Innate Immunity 2016
15th – 17th November, Online
This is the FIRST live streamed online conference discussing Innate Immunity and will discuss the increasingly appreciated role of the innate immune system in initiating and directing immune responses. We have gathered together invited speakers from around the world, who you might not otherwise have access to.
While vitamin D is best known for its essential role in skeletal health, there is increasing evidence that it has other physiological functions as well. Dr. John White, (McGill University, Montreal, Canada) will discuss the growing evidence that vitamin D is a key regulator of the immune system and boosts the body’s capacity to combat infections and control inflammation.
Speakers will discuss the role of the immune system in pathogen recognition, effector function and activation of adaptive responses. Professor Steven R. Van Doren’s group, (University of Missouri, Columbia, United States) recently reported ground breaking structural studies of transient MMP complexes with cell surface components and collagen mimics
Considering therapeutic regulation, Dr Daniel Menendez, (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), Durham, United States) will be speaking about the Influence of the tumour suppressor p53 on human innate immune responses. “ Since p53 is the most altered gene in human cancers, our findings about p53 regulating the expression central components of the innate immunity have many implications for understanding the impact p53 in immunological responses and cancer therapy” (Dr Daniel Menendez).
Those interested in the role of the innate immune system in health and disease and in therapeutic strategies to modulate the immune response would benefit from attending. This includes research scientists and academics, physicians and clinicians, and those who work within the industry
We encourage questions, discussion and debate and have a relaxed atmosphere which generates maximum interaction online.
After registration you will be connected to an online networking site where you will be able to have discussions with all participants of this event, before, during and after the meeting.
The event will be recorded and available for all registered delegates up to a month after the event. So if you can’t manage all the days, or the different time zones, you can still have access to the full event.
