B Cells and Mucosal Immune Responses in Health and Disease
Tuesday, March 4, 2014: 10:45 AM-12:00 PM
Convention Center, Mezzanine Level, Room 15AB
1.25 CME/ 1.50 CE
Moderator:
Atsushi Kato , PhD
Learning Objectives:
  1. Outline how the mucosal immune system balances responses to commensal and pathogenic microbes
  2. Describe the unique role of B cells and their antibodies in maintaining tolerance and homeostasis at mucosal sites
  3. Identify how mucosal B cell responses may be dysregulated in allergic disease as a strategy for the development of more targeted therapeutic interventions
