Immunotherapies for infectious diseases – I4ID

The emergence of new infectious diseases, the re-emergence of  “old” infectious diseases, the rise of antibacterial resistance to conventional antibacterial agents and the difficulty to come out with a new pipeline of new antimicrobial  compounds leads to consider the potential of non-conventional approaches, such as immunotherapies as new therapies.

BIOASTER and MabDesign have decided to associate their experiences and expertise to organize the first International Congress in France with two days fully dedicated to Immunotherapies for Infectious Diseases (I4ID) that will take place in December 11-12, 2017 in Lyon.

The purpose of these two-day congress is to foster interactions between pharmaceutical industries, research labs, service providers, technology developers, and policy makers and thus contribute to the development of immunotherapies against infectious diseases.

The Scientific Committee has set-up an exciting program for the I4ID2017 Congress that includes keynote lectures, pitch talks of new creative projects, and industrial talks from big pharmaceutical companies. Furthermore, it will be possible to set up, through an online platform, business meetings during both days (partnering).

The topics covered during this meeting are:

  • Immunotherapy against viral infections,
  • Immunotherapy as alternative treatment to antibiotics
  • Immunotherapy against emergent or re-emergent and bioterrorism agents
  • Next-Generation Immunotherapy against Infectious Diseases
  • Cross-talk to accelerate the development and bioproduction of affordable immunotherapy solutions

Some high profile speakers have already confirmed their presence:

  • Eszter Nagy – Arsanis
  • Tony De Fougerolles – Ablynx
  • Pascal Poignard – IBS Grenoble
  • Geneviève Inchauspé – Transgene
  • Hasan Jafri – MedImmune
  • Pierre-Olivier Vidalain – Paris Descartes University
  • Bertrand Lépine – Fab’Entech
