Chemokines and Leukocyte Trafficking in Homeostasis and Inflammation
Organizer(s): William W. Agace, Sirpa Jalkanen and Sergio A. Lira
Date: January 08 - 13, 2012
Location: Beaver Run Resort, Breckenridge, CO, USA
Sponsored by Biogen Idec, Novo Nordisk A/S and Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated
Summary of Meeting:
The organized trafficking of leukocyte subsets through the tissue compartments of the body is critical to the generation of innate and adaptive immune responses and for normal organ immuno-surveillance; however, when misguided, such processes can promote uncontrolled inflammation resulting in tissue pathology. It is now well established that cellular adhesion and chemokine receptors play a central role in regulating tissue-specific leukocyte migration. Recent studies have started to unravel the complex mechanisms underlying the expression of these receptors on lymphocytes and highlight the importance of the local lymph node environments and migratory dendritic cells in the induction of peripheral tissue homing receptors. While immunologists have traditionally tended to focus on primary and secondary lymphoid compartments to study immunological processes and immune cell interactions, there is a growing realization that many, if not most, of our immune cells are located in peripheral tissues and that each of these sites possess unique immunological characteristics. This Keystone Symposia meeting on Chemokines and Leukocyte Trafficking in Homeostasis and Inflammation will bring together scientists and clinicians with expertise in immune cell migration, cellular adhesion/chemokine receptor regulation and tissue-specific leukocyte trafficking with a focus on the peripheral tissue compartments in health and disease.
