T Cells: Regulation and Effector Function
Organizer(s): Alexander Y. Rudensky, Dan R. Littman and Kristin A. HogquistDate: March 29 - April 03, 2015
Location: Snowbird Resort, Snowbird, UT, USA
T lymphocytes play a pivotal role in the immune system of vertebrate animals as a key regulatory and effector cell type. Recently, a remarkable progress has been made in the understanding of molecular and cellular mechanisms of differentiation and activation of T lymphocytes and in the elucidation of diverse functional T cell subsets and their biological roles in a variety of physiological and pathological settings. This meeting will bring together leading investigators from the academia and industry studying diverse aspects of T cell biology. The overarching goal of this broadly themed meeting is to facilitate development of a synthetic view of increasingly complex mechanisms of T cell differentiation and function and of interactions between diverse types of T lymphocytes and other cells of the immune system in health and disease. By attracting a diverse array of scientists and students this integrative meeting will cover a wide array of topics and stimulate discussions and interactions, and foster collaborations.
