European Society for Reproductive Immunology

Dear friends and colleagues

We hereby invite you to participate in the 15th Conference of the European Society for Reproductive Immunology, which will be held at Comwell Hotel Hvide Hus, Aalborg, Denmark from Tuesday 28th August to Friday 31st August 2018.

The conference is organized in collaboration between Aalborg University and Aalborg University Hospital.

Aalborg, the fourth largest city in Denmark, was the cradle of reproductive immunology research in Denmark; the first international paper in this area was published by scientists from the city back in 1976. Since then numerous reproductive immunology studies have been undertaken in Aalborg and a successful reproductive immunology summer school was held there in 1997.

We have put together a diverse scientific program highlighting the newest and most interesting findings in the basic and clinical branches of reproductive immunology. Young investigators will have a special session to present their studies.

Accomodation will be at the conference venue and in other nearby hotels. The conference dinner will be held at Musikkens Hus (House of Music), which is a beautiful new building of outstanding architecture situated at the habour front in Aalborg. The number of places to the conference dinner is limited so you are advised to book early.

We look forward joining us in the Nordic summer in Aalborg to the ESRI 2018 conference.
