Workshop A

Exploring Immune Education of the Gut During Early Life
13:00 - 16:00

As we strive to understand the causality of disease pathogenesis particularly in infanthood and early life, the role that the gut microbiome plays in educating the immune system has been given increased attention. This interactive workshop will give you the opportunity to have a deep dive into:


  • What healthy immune modulation and induction of immunological tolerance looks like
  • Autoimmune and atopic disease/condition manifestation over the life course
  • The immune-gut microbiome interaction pathways implicated in inflammatory cytokine production
