Irish Society for Immunology
Annual Meeting 2022
The Irish Society for Immunology Annual Meeting returned September 1st and 2nd 2022 to Maynooth University.
The Irish Society for Immunology 2 day annual meeting was back after a 2 year break due to COVID-19 restrictions. The event was hosted for the first time in the newly opened Technology Society and Innovation Building at Maynooth University.
The meeting drew over 220 participants from all Institutions across Ireland, ranging from research assistants, PhD students, postdocs to established Principal Investigators. The focus was on Barrier Immunity, Host-Pathogen Interactions, Clinical and Translational Immunology and Immune Signalling.
Flash talks (3 and 5 minute) along with a poster session allowed early career researchers to present their work. We also included for the first time Childcare Bursaries to help those attending cover the cost of childcare if needed. International speakers included Prof. Teresa Lambe from University of Oxford, Prof. Adrian Liston from Cambridge University and Prof. Molly Ingersoll from Cochin Institute in France.
It was a great pleasure to award Prof. Clare Lloyd from Imperial College London with the European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS) Immunology Letters Lecture Award on Friday who presented her research on pulmonary allergies just before we closed the conference on Friday.
