Welcome Letter


Dear Colleagues, 

In November, 2017 we will gather in Cancun, Mexico for a cutting edge Congress on the science of Autoimmunity. 

Several international opinion leaders will join a number of distinguished Latin American autoimmunologists, to create an environment of dynamic scientific exchange about recent progress in the field. With this, we aim to bring together the most prolific investigators in Autoimmunity to present their recent work and debate with their peers and the audience.

LACA 2017 applies a multidisciplinary approach, focusing on all aspects of the challenge of understanding and offering a better care to people with autoimmune disorders.

The scientific program will include updates on novel therapies in autoimmune diseases such as SLE, IBD and neurological diseases, alongside novel themes like Chikungunya in the region of the Americas, the Zika virus and autoimmunity, and many more.


Join us as an active participant by submitting an abstract, come and join your colleagues for an inspiring event of learning and networking in the serene setting of Cancun, Mexico.


Sincerely yours,


Prof. Luis Javier Jara Quezada, MD, MaMCR, MaACR​           Prof. Yehuda Shoenfeld, MD, FRCP, MaACR

LACA 2017 Congress Chairman                                  LACA 2017 Honorary Chairman​
