This conference will open with a discussion of one of the most active and exciting areas in dendritic cell [DC] biology, their development from different populations of progenitors. The formation of potent, immunostimulatory DCs is an obvious control point for the onset of T-cell dependent immunity. In addition, the success in generating large numbers of DCs underlies two other topics that will recur throughout the congress: the use of DCs for active immunotherapy of human disease, and the dissection of DC function using cell biological and molecular methods.
