Microbial Pathogenesis & Host Response
September 21 - 24/25, 2021
Abstract Deadline: July 2, 2021

We are pleased to host the thirteenth Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Microbial Pathogenesis and Host Response, which will focus on interdisciplinary approaches to study infectious diseases integrating the disciplines of molecular microbiology, eukaryotic cell biology, immunology, and genomics. The meeting will provide an in depth focus on the approaches that are being used to elucidate the mechanisms of bacterial and fungal pathogenesis, and promote the application of these concepts to understanding the evolution of emerging diseases.
Sessions will integrate studies on bacterial and fungal pathogens. The oral sessions will begin with 3-4 invited talks by established leaders in the field, followed by several shorter talks chosen from submitted abstracts. We strongly encourage submission of abstracts by junior researchers in the field.
Because of uncertainties around COVID19 and the possible development of effective vaccines, we are being flexible and considering two options:
1) In-person meeting beginning Tuesday evening, September 21 and ending with lunch on Saturday, September 25, 2021.
(We appreciate that due to vaccine availability and travel restrictions/concerns some participants may need to attend the in-person meeting virtually)
2) Virtual meeting, beginning Tuesday morning, September 21, and ending Friday afternoon, September 24, 2021.
The decision about meeting format will be made no later than May 28, 2021.

Please bring this notice to the attention of any of your colleagues who may be interested in participating in the meeting.
All abstracts must be submitted by the abstract deadline. Late registrations may be accepted after the abstract deadline if the meeting is not oversubscribed. In the event of over-subscription, every effort will be made to ensure that all groups who wish to participate will be represented. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.
We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Please apply in writing via email to Val Pakaluk and state your financial needs; preference will be given to those who submit abstracts.
The designated hashtag for this meeting is #cshlhost. Note that you must obtain permission from an individual presenter before live-tweeting or discussing his/her talk, poster, or research results on social media. Click the Policies tab above to see our full Confidentiality & Reporting Policy.
