EMBO Workshop - Lymphatic Tissues and Germinal Centres in Immune Reactions

03.07.2024 - 05.07.2024 Galway

About the Workshop

Antibody mediated-immunity is essential for health. The generation of long-lived high-quality humoral immunity is orchestrated in secondary lymphoid tissues through complex cellular interactions and communication. B cells specific for foreign antigens collaborate with follicular helper T cells and stromal cells to form germinal centres (GCs). Here, GC B cells affinity mature their antibodies and generate memory and antibody-secreting plasma cells. These responses ultimately shape adaptive immunity and thereby help protect us from infections and disease. This meeting is aimed at uniting world experts and young researchers in an intimate environment, facilitating debates of the key issues in our field and the future directions required. The meeting will cover various important topics including germinal centre selection mechanisms, vaccination biology, immune cell differentiation, auto-antibody generation and regulation by the tissue microenvironment.

This EMBO Workshop is held in the historic city of Galway, The Republic of Ireland. Galway is a small, vibrant city rich in culture, music, restaurants and social venues.

About EMBO Courses and Workshops

EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).

Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
