Cell Symposia: The Neuro-Immune Axis
September 11–13, 2022 | Altis Grand Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal

At present, we intend to host the Cell Symposia: The Neuro-Immune Axis onsite in Lisbon, Portugal, from 11th -13th September 2022, to best facilitate in-person networking and learning.

However, as the future situation regarding international travel remains uncertain, rest assured that should this conference be unable to take place in person, it will be changed to an online event. Should this change need to occur we will let you know as soon as we are able and your registration will be carried over to the online event, with a refund of any difference in registration fee. Should this not be appropriate for you at the time, we will be able to refund your registration, minus a cancellation fee. Should the organizers cancel the conference, you will be entitled to a full refund. Please see here for our full cancellation policy.

Building on the collaborative research and discussions that were at the center of the 2017 and 2019 meetings, the goal of this symposium is to explore the interface between the nervous and immune systems during development, homeostasis, and disease. The meeting will examine the mediators, mechanisms, and implications of neuro-immune crosstalk in the central and peripheral nervous systems. It will also cover emerging areas such as neuro-immune interactions in plasticity within the brain, complex social behaviors and cancers. This meeting will bring together researchers from across the fields of neuroscience and immunology to facilitate discussion of exciting new concepts and developments in both fields.
