With fascinating presentations from high caliber speakers, the Antibody Engineering conference is essential to understanding the advances in the field.

Celebrating 32 Years of Bringing The Community Together to Discuss Time-Critical Antibody Engineering Updates and Best Practices

Obtain Cutting-Edge Updates from Antibody Experts

  • Learn from the who's who in antibody science and thought-leaders in industry including the likes of Kristian G. Andersen, Ph.D. (Scripps Research) , James Wells, Ph.D. (UCSF)and Aviv Regev, Ph.D. (Genentech Research & Early Development). 
  • Dive into a programme created in conjunction with the Antibody Society, meaning second-to-none insights and the highest-caliber of speakers, exhibitors, and attendees
  • Put your questions to 135+ speakers from all areas of the antibody engineering & therapeutics community, allowing you to enhance your own drug discovery strategy

Overcome your Antibody and Engineering Challenges

  • Elevate your knowledge of how to engineer antibody therapeutics with improved drug-like properties to better combat a variety of diseases and to gain a competitive advantage over existing therapeutics already on the market
  • Develop your understanding of the decision-process behind therapeutic modality (antibody therapeutic, bispecific, fusion protein, antibody alternative, ADC, etc.) will give you the greatest chance of success in developing new therapeutics
  • Discover how to manipulate the immune system to develop novel therapeutics
  • Take the discussion outside of cancer: Finding new disease applications of antibody therapeutics 

Network with Best-in-Class In-Person or Virtually

Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics will provide you with ample opportunity to connect with hundreds of your antibody peers, both virtually and in-person:

  • Meet with academics and industry scientists, as well as the world-renowned speaker panel to understand both basic research in antibody and protein engineering as well as therapeutic applications
  • Discuss key topics across cocktails in two evening receptions and four networking lunches at the in-person conference in San Diego
  • Connect online through informal and formal networking options, including dedicated Q&A sessions, live panels, our instant messenger functionality, 1-to-1 video calls, and 70+ poster presentations
