Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 24th Annual

Engineering Antibodies

Strategies and Science for Engineering Next-Generation Biotherapeutics

May 16-17, 2023


The field of protein engineering is at an exciting point in its development, with new generations of biotherapeutics now progressing through development and into the market, major technology advances, and a body of discovery stage and clinical evidence that can be used to inform the development of safe, highly effective therapies for unmet medical needs. The 24th PEGS Engineering Antibodies conference offers protein engineers an important annual forum for discussing new technologies and strategies for overcoming complex engineering challenges including membrane-bound targets, agonism, delivery and specificity, and support of discovery stage applications of ML/AI in refining lead selections. The track also explores the ongoing efforts of pharma companies to accelerate this stage of R&D and resolve bottlenecks.  


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Accelerating and optimizing engineering steps in R&D
  • Challenging targets (membrane proteins, intracellular targeting, amyloid targets)
  • Engineering agonists
  • Engineering for alternative antibody structures
  • Engineering for improved Fc function; matching effector function to indication
  • Engineering for tissue or local delivery, BBB strategies, new modalities for targeted delivery
  • Engineering pharmaceutical properties
  • Functional assays; high-throughput functional screening
  • High-throughput antibody discovery platforms
  • Miniaturization in antibody discovery technologies
  • Screening and mitigation steps for bad actors


The deadline for priority consideration is October 21, 2022.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
