We are pleased to invite you to the first International symposium “Mucosal immunity at the oral-gut axis in health or disease” to be held in Santiago, Chile. The lineup for the symposium will have local and international leaders in mucosal immunology discussing the connection between the oral cavity and intestine in health and disease. The attendants will have the chance to meet recognized national and international researchers, to know about cutting-edge research on each field, and to present their own work in oral/poster presentations.
