Welcome address

It is with great pleasure and excitement that we welcome each one of you to the 37th Conference of the European Federation for Immunogenetics (EFI), taking place in Geneva from May 20-23, 2024.

As we come together for this significant gathering, it is a testament to our shared commitment to advancing the field of Immunogenetics. Over the four days of the conference, we will have the privilege of engaging with cutting-edge research, insightful discussions, and networking opportunities. The scientific program is designed to cover a spectrum of topics, from the latest technological advancements to the ethical considerations that underscore our work in Immunogenetics. Our distinguished lineup of speakers, experts, and panelists will share their expertise, providing invaluable insights that will inspire and challenge our thinking.

Don’t miss the final state-of-the-art lecture to navigate through our universe and beyond by learning more on exoplanets, a big field of expertise at the University of Geneva.

A conference of this size is not possible to arrange without the support from a number of faithful sponsors, who have prepared very interesting symposia. We sincerely thank all of them for their financial and scientific contributions.

We also hope that you will take time to visit and enjoy the international and peaceful atmosphere of Geneva, the smallest of the biggest capitals, which hosts international organisations, such as the European headquarters of the UN, the Red Cross, the WHO and a dozen of non-governmental organisations.

Hereby, we would like to express our gratitude to the EFI Executive Committee, the EFI Scientific Committee, the EFI Education Committee, to the members of the Organizing Committee as well as our PCO. They have all provided us with invaluable help and support in preparing the scientific program, organizing teaching sessions, evaluating abstracts and preparing the Conference.

Thank you for being an integral part of EFI 2024 in Geneva. Here's to an inspiring and transformative conference!


From the local organizing committee: Sylvie Ferrari-Lacraz and Jean Villard
