Molecular Aspects of Viral Immunity (E7)

Early Registration Deadline: Feb 17, 2001

Sponsored in part by the Director's Sponsor Fund

Summary of Meeting:
This meeting will examine the molecular mechanisms underlying the development of effective immune responses against acute, latent, or chronic viral infections. This impacts on diverse diseases ranging from infectious diseases, to allergy, autoimmunity, and some cancers. The regulation, induction, manipulation, and subversion of these responses will be explored. Prevention of infections, mechanisms which promote persistence or clearance of virus from diverse organ sites, inflammation and other innate immune responses to viral infection, mechanisms by which pathogens evade host responses, therapeutic immunomodulators, and infection-associated pathology will be considered. These investigations will ultimately lead to the emergence of paradigms which can result in improved human and animal health.
