EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Innate Immunity in Host-Pathogen Interactions
EMBL has taken the difficult decision to pause our programme of external courses and conferences. As a result, we are postponing the meeting to 2022 (new dates to be confirmed) and apologise for the inconvenience.
This symposium provides a discussion platform for all scientists interested in the biology of infection. Cell biologists, microbiologists and immunologists will discuss in joint sessions recent progress in our understanding of host-pathogen interactions. Talks will focus on common processes, rather than particular infectious agents or host cell types, and the strategies of all major types of pathogens in their interaction with plants and animals will be covered. A better understanding of infectious diseases will come from the simultaneous analysis of microbial and host variables, which may open new avenues for treatment and prevention strategies.
