Inflammation and disease meeting summary

Inflammation is a common but multifaceted process that underlies diseases ranging from autoimmunity to obesity. This meeting aims to bring together researchers with an interest in inflammation from seemingly disparate fields to better understand the complex underlying biology across diseases. The meeting will emphasize discussions and interactions among the participants to facilitate innovative thinking about cell types, mediators and pathways in inflammation that may be applicable to their own area or research, and perhaps forge collaboration to pursue new or previously intractable questions based on complementary expertise and mutual interest. The meeting will explore aspects of inflammation in five separate categories: autoimmunity, infectious disease, metabolism, cancer and the nervous system.


  • Inflammation in autoimmunity
  • Inflammation in infectious disease
  • Inflammation in metabolic disease
  • Inflammation in cancer
  • Inflammation in the nervous system

As one of the highest impact journals in its field, Immunity provides a prestigious forum for the discussion of various topics across the domain of immunology. Subjects encompass all aspects of the immune system, focusing on fundamental principles and mechanistic insight for the molecular and cellular immunology of infectious and autoimmune diseases, allergy, transplantation, and cancer.

CellCell is the premier journal of the life sciences, publishing the highest quality research across a broad range of disciplines. Cell’s distinctive narrative format provides authors with enough space to tell a full and complete story and creates a unique opportunity to promote interdisciplinary thinking across fields. The combination of editorial excellence and full-length presentation ensures the value of Cell both to its authors who know their work will be seen and appreciated by a broad readership and to its readers who can inform their own research with conceptual advances from other fields.

Cell Host &  MicrobeCell Host & Microbe provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and concepts between scientists studying the microbe with those studying the host immune and cell biological response upon colonization or infection by a microbe.  The journal publishes on a wide range of topics related to microbes (which includes bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses), from molecular and cellular biology to translational studies with particular emphasis on the interface between the microbe and its host (vertebrate, invertebrate or plant).

Cancer CellCancer Cell has made itself indispensable to the cancer community by publishing groundbreaking papers, reviews, and analysis spanning the spectrum of cancer research, from molecular biology to clinical biology, becoming the leading research journal in the field of oncology. Cancer Cell appeals in equal measure to both clinical oncologists and basic researchers studying the molecular mechanisms underlying cancer and cancer therapy. It is an invaluable resource for all investigators in the cancer field in basic and clinical research, academia, the clinic, and industry.

NeuronFor more than 20 years, Neuron has been one of the most influential and relied upon journals in the field of neuroscience. Neuron publishes research on topics spanning the breadth of neuroscience, from molecular and physiological mechanisms of development and function to diseases of the nervous system and higher-level systems and cognitive studies. In addition to seminal research findings, Neuron also publishes a broad array of review material, including Previews, Minireviews, and Reviews, whose content is aimed at providing broad-spectrum coverage of recent developments in neuroscience, making Neuron a “must-read” for all neuroscientists.

Cell MetabolismCell Metabolism publishes reports of novel results in all areas of metabolic biology, from molecular and cellular biology to translational studies. The journal focuses on the molecular mechanisms underlying physiology and homeostasis, in health and disease, and from simpler model systems all the way to the clinic. In addition, Cell Metabolism publishes expert analysis and commentary on key findings in the field.
