The 10th International CD1-MR1 Workshop will be held on 3-7 November 2017 in Napa, California, USA. D1 and MR1 are antigen presenting molecules that present lipid and metabolite-based antigens for αβ and γδ T-cell surveillance. This meeting will focus on the biology of CD1 and MR1, and the T-cells that respond to antigens presented by these molecules. Over the last few years, the field has progressed markedly, with the identification of new lymphocyte populations, new antigens, and a greater appreciation of the role that these components play in the immune system. The meeting will explore the basic mechanisms of T-cell activation by these unusual antigens, the development and function of the cells involved, and how such information can be ultimately harnessed for therapeutic benefit.
