Dear Fiends and Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to Budapest for the Meeting of Middle-European Societies for Immunology and Allergology (MESIA) 2016.

This will be the third joint meeting of immunological and allergological societies in the Middle-European region (Austria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia). The first, held in Vienna in 2010, was an outstanding success which was followed by the event in Opatija in 2013, which confirmed the high-level scientific interactions and proved the importance of a strong immunological network in Middle-Europe.

Joint meetings, such as MESIA Meeting 2016, provide one of the best opportunities to facilitate meeting of researchers and clinicians (particularly beneficial for young fellows), to stimulate collaborations between basic and clinical research in the field of immunology and allergology and to increase the regional potential for translational research.

On behalf of the Organising Committee, I cordially invite you to join us at MESIA Meeting 2016 in Budapest!

Prof. Margit Zeher
President of the Organizing Committee
