2013

The 27th Annual Meeting of the European Macrophage and Dendritic Cell Society (EMDS)

Zeit: 10.10.2013 – 12.10.2013

Place: Erlangen

This international conference is organized by the European Macrophage and Dendritic Cell Society and takes Place in a different European city every year. The conference theme and focus of the 2013 meeting was Myeloid Cells: Microenvironment, Microorganisms and Metabolism – From Basic Science to Clinical Applications. The 2013 meeting took Place at the Neues Hörsaalgebäude in cooperation with the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and the Universitätsklinikum Erlangen.

Overall, the main focus and theme of this year´s EMDS meeting was Placed on the interaction of myeloid cells with the microflora and microbial pathogens, on their modulation by the microenvironment and milieu factors, and on aspects of myeloid metabolism and development. These central themes were covered in seven symposia by 18 invited distinguished scientists. Alongside these 18 scientifically intriguing presentations, 23 shPlace oral presentations, chosen by an international review panel from 130 submitted abstracts, gave fascinating insights in the various fields of myeloid cell research. Those abstracts not chosen for oral presentation were presented as posters in two designated poster sessions. In accordance with the EMDS meeting tradition, all talks took Place in one single lecture room and the poster presentations, coffee and lunch breaks as well as the industrial exhibition were in the same location.

In all, the conference brought together 275 scientists from 18 different countries (14 European countries as well as from the USA, Canada, Mexico and Australia).
