We are happy to confirm the new date: 8-9 December 2020. The aim of this conference is to bridge the translational gap in immunopathology, bringing together clinicians, research scientists and industry partners to discuss prominent advances from the bench to the clinic. The different sessions will have a particular focus on precision medicine in general, starting from disease-oriented cases and lessons learned. Innovative and alternative therapeutic strategies in immune-mediated disorders will be presented, besides the regulatory challenges that companies and researchers are dealing with.

Plant Science for Climate Emergency
7 - 8 June 2021
Gent, BelgiumPlant Science for Climate Emergency https://www.vibconferences.be/events/plant-science-for-climate-emergency?utm_source=Google&utm_medium=Conference%20website%20post&utm_campaign=Event%20posting&utm_content=Elixir https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/plant-science-for-climate-emergency Climate change is one of the most serious threats humanity has ever faced. Developing crops that are more resilient to rapidly changing and harsher environments will be crucial for tomorrow’s food production. Green biotechnology offers solutions to maintain high food productivity while preserving the earth’s valuable ecosystems. In addition, plants may also play an important role in mitigating the rising levels of greenhouse gases. This VIB conference ‘Plant Science for Climate Emergency’ aims at reviewing current research on adapting plants to climate change as well as on using plants for mitigating the accumulation of greenhouse gasses. Twenty leaders in plant biotechnology will present the latest developments in sessions focused on drought tolerance, tolerance to high temperatures, salt and flooding tolerance, the effects of climate change on defense systems against insects and pathogens, carbon capturing plants, crop engineering and improvement, nitrogen use efficiency, and much more. Besides an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities during the poster sessions, the reception, and the conference dinner.

Nanobodies (Hybrid 2nd edition)
8 - 10 September 2021
Brussels, BelgiumNanobodies (Hybrid 2nd edition) https://www.vibconferences.be/events/nanobodies-hybrid-2nd-edition https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/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: https://www.vibconferences.be/events/nanobodies-hybrid-2nd-edition 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.
