We are pleased to announce the 1st Zing Mast Cells Conference, which will be held at the International Hotel Casino & Towers Suites, Varna, Bulgaria.

The main goal of our International Conference is to create a space for the presentation, diffusion and discussion of advances on the development, function and signal transduction pathways of mast cells, on their physiological and pathological roles (allergy, inflammation, asthma, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, among others), on methodological approaches for the investigation of mast cell biology and on the potential of these cells as targets for new therapy strategies. All aspects of mast cell research field will be covered in this meeting, with emphasis on translational research and clinical applications.

The target audience for this program is basic, translational and clinical investigators from academic institutions and industry, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, clinicians and allied health professionals involved in mast cells research.

World-wide experts in the field of mast cells will share their knowledge through plenary and invited lectures. A significant portion of the program will include oral presentations selected from the submitted abstracts as well as a poster session to allow full interaction between the participants.

We believe this Conference will be a scientifically and socially rewarding, memorable and enjoyable experience.
