1st International Symposium: Immune Evasion in Malignant & Chronic Infectious Diseases

November 21 – November 23, 2019

Dear friends and colleagues,

We kindly invite you to the 1st International Symposium: Immune Evasion in Malignant & Chronic Infectious Diseases organised by the Collaborative Research Center 1292. The central aim of the CRC is to perform an unprecedented comparative analysis of the various immune evasion mechanisms in cancers and in chronic infections to obtain a detailed map of common and disease-specific immune escape checkpoints.

In our 1st International Symposium we would like to show the most recent and promising results of the consortium. In addition, we are pleased to present outstanding international experts relevant to our research area. To prepare our consortium for the next funding period we also invite scientists from Mainz to present their current research and to give an outlook of potential interactions with the CRC. Furthermore, our young scientists will get the opportunity to illustrate their current results in a poster session.

We are looking forward to seeing you.

Best regards

Hansjörg Schild, Tobias Bopp, Simone Fulda, Matthias Theobald, Ugur Sahin, Ari Waisman,
Niels Lemmermann & the CRC1292 IRTG.
