an oral presentation.

Tumour Immunology Workshop

The Tumour Immunology Group runs an annual workshop in conjunction with the ASI annual scientific meeting. This year’s workshop (to be held on Monday 27th November) will include sessions ranging from basic understandings of the cancer – immune system interface through to translational models and clinical trials of novel immunotherapies. We have a fantastic line up of international and national speakers, and there will be plenty of speaking opportunities for students and early- to mid-career researchers.

Postgraduate Workshop

This year’s Postgraduate workshop (to be held on Monday 27th November) is focused on career development. Hear some of our leading scientists discuss their career path, and what they look for when hiring scientific staff. Participate in an interactive career panel session discussing: A PhD in immunology-what is it good for? There will also be sessions on CV, grant and fellowship writing-providing tips and advice to help you with your next applications. So if you want to stand out from the pack, need advice on navigating the post-PhD world or you’re just not sure what to do next, make sure you register for this session.
