Innate immunity: more than a guard against invading pathogens

Innate immunity: more than a guard against invading pathogens

The Butantan Institute will receive, on 08/28/18, the visit of a major American researcher. The researcher, Dr. John Lambris, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (USA), will give a lecture at 11am in the Auditorium of the Center for Scientific Dissemination (CDC - Butantan Institute).

Speaker:
Dr. John Lambris - Professor of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA.

Using Complement as a model system, Dr. Lambris applies ideas and methods from engineering, computer science, physics, chemistry, biomedicine and other fields to study the structure and functions of the complement system.

Dr. Lambris has published over 450 articles in peer-reviewed journals (H> 100 index, citations> 37,000) and is the editor of several books and specialized periodicals. Dr. Lambris is the founder and CEO of Aegean Conferences, an independent, non-profit educational organization.

He is the inventor of patents and / or patent applications describing the use of complement inhibitors for therapeutic purposes; founder of Amyndas Pharmaceuticals, which is developing complement inhibitors for clinical applications, and inventor of the compstatin technology licensed to Apellis Pharmaceuticals.

His 1988 publication on the generation of the first monoclonal antibody to C5 led to the development of anti-C5 therapeutic antibodies, such as eculizumab (Soliris).

He also serves as a member of the Editorial Board of several peer-reviewed journals and was the president of the International Complement Society.

Dr. Lambris received more than $ 50 million in research funding from various institutions and agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the American Cancer Society, the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the National Research Foundation of Greece.

On behalf of the Centre of Excellence in New Target Discovery and SPARK-Brazil Program it is a great pleasure to announce the 2nd International Symposium on Drug Discovery in Academia (ISDDA 2018).

The primary goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for timely discussion of the latest findings from leaders in the field of drug discovery and development. As a result, we hope the symposium will foster new ideas and collaborations to accelerate translation. Attendees will hear state-of- art presentations on a broad array of topics, including target identification, high-throughput screen, translating basic research into clinics, academia- industry partnerships and project management. Invited speakers represent world reference institutions in Drug Discovery and Development, including Stanford University and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), as we further broaden our international scope and partnerships.

The planned agenda includes 2 fast-paced sessions during 1 day, set in a forum that promotes the relaxed exchange and discussion of cutting edge research in drug discovery and development.

I hope you will find the symposium an educational experience and a great opportunity to network with scientists from around the world who are dedicated to building healthier lives.

Lecture: Systems Biology for non-bioinformatics

Lecture: Systems Biology for non-bioinformatics

System Biology has been used to unravel the molecular mechanisms behind various diseases and vaccines. However, to dive into the sea of data generated by Systems Biology, researchers must use complex methods and analyzes that are barely accessible (or understandable) to non-bioinformatics. The keynote will show the efforts of the Computational Systems Biology Laboratory to develop user-friendly tools that allow anyone, especially non-bioinformatics, to navigate this sea of data and thus catch good ideas.


Speaker:
Helder Nakaya - Biologist from the University of São Paulo and PhD in Biochemistry from the Department of Biochemistry at IQ USP. The doctorate was directed to the area of Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics. From 2008 to 2011, as a postdoctoral at Emory University, Atlanta (USA) investigated the mechanism of vaccination in cells of the immune system using large-scale techniques. He became an assistant professor in the Department of Pathology at Emory University in 2011, where he uses systems biology to predict and understand the immune response to different vaccines. He is currently a lecturer at the Department of Clinical and Toxicological Analysis at the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at USP and an associate professor at Emory University. He is an affiliated member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences (Laboratory of Computational Systems Biology).
