Regulatory T Cells
Organizer(s): Yasmine Belkaid, Fiona M. Powrie, and Shimon Sakaguchi
Date: March 01 - 06, 2009
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by Novo Nordisk A/S
Summary of Meeting:
Over the past few years Regulatory T cells have taken center stage in the field of immunoregulation. Several types of regulatory T cell have been described on the basis of their origin, generation and mechanism of action, with two main subsets identified: naturally occurring FOXP3+ regulatory T cells and inducible regulatory T cells. All types of regulatory T cell, by virtue of their capacity to control the intensity of effector responses, have been shown to play a major role in the control of immune responses at large. This meeting will highlight recent developments in our understanding of the molecular basis for the differentiation of naturally occurring or inducible regulatory T cells. The second goal is to discuss information on the targets, mechanism of action, recruitment and homeostasis of regulatory T cells. The third goal is to discuss recent advances in our understanding of the conditions favoring the emergence and regulation of these populations and to discuss how these findings are translated in clinical trials.
