T Cell Development
Organizer(s): Frederick W. Alt, Harvey I. Cantor and James P. Allison
Date: February 10 - 15, 2004
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Sponsored in part by the Director's Sponsor Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Upon completion of this conference, participants should: - Gain an updated on exciting research findings on T cell development including new advances in the elucidation of Transcription factors that regulate Th1/Th2 development; Development and selection of NK T cells; Transcriptional control of CD4/CD8 development; and factors that regulate VDJ recombination at the TCR locus - Gain insight into pivotal problems which include: the developmental relationship of suppression to effector CD4 cells and CD8 cells; Relationship of abnormalities in gene recombination to neoplasia; consensus view on development and TCR expression of CD4, CD8 and NK T cells. In the context of our objective, the goal of the meeting is to help generate new approaches to understanding transcriptional control of T cell development and also to help clarify and further develop our understanding of the relationship between dysregulated T cell development and disease mechanisms.
