Influenza meeting summary

With a global influenza pandemic currently underway and yet another flu seasonal upon us, influenza virus is on the minds of many. With each passing pandemic and season, new insights are gained about the biology of the virus, the host immune response, and the ability of the virus to overcome species barriers and host-immune defenses. The broader goal of every influenza researcher is to extrapolate these basic insights for better control of disease and to develop better vaccines and anti-virals. This meeting aims to facilitate the larger goal of influenza research by bringing together scientists studying the virus and its host at a basic level, those studying the current H1N1 pandemic, as well as disease and clinical manifestations of seasonal influenza, and scientists actively working to develop better vaccines and therapeutics in an industrial setting.

This meeting aims to bring basic scientists, clinicians, epidemiologists and applied biotechnology and pharmaceutical researchers together to build a translational bridge between basic influenza research and the development of drugs, vaccines and diagnostics for the flu.

Cell Host and Microbe

Cell Cell 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).

CellCell is the premier journal of the life sciences, publishing the highest quality research across a broad range of disciplines. Cells 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.

ImmunityAs 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.
