Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Seventeenth Annual
Phage and Yeast Display of Antibodies
Tools for Molecular Evolution
Part of the 11th Annual PEGS: the essential protein engineering summit
May 4-5, 2015 | World Trade Center | Boston, Massachusetts


The biologics market is being driven by innovation in design and diversity of biologic molecules. Directed evolution of biologics is critical to generating and screening an array of novel constructs for the right activity and properties. This conference will provide a review of the newest tools essential for antibody engineering. Leaders in the field will showcase the latest trends in technologies and approaches for creating the next generation of drug candidates.

Applications and Technologies using Phage and Yeast Display will include: 

  • Engineering proteins with improved properties
  • Addressing intracellular targets
  • Employing deep sequencing for library design
  • Optimizing library design and screening antibodies
  • Incorporating rational design and selection
  • Delivering across the blood-brain-barrier
  • Comparing and contrasting alternative display approaches
  • Discovering natural scaffolds and ligands

Scientists who wish to present their knowledge and expertise to their colleagues are asked to click here to submit an abstract. Remember to specify the conference that you are interested in and please provide your full contact information.

The deadline for submission is October 3, 2014. 

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academia. Additionally, vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
