Dear colleagues,
It is with great enthusiasm that I extend to you an invitation to attend at the upcoming “Oral-Gut Conference 2: Expanding the Horizons of GI tract Immunology and Microbiology”. Building on the success of our 2020 symposium in Santiago, Chile, we are excited to present a second, more expansive edition at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, slated for June 11th-12th, 2024.

This conference, co-organized by Gustavo Monasterio (Karolinska Institute), Juliana Barreto de Albuquerque (Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School), Claudia Rivera (NIH), and Eduardo Villablanca (Karolinska Institute), is sponsored by the Karolinska Institute and the Society for Mucosal Immunology (SMI). Our vision is to foster a comprehensive dialogue spanning the broad spectrum of immunology and microbiology research within the mucosal surfaces of the gastrointestinal tract and its related organs. The conference's main topics include intestinal and oral mucosal immunity, the interplay between oral and intestinal health, and the systemic implications of intestinal perturbations. We anticipate that the gathering will not only disseminate cutting-edge knowledge but also foster sustained collaboration among attendees. 

We are privileged to confirm as Keynote Speakers: Dr. Yasmine Belkaid (NIH/NIAID – President of the Institut Pasteur), Dr. Oliver Pabst (RWTH Aachen – Chair of Molecular Medicine), and Dr. Niki Moutsopoulos (NIH/NIDCR).

We welcome your abstracts for submission. Postdocs and PhD students are encouraged to submit abstracts
Faculty members are not required to submit an abstract, so feel free to show your interest and register before the registration list fills up!

The deadline for abstracts submission is March 15th, 2024. For further details on the conference and the submission process, please visit 

We look forward to your participation and contribution to a fruitful and enlightening conference.

With warm regards,
