Meeting Report (PDF format)
It is our great pleasure to host the 12th International Symposium on Molecular Cell Biology of Macrophages 2003. The Japanese Society for Molecular Cell Biology of Macrophages was founded in 1991 in order to promote basic science as well as clinical research on macrophage biology. This meeting has been held annually and made a large contribution to the world-wide advance of this research field.
This year's meeting will address the three focused themes of "Role of macrophages/DC in allergy and autoimmune diseases", "Role of spleen in the host defence", and "Trafficking of macrophages and DCs and immune responses". The symposium will last two full days and consist of lectures by invited speakers followed by extended discussions. We hope to create a platform of mutual interactions and friendship among all speakers and attendants from abroad and Japan during the meeting. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy the symposium and Utsunomiya.
