Conference - La Jolla, CA, United States

The UCSD Center for Immunity, Infection & Inflammation and Glycobiology Research & Training Center are hosting the "2014 Glycoimmunology Workshop" here at UCSD School of Medicine on Monday June 23rd and Tuesday June 24th, with the co-sponsorship of the National Institutes of Health, Harvard University and the Scripps Research Institute.The workshop will run from 9 AM to 5 PM each day in the Telemedicine Building Large Auditorium, and feature a series of state-of-the-art invited lectures. This workshop presents a cross-disciplinary and unique approach to the study of carbohydrates and immunity. Speakers come from diverse backgrounds bringing expertise in various model systems of infectious diseases, autoimmunity and malignancy. The 2014 Glycoimmunology Workshop promises to promote crosspollination of cutting-edge ideas to address important clinical and research discoveries. The Workshop will be organized in four major themes: Impact of Glycans on Antibody Function, Glycan Engineering of Immunogens, Glycan Sensing, and Glycan Perturbation in Disease. REGISTRATION IS FREE TO ALL, BUT REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ATTENDANCE. A box lunch will be provided each day. Attendance is limited to the first 250 registrants. I strongly encourage all of you interested in immunology and glycobiology to attend, and to forward to your trainees -- but if you sign up, please do commit to participating in the whole workshop.
