"It was a great pleasure for me to participate in Saint Petersburg to such a successful immunology meeting! You have chosen diversity and contradictory issues instead of absolute truth or any kind of immune nirvana definite answers... The opening piano shooting was marvelous! It had created the smooth and warmly atmosphere needed for science days which followed. Immunology heated the scroll from scleroderma to breast silicone, from multiple sclerosis to cannabis, from burning antiphospholipid syndrome to relaxed rheumatoid arthritis therapeutics and mechanisms knowledge! All together meant well time spent and virgin autoimmune hypothesis! My brain left the building... Happy and more then satisfied... Congratulations!"
