International Congress on Autoimmune Pre-Disease

We are excited to invite researchers, clinicians, and professionals in the field of autoimmune diseases to participate in the upcoming International Congress on Autoimmune Pre-Disease. Scheduled to be held from September 16th and 17th, 2024 in Lübeck, Germany, this congress aims to foster interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration, shedding light on critical aspects of autoimmune pre-diseases that pave the way for early intervention and prevention strategies.

Join us in unraveling the intricate journey from health to autoimmunity at the Autoimmune Pre-Disease Congress. Delve into the impact of metabolism, stress, microbiota, aging, and drugs on this transition, as well as the pivotal role of real-world data in understanding autoimmune pre-disease. We will focus on systemic rheumatic diseases, pemphigus, and pemphigoid diseases while warmly welcoming submissions related to other autoimmune conditions. Engage in stimulating discussions and networking opportunities amidst the poster sessions and a scenic river boat cruise along the enchanting river Wakenitz, along the medieval town of Lübeck.

Venue: Audimax, University of Lübeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, 23560 Lübeck, Germany
