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.

Keystone Symposia: Innate Immune Receptors - Roles in Immunology and Beyond
24 Mar 2019 - 28 Mar 2019 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Immunotherapy has revolutionized the treatment of many cancer types over the past five years. T cell checkpoint inhibitors have led the way and are the focus of most immunotherapy trials. However, innate and non-classical T cells contribute extensively to the tumor infiltrate and significantly affect the tumor immune response both in the tumor microenvironment and in circulation. This symposium aims to bring together academic and industry opinion leaders in the fields of innate immune cells, natural killer cells, tumor microenvironment, tumor immune suppression, novel immunotherapeutic strategies and clinical cancer immunotherapy to define the next wave of immunotherapy breakthroughs that reach beyond the current T cell checkpoints. The conference offers a unique opportunity for an audience of diverse immunology and cancer research backgrounds to come together and share cutting-edge insight into cancer immunology and rational approaches for therapeutic intervention that could be used as stand-alone or in combination with T cell checkpoint therapies.

Abstract:
The Immunometabolism field continues to provide fascinating insights into the role of metabolites in controlling immune effector responses in both host defense and inflammation. New information is emerging on how metabolic reprogramming can directly govern cell responses, both in innate and adaptive immunity with new therapeutic possibilities on the horizon.
