Following the ProImmune Global SARS-CoV-2 Expert Symposium which attracted more than 1000 scientists from around the world, we are delighted to announce the next meeting in this exceptional series.

With SARS-CoV-2 having understandably taken most of the research spotlight in recent years, many groups have now returned their focus back to their respective research fields to tackle some of these life-threatening infectious diseases such as Hepatitis, Dengue, Tuberculosis and many others. In this meeting our expert speakers present and discuss key new advancements in our understanding of the molecular and cellular immune response to these infectious diseases as well as novel therapeutic interventions for populations at risk. Don’t miss your chance to hear first hand about these developments and participate in our moderated panel discussion.

By participating in this half-day symposium, you will be inspired by renowned global experts presenting their respective expertise in their research field and discussing their latest insights and what they perceive to be the main challenges still to be overcome for some of these prevalent infectious diseases.
