Keystone Symposia: Tuberculosis - Mechanisms, Pathogenesis and Treatment
17 Jan 2019 - 21 Jan 2019 • Banff, Alberta, United States
Abstract:
The tuberculosis (TB) research and development landscape has seen many exciting breakthroughs over the past two decades. New diagnostics have emerged; innovative research has significantly reduced biological uncertainties; two novel drugs were launched; and public-private partnerships are dedicating massive efforts to dramatically shorten TB therapy, tackle resistant disease and discover new vaccines. Despite these achievements, TB remains the leading infectious disease cause of death globally. Meanwhile, shifts in funding priorities and a false sense of success could threaten the current focus and momentum, which would have catastrophic consequences. The broad themes covered in the main conference program and the three workshops will achieve the following aims: 1) To re-ignite collaborative and multidisciplinary research by bringing together experts in basic science, translational research, and drug discovery and development; 2) To bring together young brilliant minds and established investigators to encourage new discussions and the exchange of innovative ideas for strategies moving forward; and 3) To foster cross-fertilization at the interface between research and development, all aspects of which are critical if we are to tackle the TB pandemic and achieve the next innovation leap.

EASL-AASLD HCV Special Conference 2019
01 Feb 2019 - 02 Feb 2019 • Miami, United States
Abstract:
The goal of the conference is to promote global elimination of hepatitis C infection. World leaders in the related disciplines will assemble to establish the current state of the science and public health challenges. The experts will then formulate the most effective future steps toward elimination.

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.
