Innate Immunity: Signaling Mechanisms
joint with NK and NKT Cell Biology
Organizer(s): Luke A.J. O'Neill, Jürg Tschopp and Shizuo Akira
Date: February 24 - 29, 2008
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by sanofi-aventis
Summary of Meeting:
The past 5 years has seen remarkable progress in our understanding of the molecular basis for innate immunity. New families of receptors have been discovered that sense microbial products, including Toll-like receptors (TLRs), NOD-like receptors (NLRs) and RIG-I-like receptors. In addition, signaling mechanisms activated by these receptor families have been described, with new adapter proteins, protein kinases and transcription factors being found. Breakthroughs in our understanding of signaling mechanisms is a key aspect for this field, with much excitement and insight being generated. This Keystone Symposia meeting will assemble the world’s leading investigators in cell signaling during innate immunity, to present recent data and discuss the importance of signaling in the more general context of innate immunity. We can expect a compelling and informative meeting that will bring together basic researchers in the area but also those more generally interested in leading edge research in innate immunity.
