Epithelial transport during infection and inflammation

Epithelia & Membrane Transport Epithelia & Membrane Transport

Organised by John Hanrahan, McGill University, Montreal, Canada
and Deborah Baines, St George's University of London, UK

Thusday 14 July 2011
LT4 (Pharmacology lecture theatre)

Epithelial barriers between the body and the environment provide the first line of defence against pathogens and other harmful agents. Inflammation is an important feature of epithelial responses to external insults. Transepithelial solute and fluid transport processes are also integral parts of the epithelial response to infection and inflammation, and contribute to the innate immunity. This symposium will present recent studies of epithelial biology that are related to infection and inflammation, and which may function abnormally in disease states.
