Lymphoid Cell Receptors and Antigen Recognition

  • G. L. Ada
  • R. V. Blanden


The subject of this session is at the very heart of immunology — what the lymphocyte recognizes, what is the nature of the cell receptors whereby recognition occurs and what might happen to the lymphocyte after the recognition event. In one sense, we are fortunate that these are topics which include controversial opinions and data and at this meeting and among the speakers we have protagonists for different view points. So we are likely to have a lively and enjoyable session. I doubt whether we will settle many of the more controversial issues but we may well have some clarification.
