The most exciting recent advances in viral immunity include the increased understanding of the role of innate immune mechanisms, interaction between innate and adaptive immunity, pathogen manipulation of host responses, activation of immune responses and immune effector functions. Despite these advances, basic mechanisms of anti-viral immunity are poorly characterized for many acute infections and less well understood for chronic infections. Efforts are required to exploit recent research advances to improve vaccine design and therapeutic intervention. This meeting will cover both innate and adaptive immunity and juxtapose animal models with human studies as it attempts to foster collaborative efforts among attending viral immunologists working in disparate systems and models. The overall meeting objective is to accelerate progress in understanding and manipulating anti-viral immunity to improve human health.
