Apresentação/General Information
Second Symposium on Regulation of the Immune Response in Chronic Inflammatory Diseases
October 17 to 19, 2022
Fundação Oswaldo Cruz, Palácio Itaboraí, Rua Visconde de Itaboraí 188, Valparaiso, Petrópolis, RJ 25655-030, Brazil. Phone: +55-24-2246-1430.
The symposium will be held both in person, as well as online (live streaming). Please, check your preferred option on the registration form.
Summary of the meeting:
The regulation of the immune response in chronic infectious and noninfectious inflammatory diseases is a central element in the pathogenesis and evolution of diseases of great importance in Brazil and other countries. The researchers invited to this course will discuss new possibilities in different areas, including:
- mechanisms of negative regulation of effector function that are present in infectious diseases such as leprosy and leishmaniasis and also in malignant tumors and autoimmune diseases;
- single-cell gene expression analysis; epigenomics
- multiparametric approaches for the analysis of cell populations and molecules in blood and lesions that open new possibilities in the prevention and control of relevant health problems;
- multiparametric analysis of leukocytes and other cells in the course of chronic inflammatory responses.
- Allow graduate students and research professionals to have an up-to-date view of regulation of chronic inflammation in infectious diseases such as leprosy and leishmaniasis, and also in neoplasms and autoimmune diseases.
- Favor a discussion of recent advances in the evaluation of immune and inflammatory response parameters in blood and tissues. Methods such as multiparametric leukocyte analysis and metabolomics applied to chronic infection will be discussed in the context of relevant diseases in Brazil.
- Allow students, research professionals and teams of FIOCRUZ platforms to discuss their projects and plans in single-cell sequencing, multiparametric flow cytometry and new methods for dimensional reduction in data analysis.
- Open new opportunities in international collaboration for interested researchers and students.
