A joint ERGECD-ITCASS meeting is organized for the first time in Lyon, April 1-3 2020. The reason to join these two meetings is that there is overlap in topics covered and both meetings have a small and informal character.

The Organizing Committee of the 29th ERGECD meeting is happy to invite you in Lyon, France, to tell us about your latest research. The meeting will take place at Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS), Site Monod, Place de l’Ecole, 69007 LYON, Amphithéâtre Mérieux.

ERGECDS meetingd are small informal meetings which gather experts in the field of skin toxicology, immunology and contact dermatitis including chemists, pharmacologists, epidemiologists, clinicians, toxicologists, cell biologists and immunologists.

If you are interested in the ERGECD meeting, please register and send the title of your presentation.

Best wishes

ITCASS (Immunotoxicology and Chemical Allergy Speciality Section of EUROTOX) meetings are small and informal meetings that bring together scientists working in the field of immunotoxicology. During the joint ERGECD-ITCASS meeting, the morning session of the 1st of April will cover the following topics: respiratory allergy, drug allergy/autoimmunity, food allergy, immunosuppression, and developmental immunotoxicology.

Presentations on innovative techniques or predictive test methods for immuntoxicology or allergy are welcome as well. Research in the area of contact allergy can be presented during the ERGECD meeting.
