Innate Immunity: Mechanisms and Modulation
Scientific Organizers: Kate A. Fitzgerald, Arturo Zychlinsky and Kate Schroder
Date: April 11 - 15, 2021
Location: INEC Killarney Convention Centre, Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Innate immunity is the first response to both pathogens and tissue injury. Specialized cells have evolved mechanisms to detect microbial and distress signals and translate these into effector mechanism that fight infections, amplify inflammation, initiate acquired immunity and eventually resolve. Classically, the innate immune response was linked to infectious disease, but it is now clear that it is relevant to a broad range of diseases, including cancer, autoimmunity, as well as degenerative and vascular diseases. This conference will bring together multidisciplinary perspectives on innate immunity, covering fundamental science, clinical aspects of disease, and industry approaches to immune modulation. The program focuses on recent advances in this rapidly developing field and includes new insights into mechanisms of microbial and distress sensing, and effector mechanisms of innate immune cells such as macrophages, neutrophils, dendritic cells and innate lymphoid cells. The program will also highlight new approaches to understanding protective and pathogenic innate immune function, and emerging therapeutic opportunities for targeting these mechanisms in disease.
Registration opens in January 2020
