World Immune Regulation Meeting XIII - WIRM 2019

13th World Immune Regulation Meeting

As ever, immune regulation is the hottest issue in basic and clinical sciences. With an outstanding list of speakers in this field, WIRM will be one of the key scientific event of the year 2019, being big enough to learn from other disciplines and small enough to personally meet the experts.

Special Focus: Immune Activation, Effector Functions and Immune Tolerance with a special focus on Autoimmunity.


Basic Mechanisms:

- Innate immune response

- Dendritic cell subsets and immune regulation

- B cell subsets and immune regulation

- NK cells and NK-T cells

- Eosinophils, Basophils and Neutrophils

- Innate lymphoid cells

- Transcriptional regulation of immune responses

- Development of effector and regulatory T cells

- T and B cell memory and immune regulation

- Chemokines and receptors in immune response

- Apoptosis in the regulation of immune responses

- The role of microRNAs in immune regulation and effector functions

- Role of epithelial cells and other resident tissue cells

- Epigenetic mechanism of immune response

- Metabolism and immunity

Focus on clinical application, drug discovery and novel biotechnological developments:

- Hygiene hypothesis in immune regulation

- Regulatory and effector T and B cell subsets and cytokines: from bench to bedside

- Immune response to parasites

- Tumor antigen-specific immune regulation

- Autoimmunity

- Neuroimmunology

- Allergy and asthma

- Organ transplantation

- Experimental models of inducing and breaking peripheral tolerance

- Mucosal tolerance and intestinal homeostasis

- Development of novel vaccines and drugs

- „Biologicals“ and immune response

- Cellular therapies including stem cell therapies

- Regenerative medicine and immune system

- Precision Medicine
