The Golden Anniversary of B Cell Discovery
joint with HIV Vaccines
Organizer(s): Patrick C. Wilson, Michael P. Cancro and Anne Durandy
Date: March 22 - 27, 2015
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Sponsored by BioLegend, Inc., Genmab A/S and Roche
Summary of Meeting:
The B cell Keystone Symposia meeting is the premiere venue for B cell biologists and those interested in learning more about B cells. The 2015 meeting is unusually noteworthy, because it marks the golden anniversary of the discovery of B cells by Max Cooper and Robert Good in their classic Nature paper. Accordingly, the meeting will honor the past 50 years of B cell study while focusing on the most up-to-date advances in B cell biology and antibody-meditated immunity. Each topical session will begin with a commentary on the history of the area, followed by presentations on the most current advances. Particular emphasis will be placed on B cell immunopoiesis in germinal centers, on the interaction of B cells with follicular-helper T cells, on antibody-mediated immunity to HIV and influenza, and on plasma and memory B cell biology. The goal is to showcase the latest breakthroughs in B cell biology, antibody technologies and the potential for B cell/antibody-mediated vaccine development. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be significantly enhanced by the concurrent Keystone Symposia meeting on 'HIV Vaccines,' which will share a keynote address and three plenary sessions with this meeting.
