Mapping Exposure-Induced Immune Effects: Connecting the Exposome and the Immunome

Launch of the EXIMIOUS Symposium series

11 June 2021

In case the news didn’t reach you yet, next Tuesday, 15 June 2021 we’ll be launching our very own EXIMIOUS Symposium series! Register now and join us online at 16:00 – 18:00 (CET) for the first EXIMIOUS Symposium “Exposome-immunome interactions: A broad introduction”.

As part of the EXIMIOUS project we will periodically organise topical symposia (webinars) covering topics related to environmental and occupational exposures and measurements, exposure and immunity, and gene-immune-environment interactions. This first EXIMIOUS Symposium will explore key aspects of the exposome-immunome interactions, providing a broad introduction to the topic and aiming to foster an interactive and constructive exchange. Our invited guest speakers will present their latest research, covering exposome-immunome interactions at different stages of life, starting from early life and moving on to environmental and occupational settings. A dedicated time for Q&A will follow each of the three presentations.

Programme EXIMIOUS Symposium “Exposome-immunome interactions: A broad introduction”:
