This workshop is supported by Thomas Pradeu's ERC Starting Grant IDEM, PhilInBioMed, and ImmunoConcept.

 The questions raised by this workshop will include:

What is the benefit for biology and medicine to think in terms of (psycho)neuroimmunology in
comparison with its constituting disciplines, namely immunology, neurobiology, and psychology?
At what level(s) of analysis (organism, organ, cell, and molecule) are neuroimmunology and
psychoneuroimmunology most powerful in explaining health and disease?
What does it mean for the central nervous system to be immune-privileged and can other nervous
systems or organs be qualified in the same way?
How important are biological barriers (blood-brain barrier, gut barrier, etc.) and biological
compartments (brain parenchyma, meninges, gut lumen, peritoneal cavity) in constraining or
favoring neuroimmune interactions?
Does neuroimmunology account better for the organism’s capacity to maintain its integrity than
neuroscience and immunology?
What are the implications and what can be the impact of some (psycho)neuroimmunological
research findings for other fields of biology and medicine, and more generally for philosophical and social issues?
