Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 8th Annual

Advancing Bispecific Antibodies and Combination Therapy to the Clinic

Creating the Killer Combo

May 6-7, 2020

The development of bispecific antibodies is one of the hottest areas in biologic research at the moment and their advancement to preclinical and clinical development will determine what the future of this area will look like. The 8th Annual Advancing Bispecific Antibodies and Combination Therapy to the Clinic conference brings together leading researchers in this area to strategize on the safety and efficacy of new constructs, review the latest clinical results, and talk about expanding their use beyond oncology.
