Symposium Overview

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.

Session Topics

  • Sensing pathogens
  • The cell biology of infection
  • Fungus-host interactions
  • Cell-autonomous immunity
  • Pathological consequences of infection and inflammation
  • Microbiota and pathogen control
