Role of Tissues in Immune Regulation"

18 - 21 March 2012
Congress Center
Davos, Switzerland

Dear friends and colleagues
We are pleased to inform you that the abstract submission of WIRM-VI has started.
Submit your abstract as soon as possible and take the advantage of the reduced early registration fee.
This year we will be able to provide 10 travel grants with free registration and EUR 300.- for travel, which will be given based on the quality of the submitted abstract.

Travel grant winners will be announced in February 2012.

The main topics for WIRM-VI are the following:
Basic Mechanisms
Innate immune response receptors
Dendritic cell subsets & immune regulation
B cell subsets & immune regulation
NK cells and NK-T cells
Transcriptional regulation of immune tolerance and reactivity
Development of effector & regulatory T cells
T and B cell memory and immune regulation
Th17 cells functions & effector mechanisms & interaction with other cells
Chemokines & receptors in peripheral tolerance
Apoptosis in the regulation of immune responses
Mechanisms of immune privilege
The role of microRNAs in immune regulation and effector functions
Immune regulatory mechanisms related to resident tissue cells
From mice to human: immune regulation in humanized mice models

Focus on clinical application, drug discovery
and novel biotechnological developments

Hygiene hypothesis in immune regulation
Regulatory and effector T cell subsets and cytokines: From bench to bedside
Tolerating the nervous system: a delicate balance
Immune response to parasites
Tumor antigen-specific immune regulation
Immune tolerance and autoimmunity
Immune tolerance in allergy and asthma
Immune regulation in organ transplantation tolerance
Experimental models of inducing and breaking peripheral tolerance
Mucosal tolerance & intestinal homeostasis
Development of novel vaccines and drugs
Immunomodulation via cytokines
We are very happy about the great interest of sponsors and scientists from different countries.
