Between March 21 and 24, 2018, the newly founded European Lupus Society will host the 11th European Lupus Meeting in Duesseldorf, Germany. The Society invites all scientists and clinicians with an interest in Lupus together with all Lupus experts to join the meeting. It promises to be an exciting programme that provides unlimited opportunities for professional development, networking and access to the latest Lupus research. Young fellows are encouraged to participate in the diverse fellow programme. A pre-meeting course will impart Lupus basics, including interactive workshops such as capillary microscopy and immunofluorescence microscopy. Further, we aim to enhance the conference experience by providing a mentor-mentee-programme: Lupus experts will visit the conference together with a group of 3 fellows maximum, where they will present and discuss their highlights.

Therapeutic Tolerance Workshop: First in-human data
In June 2017 the Newcastle University will be hosting the fourth international workshop on Clinical Therapeutic Tolerance (draft programme here). These workshops take place every four years and focus on therapeutic tolerance ‘in the clinic’, across the fields of transplantation and autoimmunity. It is amazing how fast the field has progressed since our first workshop in 2005. In 2017 there will be reports from some of the first concerted international efforts to switch off unwanted immune responses, as well as updates on the relevant science and, of course, our hallmark and light-hearted debates between international opinion leaders. Places for this conference are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. More info here.
