Immunology is the science of the study of the immune system. Over millions of years, the immune system has evolved to preserve the barriers between self and non-self. Through an intricate system of pathways, molecules and cells present in every tissue of the body, the immune system protects us from pathogens. However, a deregulated immune system is also implicated in many diseases such as diabetes, lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and atherosclerosis. By understanding the immune system we can improve vaccination, control autoimmunity and prevent or reverse infectious diseases and cancer.
Sessions & Tracks
Track 1: Auto Immune Diseases
Autoimmune disease is a pathological state arising from an abnormal immune response of the body to substances and tissues that are normally present in the body. Any disease that results from such an unusual immune response is termed an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune disease can affect nearly any part of the body, including the heart, brain, nerves, joints, skin, glands, eyes, muscles, lungs, kidneys, the digestive tract and blood vessels.
Track 2: Tumor Immunology
Tumor immunology defines the interaction among cells of the immune system with tumor cells. The tumor is a main aspect of cancer biology that contributes to tumor initiation, tumor progression and responses to therapy. Tumors are groups of abnormal cells that form lumps. Different kinds of tumors grow and behave differently, depending on whether they are non-cancerous or cancerous.

Mechanism of Tumor Immunity
Tumor Invasion and Metastasis
Track 3: Microbial Immunology
Microbial immunology is the study of the molecular mechanisms used by microbes to cause disease in humans and animals. Bacterial, protozoan, fungal and viral pathogens have developed a wide variety of tools to establish themselves in the host and gain nutrients, which also cause impairment and disease. To understand the complex processes used by microbial pathogens, microbiologists and immunologists employ all the tools of modern molecular biology, genetics, virulence factors, drug interactions, biochemistry and biophysics.
Understanding how microbes cause disease is often the first step toward the development of new vaccines and therapeutics and its cover all aspects of the interrelationship between infectious agents and their hosts.
Innate and Adaptive Immunity
Host interactions and System Biology
Track 4: Immunological Techniques
Immunological techniques are the wide varieties of methods and focused experimental protocols developed by immunologists for inducing, measuring, and characterizing immune responses. The most common immunological methods relate to the production and use of antibodies to identify particular proteins in biological samples. They allow the immunologists to alter the immune system through cellular, molecular and genetic manipulation.
Detection of Antibodies or Antigens
Track 5: Transplantation Immunology
Transplantation means removing something from one position and introducing it in another position. It is the act of transferring cells, tissues, or organs from one place to another place. The inserted tissue or organ is known as graft. Organs which can be transplanted are heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, pancreas, penis, eyes and intestine.

Track 6: Immunohematology
Immunohematology is more frequently known as blood banking is a branch of hematology which studies antigen-antibody reactions and analogous phenomena as they similar to the pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of blood disorders. Immunohematology is a study of the immunology and genetics of blood groups, blood cell antigens and antibodies and specific blood proteins especially important in blood banking and transfusion medicine.
Hemostasis and Thrombosis
Track 7: Innate Immunity and Inflammation
Innate or nonspecific immunity is the defense against infection that can be activated immediately once a pathogen attacks. It protects you against all antigens. These mechanisms include physical barriers such as skin, chemicals in the blood and immune system cells that attack foreign cells in the body. The innate immune system is fundamentally made up of barriers that intention to keep viruses, bacteria, parasites and other foreign particles out of our body or limit their ability to spread and move throughout the body.
Inflammation is the body’s response occurs when tissues are damaged by bacteria, toxins, heat, or any other cause. The aim is being to remove harmful stimuli, including damaged cells, irritants, or pathogens and begin the healing process. These damaged cells release chemicals including histamine, bradykinin and prostaglandins.

