Keystone Symposia: Role of the Genital Tract Microbiome in Sexual and Reproductive Health
11 Dec 2018 - 15 Dec 2018 • Cape Town, South Africa
Abstract:
Bacteria and fungi residing in the female genital tract have been associated with elevated risks of HIV acquisition and transmission, pelvic inflammatory disease, miscarriage, preterm birth, and invasive maternal and neonatal infections. The increased availability of high throughput genomic testing since the turn of the century has revealed a more detailed picture of these organisms than was possible when evaluation depended on microscopy and culture. The interrelationships between sexually transmitted infections, vaginal dysbiosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis, and vaginal pathobiont carriage are being elucidated, and their effects on the cervicovaginal mucosal barrier and immune system are being characterized. The mechanisms that may lead to adverse outcomes are being unraveled, and an increasing number of interventions are in clinical trials. In this meeting, the current understanding of female and male genital tract microbiology and immunology, including functional microbiology and biofilms, will be presented and knowledge gaps identified. Potential mechanisms leading to adverse outcomes, and a variety of potential prevention and/or treatment interventions, will be presented and discussed. The exponential progress made in recent years will hopefully lead to efficacious public health interventions to reduce the high prevalence of adverse sexual and reproductive health outcomes in women, especially in resource-poor settings.

Keystone Symposia: Integrated Pathways of Disease in NASH and NAFLD
20 Jan 2019 - 24 Jan 2019 • Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract:
The global prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has risen precipitously over the past two decades in parallel with the worldwide obesity epidemic; however, there are no approved therapies. The more advanced form of the disease, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), is associated with progressive fibrosis and an increased risk of liver cancer. Despite the growing number of systemic and liver-specific abnormalities identified in patients with NAFLD, a clear hierarchy of the relative importance of specific defects has not emerged. Furthermore, a clear understanding of which individuals are at highest risk for progression to advanced liver disease and cancer remains elusive. Thus, the field lacks an integrated understanding of risk prediction, pathogenesis and validated biomarkers to predict or track disease progression without reliance on liver biopsies. Therefore, the goals of this conference are to: 1) Explore genetic and ethnic contributions to NAFLD development; 2) Clarify underlying pathogenic defects in NAFLD and NASH, focusing on the specific contributions of lipotoxicity, the microbiome, innate immune signaling and drivers of fibrosis; and 3) Highlight emerging prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers that are yielding new, more streamlined clinical trial designs to evaluate novel therapies. As a result of this conference, attendees should gain a more holistic understanding of the unmet needs and new paths to advancing our understanding of NAFLD pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy. The multidisciplinary nature of the topics and speakers promises to generate novel insights that represent convergent expertise and opinion. In doing so, new paradigms are likely to emerge that greatly inform the expanding number of emerging diagnostic markers and therapeutic agents. The conference comes at a propitious time when there is already sufficient basic translational and clinical research to extract important new insights, focus on unmet needs and refine research strategies for the future

Keystone Symposia: Transcription and RNA Regulation in Inflammation and Immunity
02 Feb 2019 - 05 Feb 2019 • Lake Tahoe, California, United States
Abstract:
The immune system is a heavily armed but carefully tuned defense that must mount protective responses against invading pathogens, while at the same time avoiding excessive inflammation and inappropriate responses that can lead to severe tissue damage and disease. Properly regulated immune responses are the result of a complex interplay between chromatin modifications, transcription factors and post-transcriptional regulators that operate collectively within each cell to regulate the gene expression programs that control immune cell differentiation, maintenance of cell identity, and the orchestration of functional responses in a dynamic environment. Recent technical advances in genomics and single-cell analyses have brought new ideas and perspectives to investigation of the regulation of gene expression, and our understanding of the mechanisms and regulatory networks that operate in the immune system is advancing at an unprecedented rate. This conference will be important to define the most impactful open questions and future challenges in the field of transcriptional and post-transcriptional control of immune cells, and it will bring together rapidly expanding and evolving communities. The exchange of scientific knowledge and technical capabilities will foster opportunities for collaborations and interdisciplinary interactions among groups of scientists working on disparate aspects of regulation of gene expression in inflammation and immunity, highlighting the latest innovations and discoveries while shaping future directions for the field.

