    Join us in Williamsburg, Virginia for our 33rd Annual Meeting!

    Enjoy a relaxing hotel escape in the heart of the Historic Area at the Williamsburg Lodge. Just steps from the action, the inviting lodge boasts a world-class restaurant and convenient access to spa and golf recreation amenities. Staying on property guarantees after-hours networking opportunities and includes admission to the Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area for the duration of your stay.

    Colonial Williamsburg is the largest outdoor living museum in the country, upholding its educational mission through immersive, authentic 18th-century experiences and programming for its guests.  The 301-acre Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area features iconic sites, working tradespeople, historic taverns, and two world-class art museums.  

    Williamsburg is an easy drive from most major Northeast and Mid-Atlantic cities. It is accessible by air with over 200 daily flights and over 25 cities with direct, non-stop service to Norfolk, Richmond, and Newport News/Williamsburg airports.  Amtrak also runs regular train service to the Williamsburg area from several major northeastern cities.

    We hope to see you there! Mark your calendars for

    Our 32nd Annual Meeting was an incredible success, with 167 attendees present onsite at Snowbird Resort. We enjoyed reconnecting at the Welcome Reception, listening to 4 days of scientific talks, enjoying al fresco poster sessions with lunch, and a special group dinner at The Summit atop Hidden Peak (elev. 11,000ft.).

    This Pathogens Special Issue “Innate Immune Responses to Tick-Borne Infections” aims to showcase the current research landscape in tick-borne infection and disease, and associated host innate immune responses. We invite the submission of original research articles, case studies, short reports, and reviews that highlight the genetic diversity of tick-borne organisms, transmission biology, pathogen evasion strategies, pathogenesis of induced disease, and host innate immune mechanisms towards development of innovative diagnostic, preventive, and therapeutic measures.

    Adaptive Biotechnologies, an immune profiling company based in Seattle, has been working through partnerships with research groups worldwide to better understand T cell responses to Lyme and other Tick-Borne illnesses and how these immune signatures might inform the development of a T cell-based diagnostic. As an example of how we have done this in other diseases please see our recent work in COVID-19 published by Snyder et al 2020Our focus right now is identifying investigators who have banked patient samples or the ability to collect samples during the coming season. Since our assay studies the cellular response in diseases like Lyme we would run T-cell Receptor (TCR) sequencing on whole blood (2 mLs), buffy coat (~3 million cells), or DNA (18 ug) from either.
