  • Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease

    21 - 22 February 2019

    Brugge, Belgium

    Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease Type 2 inflammation rich in eosinophils, basophils and mast cells and orchestrated by Th2 lymphocytes has been mainly studied in the context of allergies and immune responses to helminths. Since the discovery of type 2 innate lymphoid cells there has been a strong interest in understanding how type 2 immunity is induced and regulated, for example by barrier epithelial cells. Given the recent introduction of new biologics that target type 2 cytokines to treat severe allergic disease, we are accumulating a lot of new insights on type 2 immune responses in humans as well. This meeting will not only focus on new effector and regulatory mechanisms of the type 2 immune response. It will also offer a number of talks taking a broader look on type 2 immunity, dealing with such topics as type 2 immunity in homeostasis, growth and repair, metabolism, neuro-immune interactions and cancer. Understanding these alternative roles for type 2 immunity will be important to address the benefits and potential pitfalls of long-term inhibition of type 2 immunity by biologicals and could elucidate new therapeutic pathways for very common diseases like asthma, obesity, diabetes and cancer. Abstracts can be submitted for the following topics: Tissue homeostasis and repair Type 2 Neuro-immune axis Type 2 in allergy, asthma & helminth infection Type 2 Immunity & Cancer Deadlines: • Early Bird: 10 January 2019 • Late Registration: 7 February 2019 • Abstract deadline: 19 December 2018 2019-02-21 08:00:00 UTC 2019-02-22 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences OLD ST.

  • Nanobodies (Hybrid 2nd edition)

    8 - 10 September 2021

    Brussels, Belgium

    Nanobodies (Hybrid 2nd edition) 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. DEADLINES: • Abstract deadline 7 juli 2021 • Early Bird deadline 28 July 2021 • Late Registration deadline: 25 August 2021 Event URL: 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!
