Thank you for joining us at The Antibody Society’s annual Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics meeting held December 9-13, 2019 in San Diego. The meeting was a great opportunity for Society members to connect with industry and academic scientists and executives from around the world, and learn about advances in antibody discovery and development.
As always, The Antibody Society’s members designed the scientific program and acted as session Chairs. The meeting featured sessions on Antibody Libraries, Selection, Screening and Engineering; Bioinformatics and Computational Tools for Antibody Optimization and Engineering; Clinical Data and Lessons from Cancer Immunotherapy; Systems Immunology for Target Discovery; and Targeting Subcellular Trafficking Pathways to Generate Antibody Therapeutics.
AE&T Student/Postdoc Poster Competition
The Society sponsored a poster competition for students and postdocs, with winners receiving complimentary registration, support for travel expenses, and an opportunity to present at the conference. Congratulations to the winners:
Timothy Czajka, University of New York at Albany. Poster title: RIP-Off: An Intrabody-based Strategy to Neutralize Ricin and other Ribosome-Inactivating Protein (RIP) Toxins.
Kamal Joshi, PhD., Genentech. Poster title: Toward Deeper Understanding of Bispecific Antibodies
“Thank you again to the Antibody Society for this recognition and opportunity to speak here. This is my third time attending the Antibody Engineering and Therapeutics conference and each time I’ve learned more than I could possibly remember and return to the lab with a huge surge of excitement and several new ideas that I’d like to apply to my own project. I’m honored to be able to present my own research this year alongside so many fascinating talks and to be able to engage with many different experts in the field. I would also like to thank my advisor, Nicholas Mantis, and Anne Messer for their help with my research and encouragement to attend and apply for this award.” Timothy Czajka
“It is an honor to receive this award. I would like to thank the judges for conferring this recognition on my work. I would also like to thank the Antibody Society, of course for funding my trip here but more importantly for organizing these fantastic meetings and providing a solid platform for the exchange of the latest information on antibody research and development benefiting all including early stage career scientists like me. It’s a real treat coming back to this meeting every time. Not only do I learn what is ongoing in the field, this meeting also provides me the opportunity to network with fellow scientists and facilitate connections. So again, thank you to the Antibody Society for this award. Thank you all.” Kamal Joshi, Ph.D.
