The 12th Conference of the European Society for Reproductive Immunology will be held at Magdalen College, Oxford from Monday 21st – Thursday 24th September 2015

Magdalen College, Oxford

The 12th Conference of the European Society for Reproductive Immunology will be held at Magdalen College, Oxford, from Monday 21st – Thursday 24th September 2015. The venue has a special significance for our field as Sir Peter Medawar, considered to be the founding father of Reproductive Immunology, was a student and Fellow of Magdalen. His seminal paper of 1953 has driven research in this area for the last 60 years and although our understanding has changed significantly, his ideas are still relevant today. We have put together a diverse scientific programme which reflects these new concepts and will bring you the latest developments in key areas of research.

Accommodation will be in Magdalen College and the nearby Queen‘s College. The welcome event will be held at the Pitt Rivers Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and a traditional Oxford Gala dinner will be held at Magdalen College – not to be missed. 

The number of places is strictly limited to 160 so you are advised to book early to make sure you do not miss this very special occasion. Book now

Oxford's largest ever study into Varicose veins shows need for surgery is linked to genetics

Varicose veins are a very common manifestation of chronic venous disease, affecting over 30% of the population in Western countries. In America, chronic venous disease affects over 11 million men and 22 million women aged 40–80 years old. Left untreated it can escalate to multiple health complications including leg ulcers and ultimately amputations.
