Despite decades of study, the mechanisms determining host vulnerability versus resistance to pathogens remain poorly defined. This has impeded the rational design of vaccines and other forms of immunologic intervention.
This symposium will discuss new developments and approaches for overcoming critical gaps in our understanding of the pathogenesis of infectious diseases and immunity to infection.
Experts will discuss aspects of the host-pathogen interaction at the molecular, cellular, organism and population levels with the goal of identifying critical determinants that dictate whether this encounter leads to resistance or disease.
