ESID 2018 Biennial Meeting - Lisbon (Portugal)
Dates are now confirmed and the 18th Biennial ESID Meeting will be held at the Lisbon Congress Centre (Centro de Congressos de Lisboa) from 24 - 27 October 2018.
The Local Organising Committee led by José Gonçalo Marques (ESID 2018 Congress President) is looking forward to welcoming you in 2018. More information will be available on the ESID website end of this year.
2017 may still be a young year, but there are plenty of exciting and challenging events and opportunities for ESID in the year ahead. Preparations are well underway for our special ESID in Focus Meeting in Edinburgh in September which looks set to be a marvellous opportunity to explore the topic of immune dysregulation along with colleagues working in the fields of rheumatology, auto-inflammation and gut and lung disease, which fits so well with the fascinating new insights in our field. The Edinburgh meeting will also provide an opportunity to launch the European Reference Network (ERN) for rare immunodeficiencies, auto-immune and auto-inflammatory diseases (ERN RITA). Read more
