The 2016 Immunosuppression Summit: 15th – 17th March 2016



 This International Immunosuppression Summit will bring together scientists to discuss the problems associated with natural and induced immunosuppression.

This is an International Life Science Community Internet event

Location: Online

Who Should Attend:  

This summit will interest those working in drug design and discovery, physicians and clinicians, research scientists and academics, and those who work within the industry.


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.
