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

Register for the 2nd EXIMIOUS Symposium

24 January 2022

The second EXIMIOUS Symposium goes live on 3 February 2022! Register now and join us online at 16:00 – 18:00 (CET) to learn more about  “Immune-mediated diseases: an interplay between environment and genetics”.

This second EXIMIOUS Symposium is open to all audiences and will ease into the topic of immune-mediated diseases, providing an introduction to what these are, as well as how the working and living environments surrounding us play a role in their development. Our invited guest speakers will present their latest research on the topic and will be available to answer questions during a dedicated time for Q&A following each of the four presentations.
