Technological developments such as next-generation sequencing, super-resolution imaging, and systems-level computational approaches have resulted in great leaps in our understanding of the immune system. Despite these advances, many autoimmune diseases lack effective treatments; and the current pandemic has shown the critical need to better understand the immune system in order to harness it to develop vaccines and therapeutics.

To understand mechanisms that govern innate and adaptive immune responses in infection, neurodevelopment, and inflammatory diseases, this 2-day symposium will convene researchers across the spectrum of immunology to discuss basic immunological questions with the ultimate goal of identifying novel therapeutic strategies for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, infection, and cancer.

Session topics include immune system homeostasis, long-term consequences of inflammation, neuroimmunology, immunological memory, and systems imunology.
