WELCOME

The XLV Annual Meeting of Sociedade Portuguesa de Imunologia (SPI) will be hosted by FMUC (Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Coimbra), from the 15th to 17th of May, 2019.

This meeting has as its motto “Leaping forward translational immunology” and it will focus on Immune Regulation, Metabolism, Infection, Cancer Immunotherapy and Neuroimmunology. We invited an outstanding panel of speakers and challenged them to bring their contributions both in terms of basic science but also to the clinical practice. We expected to get together researchers, teachers and students with clinicians and pharmaceutical industry to a very prolific meeting in Coimbra.

We welcome your participation.
See you there,
