ViBrANT2021 offers an online platform to dive into the world of pathogen adhesion, to boost science, and to create new collaborations. Moreover, invited experts will guide us through various topics regarding their specific research field as keynote speakers.
Viral and bacterial infections pose a growing threat to not only our health, but also to our current way of living as proven by both the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the ever slumbering increase in bacterial antibiotic resistance. Adhesion is a key step in all infection processes and can be used in the development of drugs and vaccines, diagnostic devices, or detection tools. The conference will thus include the main topics of ViBrANT: microbiology, structural biology, virology, diagnostics, and bioinformatics.
Dr. Magali Jaillard – Opening the black box of k-mer-based machine learning algorithms for the prediction of microbial phenotypes
Dr. Wing Ying Chow – Collagen dynamics and perspectives of adhesin interactions by solid-state NMR
Prof. Dr. Andrei N. Lupas – Structural principles of fiber formation in trimeric autotransporters
Professor Arben Merkoçi – Nanobiosensors for diagnostics
Prof. Dr. Joachim Jose – Advanced autotransporters: from single peptide display to cell surface factories
Professor Martin Andersson – Surface design to avoid biomaterial associated infection
Want to participate?
Are you a scientist or a curious student who wants to learn more about the world of adhesins? Do you want to collaborate, contribute and participate in the discussions or poster session? Do you want to experience the latest developments in adhesion research from the first row?
Register now, it’s free! The deadline for registration is 01 July 2021 (12:00 CET).
We hope you join us for this exciting online (Zoom) come together.
The size of the conference will be limited to 100 participants.
Posters will be available to view for all conference participants. A live poster session on each day will give you the opportunity to either present or discuss posters with their respective authors in separate virtual rooms.
Deadline for poster submission is 02 July 2021 (12:00 CET)!
Some poster design guidelines:
- A0 – Landscape
- Single page
- >300 ppi resolution
- No multimedia content
- Title at the top of your poster in capital letters (>80 point font size)
- Below the title, place the authors’ names and affiliations (>36 point font size)
- Use sans-serif typeface (i.e. Arial, Helvetica, Calibri).
- Self-explanatory (as much as possible)
- Minimize text – maximize use of images, figures, and tables
