The Golden Anniversary of B Cell Discovery

The 2015 meeting marks the golden anniversary of the discovery of B cells by Max Cooper and Robert Good in their classic Nature paper. Each topical session begins with a commentary on the history of the area, followed by presentations of the most current advances. Particular emphasis is placed on B cell immunopoiesis in germinal centers, on the interaction of B cells with follicular-helper T cells, on antibody-mediated immunity to HIV and influenza, and on plasma and memory B cell biology. The goal is to showcase the latest breakthroughs in B cell biology, antibody technologies, and the potential for B cell/antibody mediated vaccine development.
