Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: Molecular Mechanisms of Immune Cell Development & Function
This SRC focuses on molecular mechanisms underlying fundamental aspects of immune cell biology. This conference is distinctive in its focus on the molecular biology underlying immune responses, including genome-wide insights into regulatory function and dysfunction. The conference also stands out by bringing together research on B, T, NK, and innate system immune cells so that shared and contrasting mechanisms can be illuminated, both in the mature effector cells and in their developing precursors.
The conference will also include a keynote talk by Dan Litmann, a leader in the field, and formal sessions on Early lymphocyte progenitors, Mechanisms that underpin lymphocyte development, Transcriptional regulation of lymphocyte differentiation, Antigen receptor assembly, Molecular and physical mechanisms that promote lymphocyte cell fate, B cell activation and neoplasia, The regulation of the immune responses, Innate immunity and Molecular pathways in innate immunity. These sessions are each anchored by invited speakers with shorter talks chosen from abstracts. The meeting will also include two poster sessions and two workshops consisting of short presentations chosen from submitted abstracts. By highlighting common and contrasting uses of similar mechanisms, the meeting will reveal unexpected synergies between areas of molecular immunology that are traditionally considered distinct. Such discoveries are enhanced by the program's emphasis on mixing national and international experts with young scientists, including postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, among the presenters in an open atmosphere of scientific exchange. A large number of oral presentations will be selected from the abstracts.
