XVII Congress of the Polish Society of Experimental and Clinical Immunology

28-30 May 2020

Medical University of Białystok, Poland

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Board of the Polish Society of Experimental and Clinical Immunology and the Białystok Chapter of the Society, we would like to cordially invite you to the 17th Congress of the Polish Society of Experimental and Clinical Immunology which will take place in Białystok on 28-30 May 2020, on the premises of the Medical University of Białystok. The venue of the Congress will be the historical Branicki Palace and the state-of-the-art Euroregional Center of Pharmacy, located in the heart of the city and surrounded by a beautiful garden and a park.

Together with acclaimed experts from Poland and abroad, and all attendants of the Congress, we will create an interesting scientific programme including the latest developments in basic and clinical immunology tackling such issues as primary and secondary immunodeficiencies, congenital immunodeficiency, immunoregulation, autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases, cancer immunology and immunotherapy, immunology in personalized medicine, reproductive immunology, immunology of aging, immunotoxicology, but also the history and the future of Polish immunology. The programme will also include sessions on allergology and the methods of allergen immunotherapy".

Our Congress will be graced with the attendance and a special session of the Board of European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS) which gathers virtually all European immunological societies.

We are looking forward to your active participation in the Congress and interesting propositions for lectures and poster presentations. We hope that the Congress will be a successful and productive event of high scientific value, and will have a positive impact on the progress in immunology.

Staying in the capital of the Podlasie region will allow you to learn he local culture and customs, and experience exceptional hospitality during a variety of social functions and events accompanying the Congress.
