ICI Conference 2024

This year we celebrate 10 years of ICI! And how better to celebrate than with another exciting ICI conference? Following the successful conferences of the last years, ICI will host the 2024 Chemical Immunology Conference on June 28th, at Naturalis biodiversity center in Leiden.

Chemical Immunology Conference 2023

Following the successful conference last year, ICI will host the 2023 Chemical Immunology Conference again at Naturalis Leiden, on Friday June 9th 2023.

Vacancy in Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry: molecular cell biologist

In the Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics group at Utrecht University we have an opening for a molecular cell biology expert in a supporting role. The research division is heavily invested in the development and application of new, highly sensitive and robust quantitative proteomics workflows to solve diverse biological and clinical questions.

Dana Vergoossen awarded for "Best article 2021"

In December, Dana Vergoossen received from the Prinses Beatrix Spierfonds the prestigious award for young Dutch neuromuscular researchers. She was awarded for her paper, published in PNAS (30 March 2021), describing pioneering work in the field of IgG4 antibodies. The prize consists of a cash prize of 1000.

Noel de Miranda will join the KNAW Young Academy

Noel de Miranda is Principal Investigator of the Cancer Immunogenomics group and Associate professor at the LUMC Department of Pathology. He seeks to understand how a patient’s immune system recognizes cancer cells, how cancer cells escape such recognition, and how our knowledge of this behavior can be used to develop effective immunotherapies. As a Young Academic member, his focus will be on promoting sustainable and stimulating academic environments for researchers that are simultaneously inclusive and accessible to society.

Awarded Veni grants December 2021

In December NWO has awarded 89 promising young scientists from the science domains ENW and ZonMw a Veni grant of up to 280,000 euros. This allows the laureates to further develop their own research ideas for a period of three years. Below, awarded research projects in the field of biological immunology are shown.

ICI Conference 18 March 2022

We are pleased to invite you to the next ICI conference to be held March 18 2022 at the Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden.

We are proud to announce the following confirmed speakers:

Unique binding to corona spike protein

After a corona infection, our bodies produce a variety of different antibodies to neutralize the corona virus. Within that broad variety, each antibody appears to bind in their own unique way to the SARS-CoV-2 spike. This was discovered by a research team led by Albert Heck at Utrecht University, together with colleagues at Amsterdam UMC and the Scripps Research Institute. The group published their results in ACS Central Science, which selected the paper as its cover article.

Jeantet-Collen Prize for translational medicine for Ton Schumacher

Immunologist Ton Schumacher from Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, who is also a professor at Leiden University and the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC), is to receive the Jeantet-Collen Prize for Translational Medicine 2021.

Registration for the 2021 Chemical Immunology Conference is now open!

This year’s online edition will take place Friday March 19, 2021 from 02.00 PM to 06.00 PM (CET).
