Abstract deadline approaching: Innate Immunity 2016



This is the FIRST live streamed only, three day professional conference discussing Innate Immunity.  We have gathered together invited speakers from around the world, who you might not otherwise have access to.


Early registration discount ends – 20th September 2016

Oral abstract submission deadline – 20th October 2016

Poster submission deadline – 1st November 2016

“Innate Immunity: The first line of defence” has an open abstract session: Abstracts can be submitted on any subject related to Innate Immunity

Abstract Submission  Poster Submission

This  event will discuss the increasingly appreciated role of the innate immune system in initiating and directing immune responses.

 Meeting description:  This cross-disciplinary event will discuss recent findings related to the role of the innate immune system in pathogen recognition, effector function and activation of adaptive responses.  We will also address its importance in aberrant immune function, and consider the potential of therapeutic targeting of the innate immune system to improve health outcomes.

Who Should Attend:  Those interested in the role of the innate immune system in health and disease, and in therapeutic strategies to modulate the innate immune response would all benefit from attending.  This includes research scientists and academics, physicians and clinicians, and those who work within the industry

We encourage questions, discussion and debate and have a relaxed atmosphere which generates maximum interaction online.

After registration you will be connected to an online networking site where you will be able to have discussions with all participants of this event, before, during and after the meeting.

The event will be recorded and available for all registered delegates up to a month after the event.  So if you can’t manage all the days, or the different time zones, you can still have access to the full event.

Why attend a Live Streamed Event

As Euroscicon are the first to run virtual Life Science conferences we thought you might be unfamiliar with the benefits of attending.  

Please view these meetings as you would a usual conference,  but with the following advantages

  • Less travel time means more time for you at work and at home`
  • Access the whole event from the com­fort of your own home or office
  • Reg­is­tra­tion Fees are much less than a “bricks and mor­tar” event
  • No expen­di­ture on hotels and sundries
  • Con­nect with a larger and more global audi­ence, many of whom may have not attended due to cost and travel constraints
  • Catch up on missed talks in the evening or your free time
  • No flight delays, pass­port con­trol or secu­rity checks
  • Jug­gle work demands with con­fer­ence attendance
  • Dip in and out of talks with­out being noticed
  • No pack­ing and unpack­ing and won­der­ing whether your lug­gage will make it through to the other side
