Dear Colleague,

GTC is delighted to present the 2nd Allergy & Respiratory Drug Discovery Conference, to be held on January 31 - February 1, 2013. The conference will bring together industry, academia and government experts in the field of allergy, asthma and COPD. Experts will facilitate discourse on the challenges and opportunities for therapeutic and drug development for allergic diseases for the current and future generations. Topics will range from basic scientific research to biomarkers and clinical development. Novel immune targets, new therapeutic interventions, genetics, epigenetics and biomarkers in allergic diseases will be presented. Below is a list of sessions and topics that are planned for the conference:

Novel Immune Targets in Allergy

- IL-33 as a potential target

- IgE Antibodies to Galactose-alpha-1, 3-galactose (alpha-gal)
