Inflammatory Diseases: Recent Advances in Basic and Translational Research and Therapeutic Treatments
joint with Emerging Cytokine Networks
Organizer(s): Chen Dong, Tadamitsu Kishimoto and Richard A. Flavell
Date: January 17 - 22, 2014
Location: Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Sponsored by Biogen Idec, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Janssen R&D: Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, Novo Nordisk A/S and Pfizer Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
Chronic inflammatory diseases represent a major threat to the health of our society. In the past several years, there have been advancements in understanding the immunological basis for inflammatory diseases and in identifying the cellular components and molecular pathways underlying their pathogenesis. Systems approaches have been taken in translational research of human patients. In addition, new biological and small molecule drugs have been tested with different degrees of success. The goal of this meeting is review these advances and to provide a single forum for basic, clinical and industrial experts to consider opportunities for further development of concepts, systems and therapeutics. This will be achieved by: 1) covering multiple types of inflammatory diseases that affect multiple organs; 2) gathering basic scientists, translational researchers and pharmaceutical investigators in the same setting; and 3) featuring roundtable discussion on future improvements in animal models and approaches to study human diseases and drug responses. We anticipate that this meeting will foster discussion on common pathways in inflammatory diseases, common methodology in studying human diseases and common challenges in designing the best medicine and clinical trials.
