This annual conference, established in 1984 is organised by an international committee of renowned Immunologists. In 2024 we celebrate the 25th anniversary of “biologicals” (monoclonal antibodies and Ig fusion proteins) being approved and entering routine use in 1998/1999, for rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease as well as in HER-2 positive breast cancer.

Hosted by the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, the conference is designed to foster and facilitate interactions between a global audience of laboratory scientists, pharmaceutical and biotech scientists and clinicians, all interested in translational research. Over the years, the format has facilitated scientific exchange leading to new collaborations and scientific progress in the translational research space.

We look forward to welcoming you in August.
