Immunity in the Respiratory Tract: Challenges of the Lung Environment
joint with Mucosal Biology: A Fine Balance between Tolerance and Immunity
Organizer(s): David L. Woodland, Liise-anne Pirofski and Allen G. Harmsen
Date: February 26 - March 03, 2011
Location: Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Sponsored by Hoffmann-La Roche, Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
Recently, there has been an explosion in information about the regulation of inflammation, immunity, and immunopathology in the lung. Despite these advances, we still have only a rudimentary understanding of how these responses relate to the lung environment or how and why they translate into beneficial or detrimental effects, health or disease. The goals of this meeting are to (i) bring together allergists, immunologists, microbiologists and vaccinologists to discuss pulmonary inflammation and immunity in the context of lung biology and (ii) to build on this understanding to develop improved vaccines and therapeutic interventions for inflammatory conditions and infectious diseases that affect the lungs. Expert talks in plenary sessions will present the latest research in the field. Workshops and additional talks will add late-breaking cutting-edge results. The meeting will considerably advance our understanding of respiratory immunity.
