The British Society for Immunology’s Lymphocyte Immunosenescence and Differentiation Group is pleased to bring you ‘Multi-cellular differentiation-related changes in the immune system during ageing‘ taking place on 27-28 September 2018 at the Academy of Medical Sciences in London.


This meeting will bring together world leaders in cell differentiation and immunosenescence, including eight invited speakers:

Prof Cornelia Weyand, Stanford University, USA

Dr Daniela Frasca, University of Miami, USA

Dr Valery Krizhanovsky, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel

Dr Anis Larbi, A* Institute Singapore

Prof Mieke Boots, University of Groningen, Netherlands

Prof Janet Lord, University of Birmingham, UK

Prof Arne Akbar, University College London, UK

Dr Sian Henson, Queen Mary’s University of London, UK

There is also the opportunity for eight researchers to present their work chosen from submitted abstracts. Time will be prioritised for interaction and discussion between junior and senior immunologists to facilitate future collaboration aimed at harnessing divergent expertise to study immune cell differentiation and ageing in the UK.

Delegates are encouraged to submit abstracts on their work for presentations at the meeting. Abstracts of a maximum of 250 words should be submitted to

The deadline for abstract submissions has been extended until Friday 31 August 2018.
