19th IRA International Conference – 2016

Every two years, the Inflammation Research Association (IRA) organizes an International Conference that attracts 200-300 pre-clinical and clinical research scientists working in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and in academia. For more than 40 years the IRA has worked to bring scientists together for the sharing of scientific and technological advances, as well as collegial interaction. The scientific program of the 19th International Conference is designed to reflect the mission of the IRA:

The Inflammation Research Association is a non-profit organization instituted to bring together scientists of all degree and experience levels with an interest in inflammation research, to encourage communication and discussion of scientific and technological advances that can be used to develop new therapeutic agents for the wide diversity of serious diseases with inflammatory processes.
