On May 17 2018, the 8th Life Science Symposium will be held in Leiden. The theme of the symposium will be:

Immunotherapy – Enhancing the human defence system.

As the field in curing diseases is rapidly expanding, more therapies are being developed. A large part of these new developments are derived from immunotherapy. The use of immunotherapy instead of, or in combination with, the ‘old-fashioned’ treatments is increasing fast and is therefore a very interesting subject to cover at this symposium.

With this theme, we hope to show students how many new discoveries in this research area are being done. Moreover, we want to show the possibilities within the field of immunotherapy by showing several different techniques. This way, the students can learn a lot about a very new and upcoming field that may be the future in medicine and Life Sciences.
