Thank you for applying to participate in our NSF-funded workshop on selection, to be held in conjunction with the 2015 Woods Hole Immunoparasitology (WHIP) Conference, 19-22 April in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA. We have received outstanding applications and have made our selection for this year’s workshop.
The 2015 workshop will be addressing the principle question: What are the functional forms for immunological killing of parasites, and in how much detail must we measure immunity to understand immune selection? We will explicitly compare immune selection pressures and immunity-transmission relationships across an array of protozoan and helminth taxa. We will benefit from being embedded in the great, long-standing WHIP meeting that combines top-notch science with many opportunities for informal discussions, and of course many sea views!
