EDUCATIONAL DAY TOPICS

The first day of the meeting will be dedicated to our  highly acclaimed educational programme with further sessions throughout the meeting with  world-class teachers bringing high quality educational lectures and interactive sessions which will be of great benefit to  students, trainees  and established clinicians and scientists with practical and relevant up-date  current insights into pathogenesis, recognition and management of immune disorders. 


Topic will include:

  • Lymphoproliferation in PIDs

  • Chronic infections in PIDs

  • Next generation sequencing - Where do we stand, what is next?

  • Primary Immunodeficiencies and NF-KB  signalling pathway

  • What is CVID?

  • Complement deficiencies

  • Pearls and pitfalls of genetic testing in PIDs

  • Treatment options for PIDs

  • Update on HLH
