Molecular Cell Biology of Macrophages in Human Diseases
Organizer(s): Frederic Geissmann, Judith E. Allen and Christopher K. Glass
Date: February 09 - 14, 2014
Location: Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Hotel, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Sponsored by BioLegend, Inc., Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research and Novo Nordisk A/S
Summary of Meeting:
In recent years, studies of the development, genetics, and molecular cell biology of macrophages has advanced our understanding of their major role in health and diseases. Many questions remain to be answered with respect to mechanisms that control macrophage development and function, particularly in the context of human genetic heterogeneity. Recent discoveries have also revealed greater heterogeneity in macrophage function and origins than previously appreciated. Answering these questions will have major implications for human health and disease. To help meet this challenge, this meeting will bring together leading and upcoming scientists in immunology, infectious diseases, metabolism, molecular biology and genetics, development, cancer, and cell migration with a common interest in macrophages and their roles in human diseases. In addition to the regular sessions, three “macrophage leading edge” workshops will provide a platform to discuss the findings of young scientists, selected from the submitted abstracts to present their work. These workshops will additionally help to focus the meeting on some of the fastest moving areas of macrophage biology.
Scholarship Deadline: October 15 2013
