Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Sixth Annual
Engineering Bispecific Antibodies
The Future of Antibody Development
Part of the 11th Annual PEGS: the essential protein engineering summit
May 7-8, 2015 | World Trade Center | Boston, Massachusetts


This conference will highlight different approaches to bispecific antibody constructs and reveal key elements for efficacy and drug-like properties. Disease areas beyond oncology will be reviewed, such as ophthalmology, infectious disease, and inflammatory diseases. Aspects for enhancement such as purification, stability, neutralization, enhanced targeting, modulating immune response, expression, characterization, improvements in humanization and clearance will be considered.

Key strategies and technologies to be reviewed include: 

  • Design bispecific antibodies against infectious disease and inflammatory targets including HIV
  • Assess technologies to cross the blood brain barrier
  • Minimize immunogenicity and toxicity
  • Optimize production techniques
  • Improve expression, purification, clearance, solubility and stability
  • Employ approaches for immunomodulation and immunotherapy
  • Increase immune effector functions

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.
