NVVI Winterschool 2024

Dear Immunologists,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the NVVI-DSI Winterschool that we will host December 11 and 12, 2024. It is a custom to organize a Winterschool in the year the European Congress of Immunology is held, which was early September in Dublin, Ireland. The meeting will take place in our usual location in Noordwijkerhout. This will allow us to enjoy a full spectrum of scientific presentations but also enable to (re)connect to friends and collaborators during the social events.

The meeting will comprise presentations from 4 keynote speakers, the van Loghem lecture, 8 invited speakers, Bright-Spark presentations, Thesis award presentation, oral presentations selected from abstracts and posters presentations. All speakers have their current home in the Lower Lands of the Netherlands and Belgium.

We hope you will join us for this Winterschool and enjoy the wonderful Immunology in the Netherlands.

On behalf of the program committee,

Kind regards,

Wilfred Germeraad
Chair of the program committee
