Immunology Master Class
WORKSHOP PROGRAMME

Monday, June 22, 2015

For years, probiotic biology has been an unholy alliance between microbiologists and immunologists!! Just what role do ingested probiotics play in relation to immunity? Mucosal immune responses in the gastrointestinal tract are relatively poorly understood by both microbiologists and immunologists.  If we are to fully understand the modulatory effects of probiotics, it is vital that a basic understanding of the gut mucosal immunity be encouraged in all probiotic scientists.  The aim of this workshop is to act as a development master class in gut mucosal immunity for both scientists with a basic knowledge of immunology and as a revision for those with a more comprehensive understanding.
