Summary of Meeting:
With the emergence of drug-resistant organisms, advances in immunology, insights gained from understanding the normal and disease microbiome, and rapid technological advances including high-throughput sequencing and robotics, the time is ripe to hold a second Keystone Symposia meeting on this topic like the one held in 2000. This meeting focuses on innate and adaptive immunity to microbial infections. Microbial infections pose major health problems worldwide, but also represent extraordinary models to study immune regulation. Important advances in immunology have been made in recent years and have led to a new understanding of host-pathogen interactions. This conference explores the interaction of the innate and adaptive immune response in host defense against microbial infection. This meeting aims to bring together immunologists who study basic mechanisms and those who study infectious agents to formulate new strategies to control some of the world’s most deadly diseases.
