The International Plant Immunity Symposium, organized by the International Research Training Group (IRTG) 2172, will be held in Goettingen, Germany. 

IRTG 2172 Plant Responses To Eliminate Critical Threats is a DFG funded collaborative training program for PhD students between research groups of the University of Goettingen, Germany, and research groups of the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. 

During the symposium, the doctoral students and senior researchers of the IRTG 2172 will present their most recent research findings. To put these results into context, internationally leading plant immunity scientists will give insights in their up-to-date work. Grad students as well as postdocs from the field of plant-microbe interaction are welcome to present their research during extensive poster sessions.

This two-day symposium will provide the perfect platform to set up a scientific network as well as to discuss most recent research findings, new methods, and to get in contact with experts in that area of plant immunity.
