NETosis: The 4th International Conference on Lung, Innate Immunity and Pulmonology

October 8 - 9, 2021 : 9-1PM EST

An Online Conference of Discussions and Presentations

The goal of this event is to lead a discussion on Neutrophil Extracellular Traps together from all over the globe

Welcome to the NETosis i-CLIIP 2021 Conference!

The i-CLIIP is a biannual event that brings together faculties, students and researchers with an intriguing agenda on Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs). NETs are strands of DNA released extracellularly to bind and trap pathogens. Some topics include: NET Formation mechanisms, roles of NETs in diseases and systems, and other forms of extracellular traps mediated by macrophages and other cells. We believe that all participants registered for this conference will benefit greatly from the series of poster and oral presentations we have in store! This conference will provide you with the opportunity to grow your professional skills, introducing you with cutting edge research in neutrophil extracellular traps.

The conference will start via Zoom at 9AM (EST) on Friday, October 8, 2021. See the overall program schedule in 'Schedule'.

This conference is dedicated to celebrate the contributions of:
Paul Kubes, PhD

The I-CLIIP 2021 commemorated Dr. Kubes’ achievements on Leukocyte research work. He is one of the pioneers of Leukocyte research, having received numerous rewards from CIHR Investigator of the Year to Henry Friesen Award. He had developed a novel imaging system allowing the observation of immune cells and the pathogens they are chasing in real time, allowing for abundant new research into innate immunity. His work has provided the groundwork for the development of new treatments and prevention of a wide array of ailments including, sepsis, cancer, and diabetes. Thus far, he has published 429 publication works and continues to conduct research on Leukocyte roles in disease and recovery at the University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
