This is a unique opportunity to participate in a half-day symposium where renowned global experts in the immunology of SARS-CoV-2 will present and discuss their latest thinking and data in vaccine development, basic science, as well as what they perceive to be the main challenges still to be overcome in this pandemic.


There are many on-going national and international vaccine programmes, but it is currently unknown whether or not long-lasting protective immunity will be established. In order to develop effective vaccines and establish appropriate therapeutic interventions for patients with COVID-19, a better understanding and characterization of the immune responses against SARS-CoV-2 has never been more urgent. This meeting is a forum to share knowledge, perspectives and discuss solutions to the complex challenges of SARS-CoV-2 immunity.


Learn from the academic experts as they highlight their discoveries in the context of monitoring immune responses. Share information with like-minded scientist from other organizations and explore new opportunities for collaboration. Discover fresh perspectives and novel ideas to combat the challenges in the rapidly changing field of immunology. Connect with people from different part of the world with similar research interest.
