The Molecular Mechanisms of Immune Cell Development and Function Conference
July 31–August 4, 2022
Nova Scotia, Canada
July 31-August 4, 2022
The meeting’s primary goal is to illuminate overlapping and contrasting molecular mechanisms to better understand the complex regulatory circuits that control development and function across the spectrum of immune cell types. The program aims to reveal unexpected synergies between areas of molecular immunology that are often treated as being distinct.
The conference brings together investigators focused on adaptive and innate immune cell biology who work at the molecular, genomic, and systems levels. An important function of the program is the interactions between young scientists—postdocs, graduate students, and early career independent investigators—and national and international experts with wide ranging interests in an open atmosphere of scientiﬁc exchange.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
- Cell interactions and signals controlling T cell development
- Innate immune cell development and function
- Chromatin control of immune cell gene expression and function
- Dissecting the immune response to cancer
- Transcriptomic and epigenomic analysis of lymphocyte diﬀerentiation
- Mechanisms of antigen receptor gene rearrangement and diversiﬁcation
- Immune eﬀector cell diﬀerentiation
- Genome architecture and dynamics in immune cells
- Immune system interactions with microorganisms: homeostasis and autoimmunity
- Control of normal and leukemic B cell diﬀerentiation
The “Meet the Expert” sessions take place during meals, with invited speakers interspersed with other attendees to allow for extended interactions.The two Career Development Workshops address timely topics for students and early-career professionals: "Getting the Most from Your Training" and "Transitioning to Independence in Academia and Industry."

For in-person posters used during the poster session, the Poster board size is 4 feet tall (122 cm) and 8 feet wide (243 cm) so the size of the poster itself needs to be less than that. More instructions will be provided in an email one week prior to the event.
Online or by phone at 1(800) 565-5075 - Choose “GROUP ID 2710” for the discounted rate either online or on the phone.

These awards have been established to support the participation of students, postdoctoral trainees, and early-career faculty for this conference. An important goal of these awards is to encourage the participation of scientists from underrepresented backgrounds and to recognize efforts to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion in our field. Those who wish to be considered for this travel award should submit an application. Award winners will present a short talk or poster at the conference and must participate in the entire conference. "Early-career" faculty are defined as those who are within six years of starting their faculty position at the time of the conference. Download application information and instructions here.
