Immunology of Fungal Infections Gordon Research Conference (GRC)
Hotel Galvez

Galveston, Texas

     *  Registration Deadline:
       26th December 2010

   Fungal diseases have emerged as major causes of morbidity and
   mortality in immunocompromised individuals. A fine-tuned immune
   response is critical, as either insufficient or exaggerated responses
   compromise the host's ability to eradicate fungal infection. The last
   few years has seen significant advances in our understanding of the
   innate and adaptive components underlying the protective and
   non-protective mechanisms of immunity. These discoveries allow a
   better understanding of immunodeficiency and disease susceptibility,
   and provide a means to develop novel approaches for immunotherapy and
   vaccination. Similarly important is the contribution of fungi to the
   plasticity of the immune system, from tolerance to autoimmunity. This
   conference will bring together, for the first time, the world's
   leading researchers investigating anti-fungal immunity, in a setting
   ideal for promoting cross-disciplinary discussions and collaborations.
   This will provide a compelling and informative meeting covering the
   latest advances in the field and the most pressing issues to be
