Taking you through the challenges of developing effective therapeutics step by step and committed to addressing the issues that are critical to you - you'll learn everything you need to know to transform your own research and development.
Designed by experts in the field such as Genentech, MedImmune, Abbott, Johnson & Johnson, Biogen Idec, Merck Serono, UCB and Pfizer - discover how to overcome the practical and scientific challenges of pushing antibodies towards the clinic and market.
What's on the agenda?
Here are just some of topics covered on the agenda:
Engineering antibodies with enhanced characteristics. Isotype choice, half life, stability, efficacy, immunogenicity, using structural insights and more...
Utilizing structural-based drug design. How to enhance structural understanding, epitope mapping and using crystallization studies to improve subsequent development
Reduction of manufacturing risk and improving expression early in the development process
How to ensure appropriate species cross-reactivity
Generation of multivalent antibodies and use combinatorial strategies
Discovery of suitable antibody candidates and identification new targets via novel strategies
Taking you through the challenges of developing therapeutic antibodies from discovery to clinic, shorn of tired case studies and company overviews, the focus is on delivering practical value to your antibody drug development activities.
Covering challenges and opportunities identified by you, you'll leave this meeting with a raft of new ideas and contacts to take back to your organization.
Hear speakers talk about overcoming problems you're facing with a level of frankness and sincerity you can't get from any other antibody event.
Meet innovative scientists and research leaders from big pharma and large biotech, and understand how they meet the challenges associated with engineering and designing more effective antibody drugs.
We work harder than any other meeting organizer to put you in front of the individuals you want to meet, providing personal introductions and a host of other networking opportunities including:
Speed networking - Meet up to 50 other attendees in a one hour session. Introduce yourself to potential partners, collaborators and clients.
Over 8 hours of networking time built into the agenda
Innovative masterclasses providing you with the chance to get tailored solutions to the challenges you're facing.
Panel discussion - interactive Q&A sessions giving you an opportunity to join the discussion.
