Antibodies & Complement: Effector Functions, Therapies & Technologies

20th – 23rd June 2017

B12_antibody_5149315400-CustomWe are proud to announce the 1st Zing Antibodies & Complement: Effector Functions, Therapies & Technologies Conference will take place in June 2017 in Portugal.

The antibody response and the complement system are major effector arms of the immune system. Both have been involved in a plethora of pathological conditions – including autoimmunity, allergy, infections and cancer- and regulate, mainly through their receptors (FcR and CR respectively) cell activation, migration, survival but also metabolism. As the portfolio of antibody- and complement-effector function grow, high-end technological solutions are developed and novel therapeutic applications are proposed.

This Zing conference will focus attention on key advances in both fields with the aim at fostering discussions between antibody experts and complement experts. Some of the critical topics to be covered include

  • Antibody & complement functions
  • FcR and CR
  • Ab glycosylation and anti-inflammatory activity
  • Structure – function linkage
  • Novel technologies
  • Complement and antibody therapies

This Antibody & Complement meeting will be a forum for leaders in the field and new investigators coming from academia, industry and research institutes to discuss where the field is going and what challenges lie ahead.
