Antibodies & Complement: Effector Functions, Therapies & Technologies
Event Jun 20 - Jun 23, 2017
Location: Albufeira, 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.
