EAACI SUMMER SYMPOSIUM ON                                           EPITHELIAL BARRIERS AND MICROBIOME

Humans are exposed to a variety of toxins and chemicals every day. According to the epithelial barrier hypothesis, exposure to many of these substances damages the epithelium, the thin layer of cells that covers the surface of our skin, lungs and intestine. Defective epithelial barriers have been linked to a rise in almost two billion allergic, autoimmune, neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases. The scientific community sees this as one of the three major threats to humanity, such as global warming and climate change, virus infection pandemic, such as COVID and Ebola.

Local epithelial damage to the skin and mucosal barriers lead to allergic conditions, inflammatory bowel disorders and celiac disease.

There is a need to continue research into the epithelial barrier to Experimental models should be developed and validated to monitor the trafficking of environmental antigens to inform approaches for the prevention, early intervention and development of novel therapies.

You can expect two exciting days with renowned scientists and interesting discussions.
