Antibody Biology and Engineering

Conference - Lucca, Barga, Italy

Antibodies are multi-faceted proteins, capable of an extraordinary array of important functions. Not only major players in protection against invading pathogens, they play critical roles in inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, their induction is central to many vaccine strategies, and they are an unrivalled platform for engineering highly effective diagnostic and therapeutic reagents. The 2014 Gordon Conference on Antibody Biology and Engineering will present in-depth coverage of recent advances in this exciting field, in an informal setting designed for maximal interaction. Bringing together academic researchers with their colleagues in the biopharma industry, it will provide an ideal opportunity for leading researchers from around the world to present and discuss cutting-edge data.

Fusing new developments in basic science with high-impact translational and clinical research, the meeting will provide a stimulating program featuring an international mix of established and upcoming researchers. A key emphasis will be on mechanisms of antibody action in health and disease and the application of this mechanistic understanding to the design of improved vaccines and monoclonal antibody therapeutics. Topics will include antibody structure and dynamics, immunoglobulin effector function, the breadth and duration of antibody repertoires, as well as the mechanisms underlying antibody involvement in major inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
