We are pleased to announce that the 17th European Symposium on Platelet and Granulocyte Immunobiology (ESPGI) will be organized from 27 to 29 September 2024, in the Netherlands.

About the Symposium
The ESPGI serves as a platform for professionals to explore, understand, and discuss various facets of thrombocytes and granulocytes. Our Symposium not only offers attendees the chance to hear from eminent speakers but also to dive into the latest research through abstracts and posters. As always, the ESPGI provides an ideal setting to network, share opinions, and indulge in delightful cuisine.

As in 2018, the Symposium will be held at De Reehorst, a hotel and conference center in Ede.
Ede is located in the center of the Netherlands, which is conveniently accessible by car and train, including direct connections from Schiphol Airport.

The Scientific Committee is now well on its way with compiling the program, so stay tuned for more updates. Meanwhile, you can already register for ESPGI 2024 via the Sign up button. We look forward to welcoming you!
