Leopoldina-Symposium – Environmental Education of the Immune System in Health and Disease
29. / 30. August 2019
The immune system is shaped by a highly diverse spectrum of stimuli, such as the local microenvironment of the immune cells, nutrition, the microbiota and the lifestyle of the host organism. Dysbalance of this fine-tuned system often results in severe, chronic inflammatory diseases, compromising 5 -10 % of the population.
The Leopoldina-Symposium will include five Sessions covering the following topics:
– The Immune System in Context of its Body
– Immune Imprinting by Nutrition and Lifestyle
– Education of the Immune System by Microbiota
– Pathogens and Chronicity
– Therapies – One Health
The Symposium is jointly organized by the Leibniz ScienceCampus Chronic Inflammation and the Leibniz Network Immune Mediated Diseases, a consortium of currently 14 institutes of the Leibniz Association (https://www.leibniz-gemeinschaft.de/forschung/leibniz-netzwerke/leibniz-netzwerk-immunvermittelte-erkrankungen).
The symposium is free of charge. Registration deadline is August 22, 2019.
