Acknowledgments

Each report benefited from the contribution of the speakers and participants in the respective workshops. The agenda, speakers, and participant list for each workshop are provided as an appendix to each report.

The immunomodulation committee would also like to acknowledge David Schneider, Stanford University, for preparing the figure highlighting the complexity of the immune system, and Fiona Roche, Simon Fraser University, for preparing the Cytoscape figure of the TLR4 pathway.

These reports have been reviewed in draft form by persons chosen for their diverse perspectives and technical expertise in accordance with procedures approved by the National Research Council's Report Review Committee. The purpose of this independent review is to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the institution in making the published reports as sound as possible and to ensure that the reports meet institutional standards of objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the study charge. The review comments and draft manuscript remain confidential to protect the integrity of the deliberative process. We wish to thank the following individuals for their review of these reports:

Christine A. Biron, Brown University

Richard A. Flavell, Yale University

Emil C. Gotschlich, The Rockefeller University

Lora Hooper, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas

Harry F. Noller, University of California, Santa Cruz

John H. Rex, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals

Jerome S. Schultz, University of California, Riverside

Although the reviewers listed above have provided constructive comments and suggestions, they were not asked to endorse the conclusions or recommendations, nor did they see the final drafts of the reports before their release. The review of these reports was overseen by Elaine L. Larson, Columbia University, and Leslie Z. Benet, University of California, San Francisco. Appointed by the National Research Council, they were responsible for making certain that an independent examination of these reports was carried out in accordance with institutional procedures and that all review comments were carefully considered. Responsibility for the final content of these reports rests entirely with the authoring committees and the institution.
