Tuberculosis: Immunity and Immune Evasion (A2)
Tuberculosis: Immunity and Immune Evasion (A2) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Jan 16 - 20, 2020 at Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America.
Tuberculosis remains the most common fatal infectious disease worldwide due to the absence of a sufficiently effective vaccine. Two critical barriers to the development of an effective TB vaccine are the incomplete understanding of the mechanisms of protective immunity to TB, and of the mechanisms of immune evasion by M. tuberculosis. The interactions among speakers and attendees at this conference will promote collaborations between scientists with complementary expertise and that work in geographically distinct institutions, including those in high TB burden regions. This conference will present new knowledge on mechanisms of protective immunity to M. tuberculosis, and promote dialogue between immunologists and scientists, in different areas of expertise, to fill gaps in knowledge. Participants will also discuss advances in TB vaccine development and vaccine immunology. Finally, this conference will cover topics on the advances in other fields of immunology and other infectious diseases characterized by pathogen persistence which will help to inform development of effective TB vaccines.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
