Session Description: Virtually all pathology involves inflammation, and inflammation requires a functioning vascular system. The interactions of leukocytes with cells and components of the vasculature are critical for the natural progression and resolution of inflammation. This session will start with a symposium highlighting some new developments in our understanding of the mechanisms that promote migration of leukocytes into inflamed tissue, and the consequences of those interactions for the promotion and regression of inflammation. This will be followed by an extended discussion involving audience members as well as the speakers to put these findings into context with each other and with other developments in the field. We hope that this conversation will elicit critical questions for future research.
