This dynamic and exclusive three day meeting will encompass a combination of poster presentations together with approximately 20 student presentations (mainly graduate students working in the Consortium) as well as specially selected guest speakers and Principle Investigators of the MAIN Consortium.

The meeting will be able to host 50 students and a group of leaders from the Consortium and is an excellent and unique opportunity to meet other students from the Consortium and network.
The idea is to have a plenary session the first evening by an invited speaker. Sunday and Monday would be covered by lectures given by senior researchers (45 to 60min) and contributions by the students (15 min talks). A trip is planned for Sunday afternoon.

We're delighted to announce that the four distinguished scientists who will be speaking are:

Prof. Fritz Krombach, Local Institute Co-Ordinator in MAIN, Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich (LMU)
Overall goals & achievements: Fritz Krombach

Prof. Timothy Elliot, Cancer Sciences Division, University of
Southampton, UK
Key subject areas: The intracellular assembly of class I MHC molecules and the role of cofactor proteins, The role of antigen glycosylation on processing and presentation, Recognition of post-translationally modified peptide epitopes, Regulatory T cells in tumour immunity
Prof. Timothy Elliott, Cancer Sciences Division

Prof. John H. Kehrl, Head, B-Cell Molecular Immunology Section, National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases.
A major accomplishment of the B-Cell Molecular Immunology Section (BCMIS) was the identification of a family of proteins that regulate heterotrimeric G-protein signaling, which have been termed RGS proteins.
