Dear colleagues,

The Consortium for TCR-mediated Regulation and Oncogenesis in Lymphomas of T cells (CONTROL-T) cordially invites you to join us at the "International Symposium on T cells and T-cell lymphomas" on September 20-21, 2019, in Essen (Germany). This summit will bring together leading experts from the fields of pathology, genomics, imaging, modeling, cell signaling, cellular immunology, medical oncology, and experimental cell therapy dealing with normal T-cell biology and T-cell lymphomas.

CONTROL-T is a German Research Foundation (DFG FOR1961) supported consortium around the pathobiology and aberrant immunology of mature T-cell lymphomas. The panel of speakers consists of invited world-renowned experts and members of CONTROL-T. It is also planned to have selected short talks from submitted abstracts.

The meeting will take place at the clinical campus of the University Hospital Essen. We would be happy if you could join us at this symposium. It is an exciting chance for exchange on the latest insights into the complex T-cell immunology and the biology and therapy of T-cell malignancies.

Hoping to see you in Essen,

Martin-Leo Hansmann
