Centre of Molecular Inflammation Research (CEMIR) is the organiser of an international conference on molecular mechanisms of inflammation, June 2019.

The conference has a particular emphasis on the regulation of inflammation in sterile and infectious diseases. Experts from basic and clinical inflammation research are brought together to promote exchange across disciplines. The target group is scientists at the group leader-, postdoctoral- and PhD level.

We encourage young investigators from around the world to attend, and to send abstracts.

This is a great opportunity to publicly present your novel findings, and 16 abstracts will be chosen for oral presentation. Award Opportunities: Travel awards and awards for the best poster/presentation are available with support from leading international societies and research journals. Awardees are selected based on scientific criteria (abstract, poster, talk).

Conference host

The conference is hosted by Centre of Molecular Inflammation Research (CEMIR). CEMIR is a Centre of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway.

Be a part of a Special JLB Dedicated Meeting Issue

The Journal of Leukocyte Biology (JLB) will publish a cluster of articles related to topics of the 2019 Conference on Molecular Mechanisms of Inflammation meeting, both review papers ("overviews") and original investigations. Selected contributions will be invited soon after the completion of the conference, and all submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed according to the high standards of the JLB.
