              MICROBIAL PATHOGENESIS AND IMMUNE RESPONSE
                                   
             Sponsored by the NEW YORK ACADEMY OF SCIENCES
                                   
                        September 8 to 11, 1993
                                   
    Grosvenor Resort at Walt Disney World Village, Orlando, Florida
                                    
  
  >>> The objective of this meeting is to bring together an international
  group of basic and clinical researchers, from government, academia and
  industry, who, individually, are interested in the molecular mechanisms of
  microbial pathogenesis and in human immune response.  The focus will be
  on the ability to use the information exchanged at the meeting to formulate
  clearer approaches to immune regulation of and vaccine development for
  various human pathogens.  As these two groups of investigators, i.e., those
  interested in molecular pathogenesis and those interested in human response
  to microbial challenge, exchange ideas, many for the first time, it is hoped
  that new ideas and approaches will emerge.
