We are pleased to announce a unique initiative. Three EBMT working parties (Autoimmune, Inborn Errors and Paediatric) will all meet on 22 to 24 June 2023 for the Midterm Meeting in Immune Dysregulatory, Autoinflammatory and Autoimmune Diseases. The meeting will be held at the Auditorium di S.Giulia in Brescia (Italy) and will be part of the event 'The culture that cures', one of the scientific manifestations of the celebration "Bergamo and Brescia Capitali della Cultura", which are Italy Covid martyr towns.

Why? It is about time to discuss the therapeutic approach to classical as well as emerging immunological diseases from an interdisciplinary viewpoint, bringing together both transplant physicians and disease specialists to evaluate the transplant and cellular therapy options.

Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) is widely used to treat patients with malignant and non-malignant haematological disorders. During the last decade, major changes have occurred in the field of allogeneic HSCT, including the introduction of less aggressive conditioning regimens, improved patient selection, new cell manipulation techniques and modern supportive therapy, with substantial progress in reducing GvHD because of more accurate HLA-typing and better GvHD prevention, opening this procedure to a growing number of non-malignant disorders, including patients affected by diseases of the haematopoietic system and therefore of immunity who have a dramatically impaired quality of life. Progressively, the choice of donors and the sources of HSCs have enlarged, extending transplant indications to more patients.

Moreover, HSCT for autoimmune diseases (ADs) is today facing a unique developmental phase across EBMT. Autologous transplant has become an integral part of treatment algorithms in various ADs, providing treatment-free remissions by the reinduction of self-tolerance. More and more genetic backgrounds of autoimmune diseases are deciphered, and new monogenic diseases leading to loss of tolerance and AD are described, extending the indication for allogeneic HSCT. Recently, novel cellular therapies (ie CART cells, mesenchymal cells) have been successfully adopted as therapeutic options for severe ADs.

Invited experts from all WPs will discuss the therapeutic options for the classical ADs, but also for emerging new diseases that overlap the specificities of the 3 WPs.

The meeting welcomes contributions by colleagues who are invited to submit scientific abstracts and/or case presentations to be actively discussed in the sessions or as posters.

We look forward to meeting you all in Brescia,
