Innate Immune Memory

International Conference on Innate Immune Memory

Drs. Sylvia & Richard Cruess Amphitheatre & Elspeth McConnell Atrium
1001 boul. Décarie, Montréal, QC, Block E

November 12-13, 2020

Immunological memory is a protective host defense strategy against infectious diseases previously thought to only exist in species with adaptive immune systems. However, it has recently become clear that the innate immune system of primitive and advanced species also exhibits memory-like characteristics, a trait termed “trained immunity”. This conference will focus on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying trained immunity, from its evolutionary roots to its clinical relevance for vaccine development and therapeutic targeting. By bringing together an international group of investigators and trainees, this meeting will advance the dialogue and scientific networks related to the nascent field of trained immunity and its relevance for health and disease.
