Antibodies & Complement: Effector Functions, Therapies & Technologies
20th – 23rd June 2017
We 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.

The Conference Chairs
The Hotel Grande Real Santa Eulalia is located in Albufeira, in the heart of the Algarve, situated 19 miles from Faro Airport. Set directly on the renowned Santa Eulalia, this spectacular hotel was opened in 2004 and is a member of the prestigious “Great Hotels of the World”.
A view of the green gardens or the Atlantic ocean from anywhere in the hotel, provides a relaxing atmosphere flowing throughout the hotel.
The hotel oozes elegance and style with all of the amenities to make guests feel special whilst engaging in the scientific conferences. The restaurants in the resort offer the best in Algarve cuisine alongside the historical Paderne Castle located just 8 miles away and many beautiful trails and hikes on the doorstep.
