This year’s Congress, dedicated to the theme Common origins of allergy and chronic inflammatory diseases – the one health approach!, will be held in a hybrid format (online and face-to-face) from 1-3 July 2022 in Prague (Czech Republic).
Coordinated by the ISPUP researcher, together with Domingo Barber from the Spanish University of São Paulo, the EAACI congress will address a wide range of topics including novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to allergy and chronic diseases.
“Very different topics will be presented that meet the specific needs of the participants”, says André Moreira.
The researcher holds the position of Coordinator of the Scientific Committee of EAACI until the end of this year, 2022. In 2020 and 2021, André Moreira was one of those responsible for organising the EAACI Congress.
EAACI is an association of clinicians, researchers, and allied health professionals, dedicated to improving the health of people affected by allergic diseases.
With more than 12,000 members from 124 countries and over 50 National Allergy Societies, EAACI is the primary source of expertise in Europe for all aspects of allergy.
