Swiss Institute of Asthma and Allergy Research

September 27, 2019

The Swiss Institute of Allergy and Asthma Research (SIAF) has successfully moved to its new premises in the Medicine Campus at Davos Wolfgang. The spaces for labs and offices are double in size and are equipped with the most up to date technologies.
We would like to celebrate this important and special event together with the best allergists/immunologists with a scientific opening symposium.
