Young Investigator Workshop on Basic Science and Translational immunology in PSC

The workshop will foster international networking between participants and will present a forum to discuss ongoing research projects together with internationally recognized experts in basic science and immunology.

In order to motivate and engage young scientists into research on the pathogenesis and treatment of Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), the International PSC Study Group (IPSCSG) together with the European Reference Network on Hepatological Diseases (ERN RARE-LIVER) and the Clinical Research Unit 306 (CRU 306), Hamburg, will host a workshop on basic science and translational immunology in PSC research.

The workshop aims to understand the pathogenesis of AILDS, foster networking between basic and clinical science as well as foster networking between ERNs involved in rare autoimmune and liver diseases (RARE-LIVER, Transplant Child and ERN RITA), share knowledge and pool resources between ERNs. It will present a forum to discuss ongoing research projects between international participants.

We are planning to host up to 30 young scientists and ten senior scientists involved in PSC research for mentoring and state of the art presentations. To support the aims of the workshop the meeting will take place in the trendy Pier3 Hotel located right in the heart of the Hamburg harbour city (

The meeting will start with a dinner on the 24th of May and end around 3 p.m. on the 26th of May. Accomodation for two nights and food will be covered by the organizers.
