Conference: Lisbon ESEB2013 Aug19-24 Transgenerational Immune Priming

5 March, 2013

Dear colleagues,

ESEB abstract submission deadline has been extended to the 8th of March. We invite you to participate in our symposium on “Non- transfer of immunity across generations ” and underlying mechanisms”, including free dinner sponsored by the Volkswagen Foundation for all symposium participants.

Symposium description:
To cope with parasites and pathogens, immunological experience can be transferred across generations also non-genetically, allowing for higher adaptive plasticity. Recent studies suggest that trans- generational immune priming (TGIP) can also be provided by innate defence components and that it is not limited to maternal effects. Both and mechanistic advances in TGIP should be addressed in this symposium in systems ranging from invertebrates to vertebrates.

Invited speakers:

Ben Sadd (ETH Z├╝rich) and Mike Boots (University of Exeter)

We are looking forward to seeing you in Lisbon!
