The 4th Annual Engineering Antibodies conference at PEGS Europe presents the latest antibodies to watch, and explores technologies and new approaches to discover, design and engineer novel modalities and new platforms for existing and challenging targets. The conference will also explore new techniques such as deep sequencing, in silico engineering and gene editing to help further the understanding of the sequence and structure-function of the molecules, and close the gap from bench to clinic.
