Cambridge Immunology Forum 2014: "Immunometabolism"

The Cambridge Immunology Forum has been running for 14 years with each meeting being focused on a single immunological theme and covering aspects from very basic science through to clinical application. This year’s meeting will focus on the interactions between metabolism and the immune system.
