Future Meetings

2019
DECODING COMPLEX SKIN DISEASE: INTEGRATING GENETICS, GENOMICS AND DISEASE BIOLOGY
Program Chairs: James T. Elder, MD, PhD, and Johann E. Gudjonsson, MD, PhD, University of Michigan
Salishan Resort, Gleneden Beach, OR
October 10 – 14, 2019

The 68th Annual Montagna Symposium on the Biology of Skin will explore connections from genotype through intermediate phenotypes to clinical expression of polygenic skin diseases, including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, vitiligo, lupus and others. Our goal is to bring together clinicians and researchers to foster a better understanding of the biological and mechanistic connections between genes, transcripts and proteins and the pathogenesis of these diseases.

Themes will include:
• Genetics based discovery.
• Genetics and epigenetics.
• Multi-Omics (transcriptome, proteome, metabolome, lipidome, microbiome).
• Immunological signaling.
• Systems biology/disease models.
• Translation to clinic.

 

2020
MICROBES, AUTOIMMUNITY AND CANCER
Program Chair: Robert L. Modlin, MD, University of California, Los Angeles
Salishan Resort, Gleneden Beach, OR
October 15 – 19, 2020
