Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics Europe
June 11-13, 2019
Postillion Hotel Amsterdam, the Netherlands
The Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics Europe meeting was a great opportunity for Society members to connect with industry and academic scientists and executives from Europe and around the world focused on antibody and protein therapeutic discovery and development. As always, The Antibody Society’s members designed the scientific program and acted as session Chairs.
Keynote speakers Jane Osbourn, Ph.D., (Vice President R&D and Site Leader of Medimmune) discussed antibody therapeutic developments, pipeline and progress at Medimmune and Hans Clevers, M.D., Ph.D., (Group Leader, Hubrecht Institute for Developmental Biology and Stem Cell Research and Professor of Molecular Genetics, University Medical Center Utrecht and Utrecht University) discussed Lgr5 stem cell-based organoids and their applications in cancer research. In addition, the meeting featured sessions on Turning Antibody Leads into Drugs, Recent Advances in Immuno-Oncology Approaches, Bioinformatics and Repertoires in Antibody Discovery and Development, Antibody Therapeutics for Autoimmune and Neurodegenerative Diseases, Clinical Developments in Antibody Therapeutics, and New Antibody Formats and Effector Functions.
The agenda is available here.
