Alicante-Winter Immunology Symposium in Health (A-WISH)

Simposio Internacional de Inmunología y Salud

On December 16th and 17th, 2021, the Spanish Society of Immunology (SEI) and the University of Alicante (UA) join forces to organize the first International Symposium on Immunology and Health to be held in the city of Alicante, Spain. This symposium will bring together a group of nationally and internationally recognized immunologists, microbiologists, molecular biologists, epidemiologists, virologists and professionals from other disciplines of the biomedical field, to present and discuss the most recent results of their scientific work. The main objective of this annual symposium is to promote the development and advancement of the study of immunology, infectious diseases and vaccinology, as Life and Health Sciences, as well as to disseminate the development of novel approaches in diagnosis and therapeutics of diseases that involve the immune system.

In the last year, Spain has been one of the countries most affected by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) causing the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This pandemic has had an unprecedented economic, social, health and scientific impact and represents an unparallel challenge in modern history to undertake a world-wide vaccination campaign against an emerging virus for which no previous vaccine existed.

This international symposium aims to address strategies for the COVID-19 response and pandemic preparedness, the development of the vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 and the immunological response to infection and different COVID-19 vaccines.
