Description

Focusing on broad industry efforts since 1995, over 1,200 international research scientists have attended Strategic Research Institute's Inflammation & Immune Diseases series - an area that will review emerging drugs with significant market potential.

This year's conference program progresses through two full days of unique scientific presentations, the first day as a general plenary, with the second day tracked into a) inflammatory and b) immune diseases which will address key issues and complexity in finding new treatments.

The Inflammation & Immune Diseases World Summit is the largest meeting of its kind and has been organized to bring together the entire community of immunology & inflammatory researchers for the first time, as they will review many of their programs intended to generate next generation drugs.
