Welcome to London 2017!

The World Congress in Inflammation will come to London for the first time in 2017 for the world’s most influential meeting for inflammation researchers.

Hosted in London, the Congress will be located in one of the best connected cities in Europe, boasting a proud history of scientific innovation and discoveries in inflammation. Many of the world’s most famous innovative thinkers have lived and worked in London including Peter Medawar, James Black and Paul Nurse and many famous inflammation researchers including Rod Flower, John Vane, and other IAIS lifetime awardees.

The biennial Congress is the pinnacle for the growing number of Societies within the IAIS, and others who attend our Congress, and represents a key opportunity to share knowledge across borders and professional disciplines as we work towards a common goal of improving the understanding and control of inflammatory diseases.

The Congress Scientific programme will present the best in inflammation science from distinguished researchers from across the globe. Covering key topics from across the spectrum of inflammatory mechanisms and therapeutic areas with a specific focus on inflammation in ageing and cancer. The Congress is the best place to build skills and knowledge through hearing the latest topics in the field. The Congress venue, the Hilton London Metropole Hotel is located close to Paddington station and major shopping and entertainment areas.

It is the perfect site to explore many of London’s famous landmarks when there is space in between busy congress schedules. Travel around London is very easy with the extensive underground system and the famous red buses and black taxis. ,

I look forward to welcoming you to the 13th World Congress where we will continue our mission to promote inflammation science.
