Fungi in the setting of Inflammation, Allergy and Autoimmune Diseases:
Translating Basic Science into Clinical Practices
Palazzo Murena - University Of Perugia
Perugia, Italy, 29-30 August 2013
Scope of the meeting
The meeting will be organized with the Support of the Specific Targeted Research Projects ‘‘ALLFUN’’ (FP7-HEALTH-2010-260338), within the HEALTH-2010.2.4.5-2: Infections and dysbiosis as the triggers of the development of inflammatory processes in allergies and autoimmune diseases. This will be an international forum for the presentation and discussion of advances in understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which ubiquitous airborne or commensal fungi contribute to immune homeostasis and its dysregulation leading to inflammatory diseases. The Meeting aims to bring together a consortium of leaders in the fields of fungal pathology and immunopathology, functional genomics and bioinformatics for comprehensive analysis at the systems biology levels of fungal infections and diseases, from basic science to the clinic.
The Satellite Meeting will cover the following topics in the field:
- Fungi, immunity and immune dysregulation.
- Fungi, adaptation and immune dysregulation.
- Genetic signatures of susceptibility to fungal infections and diseases.
- Antifungal vaccines in the era of vaccinomics.
- The microbioma/host/fungus dialogue.
- From basic science to the clinic.
