Focused Meeting 2018: Microbes and Mucosal Surfaces
More than 90% of all human and animal infections occur at mucosal surfaces. In addition, mucosa are colonised by commensal beneficial micro-organisms, meaning that the mucosal immune system must be able to differentiate between friend and foe.
This meeting aims to focus on how microbes interact with mucosal surfaces, cross-talk that occurs between the host and microbes, and strategies that we use to treat mucosal infections and maintain well-being. It aims to bring together microbiologists in Ireland, the UK and further afield working on both bacteria and viruses that live at mucosal surfaces to share their knowledge and expertise and promote collaboration.
