  • Trained immunity in myeloid cells
  • Tumor-associated myeloid cells

The European Macrophage and Dendritic Cell Society (EMDS)

Each year the EDMS is holding an annual 2 day-meeting somewhere in Europe. The meetings are attended by 150-200 scientists from all over Europe and from overseas.

The meetings are run by individuals that volunteer for that task. Therefore every meeting has its specific flavour and thematic emphasis that is determined by the local organizing committee in collaboration with members of the EMDS council.
