EXIMIOUS scientific meeting 2024: advancing research on exposure-induced immune effects

Barcelona, February 22-23, 2024

In a collaborative effort to propel advancements in understanding exposure-induced immune effects, the EXIMIOUS scientific meeting took place at the esteemed Vall d’Hebron Research Institute in Barcelona from 22-23 February 2024. The event, organised and hosted by the Institute, saw participation of 40 people representing the 16 partners involved in the EXIMIOUS project.

The EXIMIOUS project, funded by the European Union, is dedicated to Mapping Exposure-Induced Immune Effects: Connecting the Exposome and the Immunome. With the ultimate goal of shedding light on the intricate interplay between environmental exposures and immune responses, the project aims to pave the way for more targeted interventions and treatments.

The two-day event was structured into seven sessions, each delving into different aspects crucial to the project’s overarching objectives covering Biological Sample Collection and Analysis, Exposure Assessment, Scientific Presentations and Discussions, Publications and Research Focus, Data Integration, Management and Coordination and Communication, Dissemination, and Exploitation

The EXIMIOUS scientific meeting highlights the collaborative efforts aimed at unraveling the complexities of exposure-induced immune effects. By bringing together the EXIMIOUS partners’ expertise from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, the event not only facilitated knowledge exchange but also laid the groundwork for future innovations in the field.
