This 2 day meeting will be made up of 6 invited speakers (3 on each day) contributing to the designated symposium as well as free oral and poster communications selected from the submitted abstracts. Both the BMS and UKCAS has kept the ethos of encouraging the participation of research students or early career researchers to this conference either by oral or poster presentation or by supporting attendance at the conference (refer to BMS or UKCAS for conference support that is available to members).

This joint meeting will bring together the world’s leading researchers and clinicians to up date us on the cellular biology of inflammation, imaging inflammation in vivo both experimentally and clinically and its role in various disease processes. We are therefore particularly pleased to welcome our invited keynote speakers who will present their work on the ‘Many Facets of Inflammation.’ Sessions will cover immune cell trafficking across the blood-brain barrier, the contributory role of lymphatics to the inflammatory process and also organ and disease specific inflammatory processes. Therefore this symposium will be of interest to a wide range of scientists : immunologists, neuroscientists, those working on diseases including diabetes, cancer, immunity, neurological disorders and atherosclerosis.
In addition to the designated symposium on inflammation, free oral communications and posters will be selected from abstracts submitted to the conference. Abstracts are invited from researchers working on any aspect of microcirculation or cell adhesion research. A number of prizes will be awarded for best oral and poster communications.
We are pleased to be able to confirm the following speakers.
Professor Jan Nilsson, University of Lund
Atheroprotective immune responses in modulating inflammation and coronary events
Professor Britta Engelhardt, University of Bern
Immune cell trafficking across the blood brain barrier
Dr Joseph Skitzki, Roswell Park Cancer Institute
Imaging tumour angiogenesis intravitally in patients
Dr Mathieu Benoit-Voisin, William Harvey Institute
Inflammation and lymphatics
Professor Yvonne Alexander, Manchester Metropolitan
Endothelial cell progenitors and microvesicles in microvascular function
Professor Paul Kubes, University of Calgary
Visualizing the roles of immune cells during inflammation, infection and tissue injury
