Macrophages and dendritic cells in infection and inflammation - EMDS Annual Conference

The 34th conference of the European Macrophage and Dendritic cell Society (EMDS) entitled "Macrophages and Dendritic Cells in Infection and Inflammation: Molecular Mechanisms and Roles in Pathology will take place on 18-20 June 2020 at the Lakeside Lecture Theatres at Aarhus University in Denmark

  • Macrophages/DCs in infection
  • Signaling in macrophages/DCs
  • Macrophage/DC polarisation and subpopulations
  • Cytokine biology in myeloid cells
  • Tissue-specific phenotypes & functions of macroph./DCs
  • Immunometabolism of macrophages/DCs
  • Trained immunity in myeloid cells
  • Tumor-associated myeloid cells

This meeting aims to bring together scientists in macrophage/dendritic cell research with adjoining fields of such as transcriptomics, infectious disease, and structural biology, to present and discuss cutting edge research in this broadening field. A key goal of the meeting is to promote communication between world class scientists and a young generation of researchers, ranging from molecular immunologists to clinical scientists, and thus to facilitate the translation of new basic discoveries.

The program is based on 8 scientific sessions in which 24 internationally renowned scientists speakers will present their latest cutting edge research findings. This will be complemented by ample opportunities for young researchers to present their most exciting unpublished data to a strong international audience, either as short talks or in lively poster sessions. Apart from the outstanding scientific program, our meeting will provide opportunities to meet colleagues, build networks, and establish future collaborations.
