Speaker Highlights

Joshua Milner, MD, Chief, Genetics and Pathogenesis of Allergy Section, Laboratory of Allergic Diseases, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Bethesda, Maryland, USA

What do you like about attending WAO's congresses and conferences?
This is actually my first time. The appeal is an international audience with common interests but diverse professional and academic patients, pursuits, and points of view.

What are you looking forward to at WISC 2016?
Hearing new ideas and cutting-edge data, learning about how a disease is manifest and managed around the world, and meeting new people.

What new findings or insights can attendees look forward to in your session?
We have found a genetic cause for a rather common disorder that allergists likely encounter rather frequently, and in studying these patients have learned a number of new things about an entity often referred to as the mast cell activation disorder. The findings are under review right now.

Israel’s climate is varied, offering tourists the winter choice between skiing on Mount Hermon and swimming in the Bay of Eilat. At the northern tip of Israel, the climate is dry with snow coverage in the winter. Mount Hermon is 6,000 feet high and has 28 miles of ski runs. Eilat has a warm and sunny climate throughout the year. The Bay of Eilat is a major attraction, its isolation from the ocean and geological structure has created the only coral reef in Israel with a variety of maritime wildlife and plants.
