Microbial infections lead to drastic changes in the architecture and metabolism of the host cell. The inaugural FEBS/EMBO Lecture Course on Cell Biology of Host-Pathogen Interactions explores the mechanisms underlying these changes, and the functions they serve during infection from both the host and pathogen perspective. Themes highlighted include: metabolic control of and manipulation by pathogens, organelle-microbe conflict, the regulation of intracellular compartments, formation of distinct pathogen vacuoles, avoidance of cell-autonomous innate immunity, and emerging technologies that can be applied to the host-pathogen interaction.
