The Pirbright Institute, Surrey
The conference hopes to advance knowledge and understanding of B cell biology and stimulate new cross collaborations.
Understanding of antibody responses has progressed greatly in recent years. Advances include the identification of broadly cross-reactive antibodies, structural analysis of antibodies and antibody-epitope interactions, stabilisation of antigens to maintain epitope structure and understanding the importance of protective antibody responses for a number of complex pathogens.
A varied programme is planned with 6 sessions as follows:-
Session 1: Structure guided immunogen design.
Session 2: Antibodies of animal and human.
Session 3: B cell help and regulation.
Session 4: Translating antibodies - therapeutics and adjuvants
Session 5: Identification of antigen targets and epitopes.
Session 6: B cell biology in health and disease.
This event will bring together speakers with expertise in the different disciplines that are being applied to advance this important field.
