Bethesda, MD This FASEB Science Research Conference provides a small meeting forum for cutting-edge research in basic immunology. The objective of the meeting is to critically evaluate recent advances in fundamental immunology and to encourage vigorous discussion of unresolved and emerging areas of major interest to the field. The emphasis of this meeting is on the development and workings of the immune system in vivo.
The eight major scientific sessions will cover the broad scope of immunobiology and reflect a growing emphasis on understanding immune responses in humans. The meeting format intentionally avoids a traditional "cell type" oriented approach, emphasizing instead the in vivo initiation, progression, and conclusion of immune responses. This will promote communication and cross-fertilization between various sectors of the immunology research community, with particular emphasis on integrating current understanding of innate and adaptive immunity.
This meeting typically appeals to all facets of the academic research community, as well as to colleagues in clinical, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical research endeavors. In addition, the 2014 meeting includes a "Meet the Experts" mentoring session for trainees and young investigators. Together, the content and format of this meeting provides all participants with an exciting and challenging learning experience, as well as the opportunity to interact in a relaxed and collegial atmosphere.
