We are pleased to announce the 2nd Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Fundamental Immunology & Its Therapeutic Potential, which will begin on Tuesday evening, April 25 and end at noon on Saturday, April 29, 2017. The meeting will have a unique focus aimed at enhancing fundamental immunology research while speeding the translation of basic immunology discoveries to the clinic.

The immunology field has entered an exciting new era in which our expanding knowledge of immune regulation is leading to innovative new therapies for the treatment of cancer, infectious diseases, autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, and other diseases. Future clinical advances will continue to be driven by fundamental discoveries, highlighting the importance of strong interactions between basic and translational researchers. Furthermore, it has been firmly established that research advances originally made while studying one type of disease can lead to important therapeutic advances in another disease. One striking example is the remarkable success of checkpoint blockage therapies for the treatment of cancer, drawing on initial fundamental studies in infectious disease models.

With these issues in mind, the objective of this new meeting will be to bring leading senior and junior investigators working on fundamental questions in immunology together with an equally strong group of researchers who have had experience and success translating fundamental advances to the clinic. The meeting will also promote interactions between researchers working on diverse diseases, by including cancer, infectious diseases, autoimmunity and other relevant diseases
  • Host-pathogen interactions
  • Immunity and immune pathology
  • Neo-antigens and the tumor microenvironment
  • Intestinal immune responses and homeostasis
  • Adoptive cell therapy
  • Checkpoint blockade therapies
  • Autoimmunity and regulatory T cells
  • Anti-microbial immunity and vaccines

The format of the meeting will include eight oral sessions and two poster sessions. Each oral session will include invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts. For this reason, abstracts from accomplished junior and senior investigators are warmly invited. The abstracts should focus on new and unpublished data. The organizers will select abstracts for oral or poster presentations. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site (below) as soon as decisions have been made. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs.

Any questions about registration, abstract submission or financial assistance should be directed to Val Pakaluk.

We hope to see you at Cold Spring Harbor in April.
