Due to the Corona pandemic, the NVVI Lunteren Symposium 2021 will be held online on March 25 & 26, 2021.

We are proud to present our program entitled: "Development, function, and derailment of the immune system".

Topics include:

  • therapeutic potential of innate immune cells
  • adaptive immunity in health and disease
  • spatio-temporal regulation of autoimmunity
