Theme and speakers
The line-up of speakers for the 2023 ICI conference will again cover the true diversity of chemical immunology. In addition, this year’s conference program will be in memoriam of Professor Dr. Huib Ovaa, our dear friend and colleague, who was involved in our ICI program from the very start, but sadly passed away in May 2020. For now we can announced we have confirmed two keynote speakers: Firstly, Hidde Ploegh from Boston Children’s Hospital who is well-known from his work on antigen processing, the use of ‘sortagging’ to study the evasion of the immune system by viruses and his more recent work on nanobodies. Secondly, professor of biochemistry and mass spectrometry Benedikt Kessler from the University of Oxford, whose work is focusing on the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in the immune system.
PhD student talks and poster session
Similar to last year, there will be two slots for PhD student talks. ICI PhD students (mandatory) and other interested students/postdocs can submit an abstract before April 1st. Early April, we will announce which abstracts are selected for a presentation, all others are invited (mandatory for ICI PhD students) to present a poster.