Keystone Symposia: Molecular Approaches to Vaccines and Immune Monitoring
10 Feb 2019 - 14 Feb 2019 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Vaccines address public health issues ranging from pandemic outbreaks to childhood disease. Despite this diversity, molecular approaches are beginning to find broad application. This Keystone Symposia conference seeks to bring together antibody aficionados, B cell immunologists, structural biologists and vaccine developers from government, academia, biotechnology and major pharmaceutical companies to review the utility of structure-based vaccine design and antibody-based immune monitoring, with the ultimate aspiration of transforming standard approaches of vaccine development. More specifically, the conference aims to: 1) Provide examples of the ”antibody-to-vaccine” paradigm for RSV, CMV and other pathogens that have resisted standard vaccinology; 2) Detail procedures whereby B cells can be taught to make the right antibodies; 3) Describe molecular approaches for vaccine improvement; and 4) Discuss how molecular approaches can be used to speed development (as may be needed, for example, in the case of pandemics) and to reduce developmental and regulatory costs (for vaccines in general and in particular to enable provision to the developing world). Overall, the conference seeks to integrate molecular approaches for vaccine development and read-out with other transformative advances including mRNA delivery, next-generation sequencing of B cell transcripts, and control of B cell-T cell interactions, the topic of the jointly held Keystone Symposia conference.

Keystone Symposia: B Cell-T Cell Interactions
10 Feb 2019 - 14 Feb 2019 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
B cell-T cell interactions underlie the maturation and production of high-affinity antibodies, and are thus key to the establishment of effective humoral immunity. While this greatly enhances our ability to fight pathogens, it also can lead to the development of allergies and autoimmune disease. While recent years have seen a burst in our understanding of how B cell-T cell interactions drive antibody affinity maturation, a number of gaps remain, including how these interactions influence the differentiation of B cells into effector fates and how they limit the emergence of autoreactive B cell clones. Most importantly, from the vaccine standpoint, it is likely that better understanding of how T cells help shape the B cell repertoire will allow us to better control the specificity of vaccine-induced immune responses. The aim of this Keystone Symposia conference are to: 1) Present the most recent advances in the basic biology of the T cell-dependent B cell response, focusing on Tfh development and function and B cell activation and differentiation; 2) Address the gap in our understanding of the differentiation of B cells into post-activation (memory and plasma cell) fates; 3) Discuss how furthering our understanding of B-T cell interactions can inform vaccine development; and 4) Present recent findings regarding the role of T-dependent B cell response in allergy and autoimmunity.

Type2Immunity19 — Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease (In collaboration with CellPress)
21 Feb 2019 - 22 Feb 2019 • Brugge, Belgium
Abstract:
Type 2 inflammation rich in eosinophils, basophils and mast cells and orchestrated by Th2 lymphocytes has been mainly studied in the context of allergies and immune responses to helminths. Since the discovery of type 2 innate lymphoid cells there has been a strong interest in understanding how type 2 immunity is induced and regulated, for example by barrier epithelial cells.Given the recent introduction of new biologics that target type 2 cytokines to treat severe allergic disease, we are accumulating a lot of new insights on type 2 immune responses in humans as well.This meeting will not only focus on new effector and regulatory mechanisms of the type 2 immune response. It will also offer a number of talks taking a broader look on type 2 immunity, dealing with such topics as type 2 immunity in homeostasis, growth and repair, metabolism, neuro-immune interactions and cancer.Understanding these alternative roles for type 2 immunity will be important to address the benefits and potential pitfalls of long-term inhibition of type 2 immunity by biologicals and could elucidate new therapeutic pathways for very common diseases like asthma, obesity, diabetes and cancer.

EMBL Course: Humanized Mice in Biomedicine: Challenges and Innovations
03 Nov 2019 - 08 Nov 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
In the last decade, several new genetically modified immune deficient mouse strains have been developed. They allowed high levels of engraftment of the human immune system, tissues and tumours. These models have become highly relevant for basic research to understand the function of the human immune system and the development of human pathologies (infections and cancer) in vivo. They are also being increasingly used as potency and safety models to evaluate new therapies and approaches in regenerative medicine prior to testing in humans. This course will cover all aspects of the topic, including conceptual and technical classes on human stem cell transplantation and immune reconstitution, infections with human-specific pathogens (EBV, HIV, HCV, HBV, Ebola, Adenovirus), in vivo modelling using patient-derived xenografts (PDX) of solid tumours and leukaemia models as well as regenerative approaches for the liver.
