Innate Immunity: Evolution and Link to Adaptive Immunity
Organizer(s): R. Alan B. Ezekowitz, Jules A. Hoffmann and Fotis C. Kafatos
Date: February 12 - 17, 2002
Location: Sagebrush Inn & Suites, Taos, NM, USA
Sponsored in part by The Director's Sponsor Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Recent exciting information has determined that the templates that are laid down in primitive life forms, like flowering plants and insects, form the basic principles of first line host defense that are conserved in mammalian systems. The next frontier in the field is to understand the dynamic adaptive changes that occur as a result of the interplay between host defenses and infectious agents. One emerging theme is that microorganisms are constantly seeking ways to co-opt host defenses. On the other hand, host defense to infection is mediated by the coordinate action pattern recognition molecules and receptors that, in mammals, are important and probably necessary antecedents to the development of an adaptive immune response. This conference aims to explore the intersection between host pathogen interactions across an evolutionary spectrum that will inform our understanding of the dynamic interplay between infectious agents and host defense in man
