Summary of Meeting:
The cells of the immune system are armed with a dizzying array of signaling receptors requiring them to integrate an enormous amount of information about their environment to mount the appropriate biologic response. Over the last several years much has been learned about the biochemical nature of the signaling cascades initiated by interactions of individual receptors with their ligands. This progress presents an exciting new challenge, namely, to understand how multiple signals are integrated in the context of the entire cell to bring about the ultimate cellular response. We propose to bring together distinguished scientists working at the cutting edge of immune cell signaling to describe their new findings and to address how these issues relate to human disease. This meeting will provide a view of 1) how the initial encounter of immune cell signaling receptors with their ligands ultimately leads to the biological response, be it activation, differentiation, movement, or cell death and 2) how this knowledge is being translated to important clinical problems in autoimmunity, immunodeficiency, vaccines, tumor immunity, transplantation and infectious diseases.
