Oxford IBD MasterClass 2020 Organising Committee : Jack Satsangi, Paul Klenerman, Simon Travis, Simon Leedham, Alessandra Geremia, Denise O'Donnell & Lydia White.

The Oxford IBD MasterClass 2020, now in its 47th year, will be held on 14 & 15 September at the Examination Schools in Oxford.  The focus of the meeting will be the innovations in IBD from the field of immunology.  As always, the meeting will be delivered by a distinguished faculty of expert speakers.  This year we have a wide range of topics to discuss and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and interact with the speakers and your contemporaries. The programme has an outstanding national and international Faculty. For the first time, we start with a half-day symposium co-sponsored by the British Society of Immunology; before the translational and clinical sessions. Our aim, as in previous years, is to blend cutting-edge science with state-of-the-art clinical practice.

We are delighted that Professor Ramnik Xavier (Harvard University) has accepted our invitation to be the Truelove Lecturer. Other international members of the faculty include Professors’ Britta Siegmund (Berlin), Geert D’Haens (Amsterdam), Brian Feagan (Canada) as well as our colleagues from the United Kingdom Tim Raine, Arthur Kaser, Peter Irving, Ailsa Hart & James Lindsay. It is really a very exciting programme for scientists, physicians at all stages of their careers, and other health care professionals.

In addition to the main Oxford MasterClass we are delighted to announce that we will be running a forum for specialist IBD Nurses entitled IBD Nursing; On the Move.  We will have a separate programme running in the morning on Monday consisting of a plenary session followed by 3 breakout sessions.  Nurses attending this forum are welcome to join the main Oxford MasterClass sessions on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. Click here for the Nurses Registration to see registration options and complete your application.

Both meetings will be held in the Examination Schools, which captures the essence of Oxford.  There is also the opportunity to join us for the course dinner at New College on Monday evening to continue the discussions around the science and best clinical practice with the faculty, your peers and colleagues.
