Immunology of Fungal Infections

Bringing together the future leaders with current senior scientists working at the forefront of innovative research in medical mycology and fungal immunology, the Gordon Research Seminar on Immunology of Fungal Infections is a uniquely designed opportunity for graduate students, post-docs and young faculty from around the globe to foster future networks, collaborations and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. Fungal diseases, caused by a variety of different fungal species infecting plants and vertebrates, are on the rise and pose a growing threat to global health and economy. In humans, fungal infections, caused by endogenous and environmental species, mainly occur in individuals with compromised immune status. Here, they can develop into life-threatening invasive infections with high mortality rate. The initial induction, the fine-tuning and the maintenance of a balanced immune response are key to the resolution of an infection. In this context, recent research has highlighted important aspects of fungal recognition by host cells, and the subsequent induction of innate and adaptive responses, but also fungal strategies to counteract this defence system. Moreover, additional features that modulate the hosts' defence, which include cell metabolism, nutritional immunity, innate imprinting and the influence of the host microbiota on host-pathogen interactions have risen. This Gordon Research Seminar will focus on these recent insights into the complex interplay between the host and pathogen. The program will discuss fundamental concepts and new advances in the field and will give a unique opportunity for young scientists to engage with the fungal immunology community. Application Instructions The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract. The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by October 14, 2016. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
