Antibodies & Complement: Effector Functions, Therapies & Technologies

20 June 2017 16:00 - 23 June 2017 12:30, Olhão, 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.
