The topics of the plenary sessions as well as the education sessions will be tightly linked to the Conference motto of “Tolerance, Acceptance and Permissiveness”. The local scientific and education committees have identified world renowned speakers that will cover these key concepts in histocompatibility in various sessions. The main themes of the plenary sessions are:

  • Tolerance, acceptance and permissiveness in solid organ transplantation
  • Future perspectives in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
  • Tissue specific tolerance and immunity
  • Bioinformatics, big data and systems biology

With these themes, we are confident to serve the whole of the H&I community that will participate in the EFI 2022 congress.
