Welcome Message

from Dr. Saeid Namaki, Chairman of the 14th International Congress of Immunology and Allergy

On behalf of the International Union of Immunological Societies and Iranian Society for Immunology and Allergy, it is my great pleasure to invite you to Tehran in April, 2018 for the 14th International Congress of Immunology and Allergy (ICIA2018). As the largest meeting in the field of immunology and allergy in Iran, the ICIA2018 is an event which is held biannually.

The theme of the congress is "major breakthroughs and advances in immunology" covering all fields of immunology, ranging from innate and adaptive immunity to emerging diagnostic and therapeutics.

With the participation of invited speakers and chairs from all over the world, the opportunity for discussing science and forming new collaborations have been offered. Front runners in the fields of basic, clinical and diagnostic immunology with keynote lectures will present discoveries in fundamental immunology and its relation with diagnostic and therapeutic promises to overcome challenges arising from the connection of fundamental and translational sciences.

By enjoying ICIA2018, the chance for visiting the research institutes in the fields of immunology. Besides social interactions and networking, do not miss the opportunity of discovering many faces of our amazing Tehran and the countryside. Explore landmarks of the city including Milad tower, Tajrish bazaar, Valieasr Street and Tehran bazaar. Visit National Jewelry Treasury, Golestan palace, Niavaran palace complex and many other museums and mouments of Tehran, which are of interest at all times. And finally do not forget to allocate time for relaxing in Tabiat bridge, Darband and Jamshidieh stone garden which are paradises in the middle of Tehran. You can also travel to other cities and see the wonders of ancient Persia, modern Iran and the natural beauty.

We very much look forward you in Tehran in 25-28 April 2018, in which we will do our best to make the 14th International Congress of Immunology and Allergy as the most memorable scientific event for you.
