EMBO | EMBL Symposium
This symposium provides a discussion platform for all scientists interested in the biology of infection. Cell biologists, microbiologists and immunologists will discuss in joint sessions recent progress in our understanding of host-pathogen interactions. Talks will focus on common processes, rather than particular infectious agents or host cell types, and the strategies of all major types of pathogens in their interaction with plants and animals will be covered. A better understanding of infectious diseases will come from the simultaneous analysis of microbial and host variables, which may open new avenues for treatment and prevention strategies.
“This was my first conference at EMBL. It was well organised and I loved it! The topics covered under the umbrella of innate immune response were diverse. As a beginner in the field of immunology, this conference has cleared up lots of concepts.” – Sadaf Sulman, University of Leicester, UK
“The meeting had a great balance of breadth and depth, presenting the most current work in host-pathogen interactions.” – Elizabeth Hartland, Hudson Institute of Medical Research, Australia
“EMBL conferences are always of exceptional quality. It was no different this time. I had an amazing experience and was able to network effectively.” – Sudeep Bhushal, Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, Germany

EMBO | EMBL Symposia promote scientific communication and collaboration in the European research area. They provide scientists with a platform to discuss and exchange ideas on forward-looking topics and new developments in the life sciences.
Topics emphasise upcoming developments and the interdisciplinary nature of related fields. Jointly funded and organised by EMBO and EMBL – and complementary to their respective courses, workshops, and conference programmes – the symposia promote scientific communication and collaboration.
All symposia are held in the EMBL Advanced Training Centre (ATC) in Heidelberg, Germany, or virtually.
Date: 17 - 20 Jul 2022
