Cell Dynamics: Host-Pathogen Interface

Organisers: Michaela Gack, Maximiliano Gutierrez, Dominique Soldati-Favre and Michael Way

Date: 17 - 20 May 2020

Location: Wotton House, Surrey, UK

This meeting will be the third instalment of our highly successful Cellular Dynamics Meeting Series, and will focus on ‘Host-Pathogen Interface’. Intracellular pathogens highjack and use the cellular systems of their unwilling hosts to ensure their continued survival, replication and spread. The relative simplicity of many pathogens and the ability to manipulate them genetically has made them ideal model systems to analyse fundamental cellular and biological processes, including cell death and innate immunity. This meeting represents a unique opportunity to bring together many different experts working at the interface between cell biology and a diverse range of pathogens. With talks from an outstanding list of speakers and selected delegates, we hope to educate and inspire PIs, postdocs and students and to delve further into this important area of research.

Topics include:

  • Membrane trafficking and organelles
  • Phagocytosis and pathogen entry
  • Cytoskeleton
  • Innate Immunity and pathogen sensing
  • Advanced imaging
  • Autophagy and cell death

About our Journal Meetings

The teams behind our journals bring you the most relevant and challenging topics for discussion through a series of international meetings.

Important meetings serving the communities around our journals.

Each meeting is individually crafted to suit the topic and audience, ranging from small intimate meetings with a focus on intense and detailed discussion to larger meetings with a focus on networking and opportunities for attendees to more widely share their latest research.

Themes explored in the Journal Meetings go on to be discussed in the Company’s journals, helping to shape the field and even the journals themselves.

About our Workshops

The Company of Biologists is widely known for its excellence in scientific publishing and it now runs a successful high level series of Workshops. The Workshops provide leading experts and early career scientists from a diverse range of scientific backgrounds with a stimulating environment for the cross fertilization of interdisciplinary ideas. The programmes are carefully developed and are intended to champion the novel techniques and innovations that will underpin important scientific advances.

Propose a new Workshop

If you have a vision for such a meeting but don’t have the time to arrange the logistics or raise the funding, then please contact us. We are seeking proposals for future Workshops and provide all necessary support.