Track 8:Classical Immunology
Immunology the branch of life sciences deals with physiology of immune system in disease and infection. The central science of immunology, Deals with functioning and interaction of immune system with the foreign particle. The traditional approach to immunology takes into account the association between immunity, pathogens, and medicine. Immunology alone is the study of response of an organism to antigenic challenge and its recognition of “self”.
Classical immunology deals with the relationship between the body systems, pathogens, and immunity. The immune system is composed of the orchestrated activities of many cell types designed to protect the host from microbes, toxins, and tumor formation.
The immune system being the complex network of human body, understanding it is one of the most accepting challenging. Research in immunology is carried on understanding the mechanisms underlying the human defense centre and to develop immunological drugs. Recent technological innovations in genomics proteomics transformed the research work in immunology. Sequencing of human and other model organism genomes produced increasingly higher volumes of immunological, clinical and functional data. Recent advances in computational biology made easy to understand and organize these large scale data which lead to Computational immunology or Immunoinformatics.
Immunoinformatics is a branch of bioinformatics deals with phylogenetic analysis and modeling of immunological data and problems. It encompasses the study and design of algorithms for mapping potential B- and T-cell epitopes, which lessens the time and cost required for laboratory analysis of pathogen gene products. Using this information, an immunologist can explore the potential binding sites, which, in turn, leads to the development of new vaccines. This methodology is termed reverse vaccinology and it analyses the pathogen genome to identify potential antigenic proteins. This is advantageous to conventional methods from cultivating and extracting the antigenic proteins from a pathogen. Hence it is capable of identifying virulence genes and surface-associated proteins.
Track 10: Immunological Disorders
Immune system is an organized intricate network of cells and organs that protects our body from invading foreign pathogens. This defence centre provides immunity which provides shelter from both disease and infection. Disfunctioning of such supportive centre leads to Immune deficiency, which in turn induce Immunodeficiency disorders. These disorders impair the immune system’s ability to defend the invading foreign cells. They are primarily caused by genetic mutations and are inherited. Secondarily immune deficiencies are acquired from a foreign pathogen like virus or by using immune suppression drugs.
There’s a situation where the immune system attacks the healthy cells within, which induce infection and disease termed as autoimmune disease. These in turn affects many parts of the body. These are more likely to occur in women of American countries.
Track 11: Neuro Immunology
The arena that combines the mighty neuroscience in relation with the brain system that mainly targets neuro-immunology along the interactions with the complex systems during development, response to injuries and to a better understanding of many pathological neurological disorders. This in turn contributes to a greater extent to the vaccinations and pharmacological treatments for several neurological conditions. Recent research has the evidence that immune molecules modulate brain systems differently across lifespan. This topic also entitles the neuro-immune challenges early in life aspects in brain development.
Track 12:Immunological Variability
The host immune system retains immunological memory of B and T cells stimulated by previous infections. Upon later inoculation, a host rapidly builds defense from its memory cells. Each host acquires a unique memory profile based on its infection history.
With respect to the antigenic response of pathogen, the host varies genetically. MHC alleles are highly polymorphic. The germ line genes that contribute to the T cell receptor have some polymorphisms that influence recognition, but the germ line B cell receptor genes do not carry any known polymorphisms.
The immune profiles of host system describe the degree of distribution of specific antigenic variants. Host systems that are previously affected by the pathogen tend to have broader profiles as these are experienced with infections. Maternal antibodies provide short-term resistance to infants, and certain antibody along with TCR provides temporary protection to recently infected hosts. The host system may vary spatially in their prior exposure to different epitopes, creating a spatial mosaic in the selective pressures that favor different antigenic variants.
Track 13:Diagnostics of Immunology
Biological therapy so called immunotherapy is one type of treatment designed to boost the body's natural defenses to fight the cancer. It uses materials either made by the body or manmade to improve, target and restore proper functioning of immune system. This is done in either ways. One by stimulating our own defence centers to act smarter in attacking cancer cells, and the other by providing components of immune system (man-made immune system proteins).
In past few years biotherapy has become a key for curing cancer. Recently, new procedures of immune treatment are being studied for future impact of cancer. Few of them help train the immune system to attack cancer cells specifically.
Track 14:Clinical Immunology
Clinical Immunology has evolved over the past 20 years from a predominant laboratory base to a combined clinical and laboratory specialty. The clinical work of Immunologists is essentially out-patient based and involves primary immunological disorder, allergy, autoimmune rheumatic disease and hypersensitivity with joint pediatric clinics for children with immunodeficiency and allergy and immunoglobulin infusion clinics for patients with antibody deficiency.
On the laboratory front, authorized Immunologists are responsible for directing diagnostic immunology services and perform a wide range of duties including clinical liaison, interpretation and validation of results, quality assurance and assay development.
Clinical Laboratory Immunology
Track 15: Viral Immunology & Infection control
Viral Immunology delivers cutting-edge peer-reviewed research on emerging, rare, and under-studied viruses, with special focus on analyzing mutual relationships between external viruses and internal immunity. Active immunization involves administering a virus preparation that stimulates the body's immune system to produce its own specific immunity against virus.
Track 16: Adaptive immunity
The adaptive immune system, also known as the acquired immune response which is more specific immune response then the innate immune response. Adaptive immune response is composed of highly specialized, systemic cells and processes that eliminate or prevent pathogen growth. It having ability to recognize specific pathogens more efficiently which creates immunological memory after an initial response to a specific pathogen and lead to an enhanced response to subsequent encounters with that same pathogen.
Immune Responses: Primary and Secondary
Affinity maturation & Selection

Track 17: Immunopathology and Immunodeficiencies
The Immunopathology and Immunodeficiencies is innate and acquired immunity, passive and active immunization and immunopathologies, such as hypersensitivity reactions, autoimmunity and immunodeficiency and all disorders which cause by immune system.The Immunopathology is a branch of medicine that deals with immune responses associated with immunological disorders, and the Immunodeficiencies is immune system's ability to fight infectious disease get low or absent.
Track 18: Mucosal Immunology
Mucosal Immunology is a branch of study of the immune system, which provides protection to an organism's numerous mucous membranes from invasion by potentially pathogenic microbes. The interests of scientists studying gastrointestinal, pulmonary, nasopharyngeal, oral, ocular, and genitourinary immunology. The mucosal surfaces of the gastrointestinal, reproductive and respiratory tracts are in direct contact with the external environment and are therefore susceptible to invasion by pathogens. Mucosal immune system must balance the need to respond to such pathogens with maintaining a harmonious relationship with commensal bacteria and innocuous environmental antigens. This Focus highlights the latest research providing insights into global infections, mucosal vaccines, immune regulation and its relationship to inflammation, various diseases of mucosal tissues such as inflammatory bowel disease, and the immunological importance of epithelial cells.

Track 19: Industrial Immunology
Industrial Immunology is the study of how the body defends itself against disease. It helps us understand how the immune system is tricked into attacking its own tissue, leading to diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes or allergy.
Track 20: Immunogenicity
Immunogenesis is the process by which the immune system gets stimulated which exactly states that the ability of a specific substance viz antigen or epitope to provoke and stimulate an immune response in living being as a defense against the invading foreign components or pathogens and this ability to defense is known as immunogenicity. There are two types such as wanted and unwanted immunogenicity. These two types broadly cover every immune response against pathogen and against a therapeutic antigen, antibodies vaccine development which is a complex multistep process and the immunogenic potential of new protein therapeutics.
