Dear Wilsede Friends
In the Tradition of four Decades Wilsede Meetings „Modern Trends in Human Leukemia“ Olaf Neth started 2012 Sevilla-Wilsede Meetings “ Modern Trends in Infection Diseaeses and Immunology” to open a window from South Europe to Africa for “Science to Life” to help the anaemic, infected and leukemic Children in the poor countries.
Introduction “ Modern Trends in Infectious Diseas and Imunology”,Sevilla 2012
As an active Wilsede Participant in Wilsede and the joint Wilsede Meetings in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Chernobyl I experienced meeting and bringing people together for “Sciencetransfer with Social Awareness”. Hans Stauss introduced me in Wilsede to Av Mitchison and I had the Chance to start to learn Immunology in London.
I have been talking to my father Rolf Neth about the atmosphere in the Wilsede Meetings “Modern Trends in Human Leukemia” and liked the idea to start a joint Wilsede-Sevilla Meeting concentrating on children with severe infections and immunodeficiencies. This would give us the chance and opportunity to open another door and involve spanish speaking countries, a bid like it has been previously done in East Europe.
In Octuber 2012 we had our first meeting in Sevilla called “ Modern Trends in Infectious Diseas and Imunology” adressing hot topics in infectious diseases and immunology and due to the good local response are aiming to repeat this on an anual basis.
Future topics will include the importance of the peripheral blood smear in the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases.
