6e symposium du réseau Monocytes-Macrophages (SoMM2023)

We are delighted to announce the 6th Symposium of the French Network on Monocytes-Macrophages - SoMM2023 - which will be held in Paris, France, on November 24th, 2023.
This event is organized by the  Macrophage Club Îles-de-France (MCI), with support from the National Macrophage Club Community (MaCRO), with the goal of bringing together experts in France working on the biology of monocytes and macrophages.
During this intensive one-day meeting, both junior and senior researchers from academia will present cutting-edge research on monocyte/macrophage biology and their involvement in development, identity, brain function, inflammation, and diseases.
Registration is now open at: with a limited capacity of 150 participants. Registration is free but mandatory.
The deadline for registration and abstract submissions is November 10th, 2023.
We sincerely hope to welcome you to SoMM2023.

SEMINAR CR2TI – Nantes : Julie HELFT – Macrophages and T cell immunity in tumors


Dr Julie HELFT Macrophages and T cell immunity in tumors

Mardi 11 Juillet 2023 à 11H,

Salle Jean Monnet - CR2TI UMR1064
CHU Nantes - Hôtel Dieu

Dr Julie HELFT, Université de Paris - Inserm U1016 - Cnrs UMR8104 - Institut Cochin - Equipe "Phagocytes et Immunologie des Cancers" Titre : “Macrophages and T cell immunity in tumors”. Invitée par le Dr Jérôme Martin

Julie Helft is an INSERM researcher leading the "Phagocytes and Cancer Immunology lab" at Institut Cochin. Her career has been dedicated to decipher how mononuclear phagocytes regulate adaptive immunity. During her PhD (France) and post-doctoral trainings (US and UK), she studied the interactions between T cells and dendritic cells and dendritic cell ontogeny. In 2017, she started a research group at Institut Curie, working on macrophage biology in breast tumors. In 2020, she started her own lab at Institut Cochin which focuses on understanding the role of macrophages in regulating CD8+ T cell infiltration in tumors and on developing new immunotherapies targeting macrophage subsets

Congrès EMDS 2023

VIB is pleased to invite you to the second edition of “Macrophage Biology in the Single-Cell Era" which will be held in conjunction with the European Macrophage and Dendritic cell Society (EMDS) meeting. EMDS2023@VIB which will take place on 18-20 October 2023 in Ghent, Belgium.

This conference will focus on multiple aspects of Dendritic cell and Macrophage biology in health and disease. More than 20 world leaders from academia and industry will present their latest insights in sessions focusing on:

  • Ontogeny and Transcriptional control of DCs and Macs
  • DC & Mac Heterogeneity
  • Macs & DCs in injured tissue, mucosal tissues, and cancer

If you want a complete overview of what's happening now in these exciting fields, join your colleagues at EMDS2023.
