Mucosal Biology: A Fine Balance between Tolerance and Immunity
joint with Immunity in the Respiratory Tract: Challenges of the Lung Environment
Organizer(s): Joanne L. Viney, Paul Garside and Bana Jabri
Date: February 26 - March 03, 2011
Location: Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Part of the Keystone Symposia Global Health Series, Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Summary of Meeting:
Experts from the basic science and clinical fields of mucosal biology will be brought together with leaders from other scientific disciplines for a stimulating discussion on the mechanisms regulating the maturation, development and maintenance of mucosal responses in health and disease. Attention will be given to gut, lung, skin, eye and genitourinary tract tissues. The latest information on novel cell types and receptors important for regulating immunity and enhancing mucosal protection will be presented. The influence of infection on driving altered host immunity will be interrogated. Modern approaches to vaccine development and imaging technology will be highlighted. And, the most up to date advances from the physical sciences and engineering will be discussed as we look to the medical needs and developments of the future.
