Symposium Overview

This symposium focuses on bringing together microbiologists and immunologists to obtain a global view of host-pathogen interactions. The talks will centre around common processes, rather than a particular infectious agent or host cell, and the strategies of all types of pathogens, commensals and different host cells will be analysed. A better understanding of infectious disease will come through the simultaneous analysis of microbial and host variables, and 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
