Overview

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together a small working group of researchers to explore the correlation between immune responses and pathology of mycobacterial infections of animals and humans and to better understand the utility and limitations of various animal models of TB and other mycobacterial diseases.

We are inviting researchers with experience with a wide-range of natural mycobacterial infections and animal models, including:

  • Mice
  • Guinea pigs
  • Rabbits
  • Non-human primates
  • Medakka (M. marinum)
  • Armadillos (M. leprae)
  • Cattle (M. bovis and M. avium spp. paratuberculosis)
  • Deer (M. bovis)
  • Cats/lions (M. bovis)
  • Asian elephants (M. bovis)
  • Badgers
  • Possums
  • Equine (Rhodoccocus)

Research in these species will be connected in the following five focused panel sessions to improve the understanding of mycobacterial immunopathology in both animal and human disease:

  • Neonatal Immunology
  • Granuloma Pathology
  • Granuloma Immunology
  • Immune Relevance
  • Case Reports
