LACI SATELLITE MEETING

 

5th Luminy Advanced Course in Immunology - 14-16 January 2013
Macrophages and Dendritic Cells: Partners in Crime.

As an adjunct to the EMBO workshop and taking place just before it, the LACI (Luminy Advanced Course in Immunology) is intended for students and post-doctoral fellows. Its goal is to provide an in-depth review of current advances and trends relating to the topic of the EMBO Workshop. The LACI meeting is limited to 30 participants with 13 invited speakers to provide an environment conducive to informal exchange and discussion. This year's course is organized around lectures, poster sessions and tutorials and is devoted to the relationship between macrophages and dendritic cells in inflammation and immunity.
