Immunologic Memory

  June 15, 2006  

Keystone Symposia, Santa Fe, New Mexico
March 3 - 8, 2007

Immune memory has a critical role in mediating protection against infections as well as potentiating allergic and autoimmune diseases. Hence a thorough understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating adaptive memory immunity will have potentially important clinical application. Recent developments in how the innate immune response influences adaptive immunity combined with better methods to characterize the phenotype, magnitude and functional quality of such responses have substantially improved our understanding in this area. Major problems still relate to difficulties in eliciting long-term T cell responses with current vaccines in humans. The goals of the meeting will be to focus on basic mechanisms regarding how T and B cells are programmed to elicit and sustain immunity. The program is designed to integrate information from both mouse and humans studies to encompass all relevant areas related to control of memory T and B cell responses. In summary, this meeting should greatly enhance translational research that will impact vaccines and interventions for infectious disease, cancer and autoimmune/allergic diseases.
