Abstract

Natural killer (NK) cells are important members of the innate immune system being involved in the detection and clearance of transformed or virus-infected cells. The 10th meeting of the Society for Natural Immunity was recently held in Cambridge, UK, where leaders from around the globe gathered to discuss the latest developments and understandings in the field of NK cell biology. Among the topics covered in this meeting were NK cell development, the origin of thymic NK cells, contribution of NK cells to viral infections and subsequent tissue damage, crosstalk between NK cells and other immune cells and the role of NK cells at the foetal-maternal interface.
