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.
