Nanobodies are single domain antibodies derived from llama heavy-chain only antibodies (HCAbs) are very useful in the treatment of serious diseases.

The discovery of nanobodies by Raymond Hamers in the 1980s and the further development of the technology by Serge Muyldermans and Jan Steyaert fundamentally changed approaches in different areas of medicine. Nanobodies are very useful in the diagnosis and treatment of serious and life-threatening diseases. As nanobodies were born at the University of Brussels, the VIB-VUB Center for Structural Biology is very honored to organize the second edition of the Nanobody conference.

This meeting series was launched in September 2019 at the University of Bonn by Florian Schmidt and Paul-Albert König. leaders in the field will present their latest findings in sessions focused on:

• Nanobody fundamentals
• Nanobody engineering
• Innovative research tools
• Nanobodies in diagnostics, imaging and microscopy
• Nanobodies in target validation
• Nanobodies as therapeutic molecules
• Nanobodies as anti-infectious agents
