Our FAAM-EUROBAT Digital 2020 meeting is currently taking place and we wanted to let you know it’s been an incredible first day of the meeting. Starting in the morning with EUROBAT and followed by the intense afternoon with the first FAAM symposia, faculty and delegates have shared and discussed high level science and strategies how to improve food allergic patients care.

There is still time to join the more than 900 delegates from over 60 countries at the FAAM-EUROBAT Digital 2020 meeting: registrations are and will remain open throughout the whole event. In case you’re already registered but have missed one of today’s sessions, access the platform via the link below and catch-up before we head onto the second day – which promises to be as exciting as today!

See you at FAAM-EUROBAT Digital 2020!




Winter School Digital 2021 – Have you submitted your abstract yet?

The EAACI Immunology Winter School is a meeting that aims to provide young researchers with the opportunity to attend top-level sessions with renowned scientists and, at the same time, interact with their peers and expand their professional networks. We believe that, even more so now, young members of our academy could benefit participating in this meeting where scientific knowledge can be shared safely and interactively discussed. In addition to the top quality scientific programme, a selection of the trademark EAACI Winter School social activities will be delivered in a virtual format!

This week, we have invited keynote lecturer Lydia Lynch (USA) to briefly introduce her lecture and give you a sneak peek of what’s to come in the first digital edition of our Winter School. Submit your abstract now if you want to be part of the selected group of 70 abstracts presenters who will join our meeting.



Until October 21, 2020.

Integration of cellular and systemic immunometabolism: Immune Cells Are What We Eat

 To better understand the immune and metabolic system interaction from a systems level, we study immunometabolism at both the organismal and cell-intrinsic level, which is at an exciting time of convergence. Obesity is an ideal model to study how systemic metabolism controls cellular metabolism and vice versa. Obesity is a global epidemic, and the biggest health and economic burden of obesity are the associated disorders, including immune related consequences like increased risk of infection and cancer”.
