RODRIGUEZ-ALONSO, Ingrid et al. Report of the Conference on Immunological Mechanisms of Vaccination; December 13-18, 2012, Ottawa, Canada. Biotecnol Apl [online]. 2013, vol.30, n.3, pp.216-221. ISSN 1027-2852.

The conference Immunological Mechanisms of Vaccination of the Keystone Symposia was held on December 13-18, 2012, in Ottawa, Canada. There were more than 400 participants from all over the world in the field of immunology and vaccine research. During five days, attendees had the possibility to present and discuss their current work and also to encourage new collaborations. Fifty-five oral presentations were grouped in seven sessions according to the following topics: Innate sensing of pathogens and vaccines, Augmenting immune response to vaccines, T and B cell memory to vaccines, Understanding signatures of vaccine protective efficacy, Translating immunity to vaccines and Vaccines against global threats. Additionally, more than 240 posters were presented and two workshops on Novel adjuvants and Vaccine delivery were organized. The quality of the papers presented at this conference shows that there is a global concern in eradicating chronic and re-emerging infectious diseases. Currently, a special attention is focused to the search for new and potent adjuvants and delivery systems that allows the generation of the immune response at the systemic and mucosal compartments to increase vaccine efficacy .

Keywords : vaccine; infectious disease; delivery system; adjuvant; immune system.
