Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Third Annual
Advancing Bispecific Antibodies to the Clinic for Oncology
Part of the 11th Annual PEGS: the essential protein engineering summit
May 6-7, 2015 | World Trade Center | Boston, Massachusetts


Bispecific antibodies are gaining widespread adoption thanks to a multi-pronged approach which has proven to be a powerful tool against intractable targets. Oncology is the best example where bispecific antibodies employ novel functionality for efficacy that is vastly improved over existing approaches. This meeting will review preclinical and clinical data and investigate tools and strategies for advancing molecules to the clinic.

Topics to be explored include: 

  • Review progress in the clinic
  • Combine ADC approaches with bispecifics
  • Engineer bispecifics with potent and broad inhibitory activity against HIV
  • Address immunotherapy targets with bispecifics
  • Evaluate strategies for T cell activation
  • Optimize targeting of bispecific antibodies
  • Minimize safety concerns
  • Target checkpoint regulation
  • Deal with immunogenicity and toxicity
