2022 Summer Conference on Innate Immune Memory in Cluj-Napoca, Romania
Added on 27 juli 2022

From 7-8 September this year (2022), the Radboud university medical center organises the 3rd Summer conference on Innate Immunology in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. There is a great line-up of invited speakers who will disseminate exciting new results covering a wide range of directions in innate immunology. In addition,  invited young investigators will present their data in short talks.

We will be hearing from Zoltan Fehervari (Senior editor at Nature) on how to publish a good paper. 

We are now inviting you to register and submit your abstract for additional short talks or poster sessions, or to just register.
