The biennial EULAR Course on Immunology took place in Lisbon, Portugal this year from 6th-7th April. This course is designed to bring together young rheumatologists, dermatologists and doctors who have a keen interest in immunology. Rheumatological diseases are very complex and require a integrative approach to ensure that basic scientific findings are translated into the most effective and tolerable targeted therapies. The course was founded to ensure rheumatology clinicians and researchers have an understanding of the immunological background of autoimmune-mediated rheumatic diseases.
This interactive and compact course was composed of specialist lectures on current immunology topics and their relevance to inflammatory diseases, a research workshop and an immunology “speed dating” session which allowed participants to learn about eachother’s areas of interest.
We were delighted that Prof. Ursula Fearon was invited to speak at the course while Dr Trudy McGarry and Megan Hanlon were also in attendance.
