Two years into the most significant infectious disease event of our generation, infections have populated every conversation and in-depth understanding of host-pathogen interactions has, perhaps, never been more important. In a successful return to in-person conferences, the host-pathogen interface was the focus of the third Cell Dynamics meeting, which took place at the glorious Wotton House in Surrey, UK. The meeting organised by Michaela Gack, Maximiliano Gutierrez, Dominique Soldati-Favre and Michael Way gathered an international group of scientists who shared their recent discoveries and views on numerous aspects, including cell-autonomous defence mechanisms, pathogen interactions with host cytoskeletal or membrane dynamics, and cellular immune regulation. More than 30 years into the beginning of cellular microbiology as a field, the meeting exhibited the unique aspect of the host-pathogen interface in uncovering the fundamentals of both pathogens and their hosts.
