Copenhagen, Denmark


The International Congress of Mucosal Immunology (ICMI) is the only meeting that focuses exclusively on the interface between the immune system and the environment at mucosal surfaces for our global community. It is the perfect occasion for cross-fertilization between scientists, clinical researchers and industry professionals working on pathways of immunity and inflammation at mucosal surfaces.
