OxCI 2016 : The Oxford Chemical Immunology Conference
Call For Papers
Join us at the first conference connecting molecular immunology and chemical biology
4-5th April 2016, Oxford
The Oxford Chemical Immunology Conference will bring together leading experts, highlighting work at the interface of immunology and the chemical sciences.
The focus of the conference will be on framing immunological questions as molecular problems uniquely tractable to collaboration across the two disciplines. The development of chemical approaches for the exploration and manipulation of immunity will be highlighted. Themes will include (but are not limited to) the influence of post-translational modification in immune processes, emerging examples of cross-talk between immune pathways, chemical control of immune processes, auto-immunity and rational approaches towards vaccine design.
We believe that ‘cross-talk’ between chemists and immunologists has the potential to revolutionise the molecular understanding of the immune system. Our conference plan includes numerous networking opportunities, including a gala dinner in the main hall at Keble College. We aim to encourage the next generation of scientists by maintaining a focus on early-stage researchers, post-doctoral fellows and students during the entirety of the conference. Space has been allocated for early-career lectures on both days of the conference and extended poster sessions will take place, over wine, on the Monday evening.
