We are pleased to host the eleventh Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Microbial Pathogenesis and Host Response, which will begin at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, September 12, conclude Friday evening with a banquet and departures on Saturday morning, September 16, 2017. The meeting will focus on interdisciplinary approaches to study infectious diseases integrating the disciplines of molecular microbiology, eukaryotic cell biology, immunology, and genomics. The meeting will provide an in depth focus on the approaches that are being used to elucidate the mechanisms of bacterial and fungal pathogenesis, and promote the application of these concepts to understanding the evolution of emerging diseases.

Sessions will integrate studies on bacterial and fungal pathogens. The oral sessions will begin with 3-4 invited talks by established leaders in the field, followed by several shorter talks chosen from submitted abstracts. We strongly encourage submission of abstracts by junior researchers in the field.

Please bring this notice to the attention of any of your colleagues who may be interested in participating in the meeting.

All registrations and abstracts must be submitted by the abstract deadline, June 23, 2017. Late registration may be accepted after the abstract deadline if the meeting is not oversubscribed. In the event of over-subscription, every effort will be made to ensure that all groups who wish to participate will be represented. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to Maureen Morrow stating need for financial support. 

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in September.
