B Cells at the Intersection of Innate and Adaptive Immunity
Organizer(s): Mikael C. I. Karlsson, Claudia Mauri, Eric Meffre and Andrea CeruttiDate: May 29 - June 02, 2016
Location: Clarion Hotel Sign, Stockholm, Sweden
In the last few years, the role of B cells in the innate immune response and effector functions beyond antibody production has started to be appreciated. This meeting puts emphasis on newly discovered roles of B cells and discusses novel concepts in B cell biology that will open new venues to design B cell-directed treatments. It will thus highlight the function of B cells as general responders and regulators of inflammation and contrast this to their function and latest discoveries of their role as antibody producers.
