Cell Dynamics: Host-Pathogen Interface

Wotton House, GB

Attendance type(s): In Person

Event Dates: 17—20 May 2020

This meeting will be the third instalment of our highly successful Cellular Dynamics Meeting Series, and will focus on ‘Host-Pathogen Interface’. Intracellular pathogens highjack and use the cellular systems of their unwilling hosts to ensure their continued survival, replication and spread. The relative simplicity of many pathogens and the ability to manipulate them genetically has made them ideal model systems to analyse fundamental cellular and biological processes, including cell death and innate immunity. This meeting represents a unique opportunity to bring together many different experts working at the interface between cell biology and a diverse range of pathogens. With talks from an outstanding list of speakers and selected delegates, we hope to educate and inspire PIs, postdocs and students and to delve further into this important area of research.

Topics include:

Membrane trafficking and organelles
Phagocytosis and pathogen entry
Innate Immunity and pathogen sensing
Advanced imaging
Autophagy and cell death
