Neutrophil 2020 rescheduled to 2021, with online format due to COVID-19 pandemic


This is the first Neutrophil meeting to take place online and offers the neutrophil community the opportunity to meet and connect virtually.

The local organising committee in the UK have worked hard to put together an exciting program which will include sessions on neutrophil-pathogen interactions, neutrophil niches, neutrophils in disease, the role of neutrophils in resolution and repair, neutrophil trafficking and signalling and neutrophil kinetics and fate.

We are delighted to announce that our keynote lectures will be given by Professor Tanya Mayadas from Harvard University and Professor Mikala Egeblad from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

The plenary and parallel sessions will feature invited talks from 18 internationally renowned neutrophil researchers. Flash talks from early career researchers will be available to view before the meeting, and several of these will be chosen to feature in the main program.

“Neutrophil 2021 – Zoomed In” will allow neutrophil researchers to interact and exchange ideas in a safe environment. You can join us from anywhere in the world using the Whova app – livestreamed sessions will be recorded to accommodate delegates across different time zones, as part of the registration. All times shown in the scientific program are in British Summer Time which is GMT+1. 

We look forward to connecting with you online!
