Cell death is a key driver of human disease and processes linked to cell death, such as autophagy, further impact immune function compounding disease pathology. Thus, non-apoptotic cell death modalities (pyroptosis and necroptosis) are currently being investigated as opportunities for therapeutic intervention however the molecular pathways and physiological mechanisms controlling the dysfunction are ill-defined. In order to address this important knowledge gap, this symposium will present breaking research mapping the mechanisms by which cell death contributes to homeostasis and human disease, outlining mechanisms of cell clearance, impact on pathogenesis, and implication for therapeutics.
