SERPINx will be presenting at the upcoming KININ2018CLE conference, June 17th to June 20th in Cleveland, Ohio. Kinin 2018 CLE is organized by Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine (CWRU) and will be held during Jun 17 – 20, 2018 at Tinkham Veale University Center, Cleveland, Ohio, United States of America.

The KININ meeting occurs every three years, assembling scientists and clinicians involved in the field of bradykinin (kinins) and its related proteins (enzymes, cofactors, substrates, receptors, proteolytic systems, disease states, and developing therapies) for presentation of the latest ideas, research, drug development and therapeutics in these biologic systems. The 2018 event will focus on contact, kallikrein/kinin, and complement proteins in hereditary angioedema and thrombosis and their developing therapies, kinin receptors in disease, kinin receptor interaction with receptors of the renin-angiotensin system, the influence of the renin angiotensin system with bradykinin and its receptors’ biology, and the influence of this overall system in vascular biology, diabetes, hypertension, heart failure and other related disease states.

Gordon Research Conference

The KININ meeting is organized like a Gordon Research Conference whereby for each topic, 3-4 individuals will be invited for presentations. Each session, however, will also leave open time for oral presentations from the best abstracts submitted. Junior investigators in the fields are encouraged to submit their work for presentation. Travel awards are available for predoctoral and postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty whose work is chosen for oral presentation and poster awards. There will be six scientific sessions, two per day. A poster viewing session will be organized daily. In addition, several social events will be organized for participants to gather together and enjoy some of the highlights of Cleveland, Ohio.

Conference Objectives are :
• To bring together the world’s best investigators in the field of kinins for sharing research and generation of new ideas for future investigation
• To emphasize those areas where kinin science is now being translated into clinical use; and
• To inspire the next generation of investigators in this field to achieve that which their teachers and mentors were unable to accomplish.
