Welcome and Committees


Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to welcome you to Genoa in March/April 2019 for the 10th Biannual Meeting of the International Society of Systemic Auto-Inflammatory Diseases (ISSAID). The objective of this congress is to discuss the following main topics: classical autoinflammatory diseases, mechanisms of disease, new diseases, immune dysregulation, HSCT and gene therapy, as well as dermatology as a special topic.

Most importantly, the goal of the congress is to foster discussion and knowledge exchange among colleagues from the ISSAID community.

In April, spring arrives in Genoa, and the city, known as one of the most important ports on the Mediterranean, welcomes you with its glorious past and impressive landmarks. The ISSAID 2019 Congress will gather over 600 participants, including rheumatologists, immunologists and paediatricians, biologists and others with an interest in systemic auto-inflammatory diseases.

Please be sure to save the dates in your diary – 31 March-3 April 2019!

We look forward to welcoming you to ISSAID 2019,

Marco Gattorno
