About the Workshop
Antigen processing and presentation by specialised Antigen Presenting Cells (APCs) initiate, polarise and foster specific immune responses by stimulating lymphocytes: CD8 T cells, which kill infected or tumoral cells, CD4 T cells, which are effectors through death induction and interleukin production, and provide help to humoral and cellular immune responses, and innate lymphocytes with broad microbial or tumoral recognition properties and effector functions.
This EMBO Workshop will cover all aspects of the topic, including: Enzymatic processing and Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) Molecule loading, especially in Cancer Immunotherapy, Non Classical MHC presentation, Cross-presentation, Tickling APCs, Targeting APC-Host-Microbe interactions, MHC class II-restricted presentation, and Cooperation.

About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
