Abstract:

Understanding microbial pathogenesis demands a detailed knowledge of the host response as well as the pathogen itself, and requires an interdisciplinary approach, integrating the fields of microbiology, eukaryotic cell biology, and immunology. The Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Microbial Pathogenesis and Host Response was planned to facilitate such interactions. The meeting attracted 268 international scientists who approach the study of bacterial and fungal pathogens from a broad range of perspectives. The meeting included 57 talks and 140 posters. Each session focused on a specific mechanism of virulence in bacteria and fungi. Each session was littered with significant new insights into the microbial- host interaction. A few highlights of these sessions are described below.
