Neuroinflammation in Diseases of the Central Nervous System
Organizer(s): Richard M. Ransohoff, Christopher K. Glass and V. Hugh Perry
Date: January 25 - 30, 2015
Location: Sagebrush Inn & Suites, Taos, NM, USA
Sponsored by Abide Therapeutics Inc., Biogen Idec, FORUM Pharmaceuticals Inc., Shire Human Genetic Therapies and Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited. Supported by an educational donation provided by Amgen.
Summary of Meeting:
Neuroinflammation, the response of the central nervous system (CNS) to disturbed homeostasis, typifies all neurological diseases, including primary-inflammatory, developmental, traumatic, ischemic, neoplastic and neurodegenerative. Disease-associated neuroinflammatory responses may be helpful, harmful or neutral. This Keystone Symposia meeting will: (i) address the developmental roles of neuroinflammatory cells including microglia and blood-brain barrier (BBB) neurovascular elements; (ii) clarify how neuroinflammatory reactions mediate host defense against neuroinvasive microbial pathogens, and also how the response to systemic inflammation affects the neuroinflammatory elements; (iii) specify critically-important neuroinflammatory cells (microglia; astrocytes; NG2+ glia; BBB), receptors (toll-like receptors; inflammasomes; cytokine receptors), signaling pathways and effector mechanisms; and (iv) identify the most salient targets of neuroinflammation (neurons; neural progenitor and stem cells; oligodendroglia) and mechanisms of injury. This meeting will be the first Keystone Symposia meeting on neuroinflammation and will be the first to bring together the many communities of disease-focused neuroscientists and immunologists with an interest in the CNS.
