Nanobodies (Hybrid 2nd edition)
7-8 September 2021, Virtual & Brussels, Belgium
Trends in Structural Biology satellite meeting on 10 september
The discovery of nanobodies by Raymond Hamers in the 1980s and the further development of the technology by Serge Muyldermans and Jan Steyaert fundamentally changed approaches in different areas of medicine. Nanobodies are very useful in the diagnosis and treatment of serious and life-threatening diseases.
As nanobodies were born at the University of Brussels, the VIB-VUB Center for Structural Biology is very honored to organize the hybrid second edition of the Nanobody conference. This meeting series was launched in September 2019 at the University of Bonn by Florian Schmidt and Paul-Albert König.
During the 2day conference on 8-9 September 2021, leaders in the field will present their latest findings in sessions focused on:
• Nanobody engineering
• Innovative research tools
• Nanobodies in diagnostics, imaging and microscopy
• Nanobodies as therapeutic molecules
• Nanobodies as anti-infectious agents
On Friday 10 September, a satellite event ‘Trends in structural biology’ will be held.
• Abstract deadline 7 juli 2021
• Early Bird deadline 28 July 2021
• Late Registration deadline: 25 August 2021

What to expect from this hybrid event
The scientific program (presentations, Q&A’s, and poster sessions) will be available for both live and virtual audiences. The virtual platform also offers several ways of interacting with each other through (video) chat. On top of this there will be live poster presentations for those attending the event in Brussels.
Information for poster presenters
The format for your (live) poster should be: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation.
The format for your (virtual) poster should be: 4 slides in 16:9 format + a recorded video of your talk.
The best abstracts will have a short talk slot in the plenary program. The 2 best posters will win the Poster prize!
