This conference will bring together experts in B cell biology to discuss the most recent advances in B cell research. Studies on B cell formation, from initial development, maturation, effector or memory development, and terminal differentiation have made researchers more appreciative of the molecular changes, including epigenetic marks, modifications and factors that control and modulate development and differentiation in the functional role of B cells. The complexities of B cell differentiation pathways through germinal centers and extra-follicular foci in primary lymphoid organs, in addition to novel interactions in diverse secondary lymphoid tissues, are also under intense study in both mice and humans. Conference sessions will cover the interactions of B cells with lymphoid cells, non-lymphoid cells, and secreted factors in a myriad of environments. This will help elucidate the numerous factors which influence and ultimately dictate the contribution of each unique B cell subset to homeostasis, immune defense or immunopathology. Understanding the drivers of B cell differentiation and function will enable precise harnessing of these key elements to optimize the immuno-therapeutic effect of B cells and their antibodies in autoimmune disease, infection, and cancer.
