  • Nanobodies (Hybrid 2nd edition)

    8 - 10 September 2021

    Brussels, Belgium

    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. 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!

  • New Horizons in Alzheimer's Disease (Hybrid edition)

    27 - 28 October 2021

    Leuven, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    New Horizons in Alzheimer's Disease (Hybrid edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/new-horizons-in-alzheimer-s-disease-hybrid-edition Alzheimer’s Disease research is accelerating with exciting new insights into molecular and cellular mechanisms. This upcoming conference brings together some of the thought leaders in the field with young investigators to stimulate discussion and interaction. We anticipate further insights into the triangle amyloid, Tau and neuroinflammation and how these might provide novel therapeutic approaches. The following topics will be the focus of this conference: - Genes and environment - Synapse and circuitry - Mechanisms and models of disease - Seeds and spreading of disease Next to an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities (both live and virtual) during the breaks, poster sessions and the conference dinner. **Information for poster submissions** The format for your poster should be: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation. The best fourteen abstracts will be given a short talk slot in the plenary program. No registration is needed before submitting a abstract. The deadline for abstracts is 27 August 2021. All accepted poster submissions will have a chance to win one of the two SAO Poster Prizes. **SAO sponsored Travel grants and registration waive** SAO will sponsor 10 poster presenters (PhD or postdoc) for a travel grant plus registration fee waive. Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 30 July 2021. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance by the end of August. **Speaker line-up** *Session 1: Genes and environment* - Lucía Chávez Gutiérrez VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research, BE - Christopher Glass University of California, San Diego, US - Steven A.
