We look back on a very successful Immuno Valley Conference 2018 which took place on September, 25th. National and international speakers presented the latest scientific breakthroughs, including innovative technologies and promising new products in the field of infectious and inflammatory diseases.
We welcomed over academic and business 120 participants active in the field of Infectious and inflammatory diseases.
The Immuno Valley Annual Conference 2018 started with a retrospective of 10 years Immuno Valley, followed by keynote presentations from prof. Mihai Netea, about Trained immunity and prof. Frederic Rousseau, about targeted protein aggregation.
In addition parallel sessions provided excellent presentations about vaccines, nutrition, alternative therapeutics and diagnostics, given by innovators in public and private organisations: CureVac, Bunyavax, Wageningen University, GlaxoSmithKline, BaseClear, Lallemand Health Solutions, Micreos, TNO, Dopharma, ACTA, Helia Biomonitoring, Eindhoven University of Technology, X-Heal Diagnostics and the Radboud University Medical Center.
Ultimately, through our partnering and networking activities, we facilitated in establishing new valuable connections.
Many thanks to our speakers and participants for a fruitful and very inspiring day.

Record amount of Measles cases in the European Region
The World Health Organization (WHO) reported a dramatic increase in measles cases in 2018. In the first 6 months of 2018, more than 41,000 children and adults in the WHO European Region have been infected with measles, compared with 23,927 cases throughout 2017. This is an exponential increase, which could have been prevented if people go and get their vaccinations in time. As Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO regional director for Europe, said in a statement: ‘Good health for all starts with immunization’.
