Announcing:

GBF-Symposium on

Antibody Technology and Applications in Health and Environment

http://transfac.gbf-braunschweig.de/Symposien/Welcom2.html

The meeting will be held in
Braunschweig, Germany from September 6th-10th, 1996

For further information please contact: antibody-symposium at gbf-braunschweig.de

Goals and Scope

The goals of the Symposium are to present latest advances in the field of antibody
technology with regard to emerging innovative approaches and applications in
health and environment. During the first part of the symposium research progress will be
presented in the fields of natural immune repertoires, antibody structure and
function and recombinant antibody technology including human and humanized antibodies,
phage display techniques, combinatorial libraries and bispecific or
catalytic antibodies. In the second part, potentials and problems of antibody expression in
cell cultures, transgenic animals and plants will be discussed with regard
to the antibody application sessions in the third part of the Symposium. The final sessions
will analyze the use of antibody for prophylaxis and therapy and in a
variety of other fields with emphasis on the environment. Interactions will be encouraged
during round-table sessions where potential uses, common difficulties and
limitations of antibody technology will be discussed. Additional time for discussions will
be available during poster sessions, social activities and informal periods of
time in the Hotel Mercure where most of the participants will be accommodated. Younger
scientiests will have the opportunity to submit abstracts for short oral
presentations of selected posters in the main sessions.
