Summary of Meeting:
The fields of macrophage and dendritic cell biology diverged decades ago and have evolved in a relatively independent fashion. In particular, dendritic cell meetings are devoting considerable attention to adaptive immune responses while macrophage meetings focus on innate immunity. Yet, it is clear that both cell types share many common properties and eventually contribute to a protective immunity. This meeting therefore aims to reunite the two communities of scientists. The meeting is equally divided into basic biology and sessions dedicated to the importance of these cells in pathology including allergy, autoimmunity, cancer and infectious disease. Emphasis is on human diseases in order to educate and engage physician-scientists, both trained and in training.
