Innate Immunity
Organizer(s): Siamon Gordon and Albert S. Bendelac
Date: February 10 - 15, 2006
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Supported by The Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The innate immune system is evolutionarily ancient, protecting the host during early stages of infectious challenge, and directing the subsequent adaptive immune response in higher organisms. The field has exploded in recent years, with insights into the role of different cell types and molecular mechanisms from recognition of pathogens to signal transduction and altered gene expression and functions. This meeting will feature some of the key investigators in the field who will present recent research on model systems, myeloid cell and natural lymphocyte receptors, TLR and other signalling pathways, and interactions with infectious agents and malignancy. The meeting will conclude with examples of how disorders of innate immunity can give rise to important diseases.
