International Meeting on Optical Biosensors
15 - 17 November 2018
Ghent, BelgiumInternational Meeting on Optical Biosensors https://vibconferences.be/event/international-meeting-on-optical-biosensors https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/international-meeting-on-optical-biosensors Biological processes show extreme complexity orchestrated both in space and time. To face this complexity, it has been necessary, as pointed out by R.Y. Tsien in his lecture "Unlocking Cell Secrets with Light Beams and Molecular Spies" (Heineken Prize for Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2002), to develop fluorescent spies in order to analyze, quantify in real time and decrypt very sophisticated cellular mechanisms. The recent explosion of fluorescent biosensors development opens a new field of investigation by allowing the analysis of extremely specific biological events at the level of cellular organelles, individual cells, tissues and even entire living organisms in physiological and pathological conditions. The development and the use of these tools require solving a number of conceptual, experimental and technological problems concerning both the biosensors themselves and the tools to follow them. Equally important, a range of new developments including optogenetic and optochemical tools allow systematic perturbation of biochemical processes while they are read out by optical biosensors. The purpose of this conference is to gather and consolidate the expertise in the field of biosensors and to promote the reflection and the exchange of information so as to accelerate the development of these new dynamic imaging approaches in all areas of biology and biomedical sciences. • Early Bird: 2 October 2018 • Late Registration: 31 October 2018 • Abstract deadline: 30 June 2018 2018-11-15 09:00:00 UTC 2018-11-17 17:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research, 'Fiers-Schell-Van Montagu' building, Ghent, Belgium VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research, 'Fiers-Schell-Van Montagu' building Ghent Belgium 9052 Imaging  Practical questions: VIB conferences team +32 9 244 66 11 email@example.com   meetings_and_conferencesreceptions_and_networking  biosensorsoptical biosensorsImaging
Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease
21 - 22 February 2019
Brugge, BelgiumType 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease https://vibconferences.be/event/type-2-immunity-in-homeostasis-and-disease https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/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.
