22 – 26 September 2019 Congressi Stefano Franscini Monte Verità, Switzerland


The recognition of pathogen-associated nucleic acids allows the immune system to detect the presence of infectious microbes. However, erroneous immune sensing of self-nucleic acids is associated with the pathogenesis of sterile inflammatory diseases. At this conference, we will discuss research on the molecular mechanisms and the functional consequences of innate nucleic acid recognition. This insight will help to develop innovative treatments for infection, inflammatory diseases and cancer.
