Time to start taking time seriously: circadian rhythms in infection and immunity

INNSiDE Newcastle, Bridge Court, Close, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 3BE, UK
About the event
Professor Professor Sarah Reece, Dr Rachel Edgar and Professor Annie Curtis will lead a scientific meeting on the topic of circadian rhythms in infection and immunity. The timing of infections can have a serious impact on the outcome for hosts, but little is known about how timing impacts host-pathogen interactions. This meeting will include presentations by leaders in the fields of circadian biology, immunology, microbiology, parasitology, virology and evolutionary ecology to explore how and why rhythms in pathogen activities and host immune responses drive disease processes. Registration is free and this event is intended for researchers in relevant fields. Advance registration is essential. More information about the speakers, programme and how to register for this meeting can be found on the Royal Society website.
