The aim of the Conferences Louis Pasteur is to present recent advances in the field of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. The 6th Conference will explore the dynamic cross-talk between the microbe and its host, with a particular emphasis on how the microbe interferes with effectors of the innate and adaptive immune system. The first two sessions will review recent insights into how the microbe both shapes and uses developmental patterns of its host. Such insights have emerged from studies of symbiotic microbe-host interactions and of microbe-triggered pathogenic processes in genetically tractable hosts. The conference will also present our current understanding of the multiple ways in which the microbe cross talks with the innate and adaptive immune system of the host, and may induce immune tolerance or disrupt the immune system regulatory pathways.
