Rheumatoid Arthritis: Molecular and Clinical Insights
Organizer(s): David M. Lee, Gary S. Firestein and Ellen M. GravalleseDate: January 19 - 24, 2012
Location: Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Recent advances in genetic, cellular and molecular methodologies provide both new insights into disease pathogenesis and opportunities for therapeutic advances. Despite broad interest in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) within the immunology and clinical communities, there exists no focused venue for investigators with an interest in this disease to interact with each other, sharing ideas and developing productive collaborations. The Keystone Symposia format will fill this burgeoning need. This meeting will provide a venue for discussion of cutting-edge research topics in basic science and clinical science areas relevant to RA research. By fostering interactions between basic, translational and clinical investigators, we anticipate that this meeting will lead to new studies – as well as new approaches to studying – the pathogenesis and treatment of RA. The meeting will also serve to promote scientific development of early-career investigators, including those in training; their work will be among the selected presentations, creating an opportunity for interaction between junior investigators and outstanding senior scientists and mentors.
