2024 AAAAI Annual Meeting
AAAAI Annual Meeting


Type 2 Immunity in Health and Disease

The Discovery program Type 2 Immunity in Health and Disease will be a three-day fully in-person conference within 2024 AAAAI Annual Meeting from February 22-24 in Washington, DC. The program will feature cutting-edge basic science symposia focused on type 2 immune cells, pathways, and diseases from leading investigators. In addition, the meeting will include ample opportunities to network and to showcase the work of junior investigators through selected short talks, poster sessions, and travel grants. This premier conference focused on mechanistic science in type 2 immunity will connect outstanding clinicians and scientists that work in this area.
