The Antibody Society is an international non-profit trade association representing individuals and organizations involved in antibody research and development. We aim to facilitate discussion and interchange of ideas regarding issues of fundamental importance for basic research, therapeutic development and clinical testing in the field. To achieve this objective, we organize meetings and workshops on topics relating to antibody research and development.
Recordings of our Symposia can be viewed on our YouTube channel. Topics include:
- Biopharmaceutical Informatics
- Harnessing Cytokines for Cancer Immunotherapy
- Emerging Immunotherapeutics for Ovarian Cancer Symposium
- Emerging Cancer Therapies Leveraging Gamma-Delta Effector T cells
Our educational webinars can be freely viewed On Demand. Our webinar series include:
- Antibody Discovery & Development
- Adaptive Immune Receptor Repertoires
- Commercializing Antibody Therapeutics
- Antibodies to Watch
- Antibody Validation
Our Adaptive Immune Receptor Repertoire (AIRR) Community holds meetings and workshops designed to develop standards and recommendations for: 1) obtaining, analyzing, curating and comparing/sharing NGS AIRR datasets; 2) using and validating tools for analyzing AIRR data; 3) relating AIRR NGS datasets to other “big data” sets, such as microarray, flow cytometric, and MiSeq gene-expression data; and 4) legal and ethical issues involving the use and sharing of AIRR data sets derived from human sources.
The most recent AIRR Community V meeting “Exploring New Frontiers” was held May 17-19, 2022, in La Jolla, CA. Session topics include: 1) Advances in Understanding Biological Processes of AIRR, 2) Advances in AIRR-seq Addressing Human Health and Disease, 3) Introduction to Systems Immunology, 4) Discussion on Sustainability of the AIRR Community. More information about the meeting can be found here.
We serve as Scientific Advisors and Session Chairs for two key meetings, Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics, traditionally held in San Diego, and Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics Europe. Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics conferences are our premier forums for scientific exchange and networking in the fields of antibody engineering and therapeutics, immunobiology and next-generation binders. For over 25 years, renowned academic and industry scientists from around the world have convened to share best practices and scientific results to accelerate antibody research, discovery efforts and clinical programs. We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam and San Diego!
