As part of the EXIMIOUS project we will periodically organise topical symposia (webinars) covering topics related to environmental and occupational exposures and measurements, exposure and immunity, and gene-immune-environment interactions.
This first EXIMIOUS Symposium will explore key aspects of the exposome-immunome interactions, providing a broad introduction to the topic and aiming to foster an interactive and constructive exchange. Our invited guest speakers will present their latest research, covering exposome-immunome interactions at different stages of life, starting from early life and moving on to environmental and occupational settings. A dedicated time for Q&A will follow each of the three presentations.
