Organizer(s): Jenny P. Ting, Richard A. Flavell and Luke A.J. O'Neill
Date: March 29 - April 03, 2009
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The discovery of evolutionarily conserved immune genes and pathways has led to an explosive discovery phase in innate immunity. These pathways include TLR, NLR, C-type lectin Receptor, and the helicase-containing anti-viral proteins. These novel pathways merge the innate and adaptive branches of immunity, and converge on a wide range of disorders including infectious diseases, inflammation and autoimmunity. All of the above have systemic effects that can affect the outcome of a wide range of diseases ranging from cancer to cardiovascular disorders.
