Dear Immunologists,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the NVVI-DSI Winterschool that we will host December 15 and 16. The meeting will take place in our usual location in Noordwijkerhout so that we can meet in person! This will allow us to enjoy a full spectrum of scientific presentations but also enable to (re)connect to friends and collaborators during the social events.
The meeting will comprise presentations from 3 keynote speakers, the van Loghem lecture, 9 invited speakers, Bright-Spark presentations, Thesis award presentation, oral presentations selected from abstracts and posters presentations.
We hope you will join us for this Winterschool to meet up in person and enjoy Dutch Immunology.
