Neuroimmunology Day

15 December 2023 | 10 h 15 min - 17 h 00 min

After a somewhat confidential start in the early 1980s, neuroimmunology, as the scientific field that addresses interactions between the immune and nervous system, has become mainstream with numerous studies showing that neuroimmune interactions and mechanisms are relevant for behavior and physiology in health and disease (including metabolic and mental disorders). On Dec 15, a full day will be dedicated to presentations and discussions by players in the field to provide an overview of where things stand now and where they may be headed in the near future. This workshop is organized by Jan Pieter Konsman and Thomas Pradeu.
