Viral Immunity
joint with HIV Vaccines
Organizer(s): Jonathan W. Yewdell, Akiko Iwasaki, Nicole L. La Gruta and Jack R. Bennink
Date: March 21 - 26, 2010
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Supported by The Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The most exciting recent advances in viral immunity include the increased understanding of the role of innate immune mechanisms, interaction between innate and adaptive immunity, pathogen manipulation of host responses, and activation of immune responses and generation of immune memory. Despite these advances, basic mechanisms of anti-viral immunity are poorly characterized particularly for chronic infections. Efforts are also required to exploit recent research advances to improve vaccine design and therapeutic intervention. This meeting will include both innate and adaptive immunity and juxtapose animal models with human studies as it attempts to foster collaborative efforts between attending viral immunologists and the HIV vaccine researchers in the joint meeting. Expert talks in plenary sessions will encompass the latest in critical areas of viral immunity. Workshops and additional presentations will cover provocative and cutting-edge results from attendees. The meeting objective is to accelerate progress in understanding and manipulating anti-viral immunity to improve human health.
