About the Conference

The aim of this international conference series is to provide an interactive platform for the exchange of new concepts, ideas and data between immunologists interested in ILCs and innate lymphocytes in health and disease. ILCs are recently described tissue-resident cells increasingly implicated across a spectrum of diseases, including in humans. New methods, some rapidly evolving, have enabled a deeper look at the role of these cells in tissue health. Unappreciated plasticity, migration and functions are being uncovered every day, necessitating a timely update of standard methods, technologies and functional assays required for purification, imaging and analysis of ILCs with unprecedented detail, including single-cell sequencing and multi-parameter protein-based approaches. Attendees will learn the state-of-the-art current understanding of these fascinating cells from world experts in all facets of their biology.
