B-Cells in Injury and Regeneration – BIR Conference, Organized by Ruxandra Sîrbulescu and Mark C. Poznansky, Vaccine & Immunotherapy Center
This one-day symposium will bring together experts in B cell biology to discuss the potential of B cell application in the context of injury and tissue repair, as well as inflammatory disease. This topic, with both fundamental and clinical implications, has been the object of a number of studies over the past decade, and the mechanisms underlying this neglected potential of B cells are being increasingly elucidated. Discussions will focus on the regulatory, immunomodulatory, and pro-regenerative functions of B cells in diverse model systems, from brain injury and stroke to wound healing, to organ transplantation.
