Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 21st Annual

Engineering Antibodies

May 6-7, 2020


The field of protein engineering is at an exciting point in its development, with new generations of therapeutic antibodies now progressing through development and into the market, great advances in protein science and discovery technology, and a body of clinical evidence that can be used to inform the development of safe, highly effective therapies for unmet medical needs. The PEGS Engineering Antibodies conference explores case examples of the most significant emerging discovery and informatics technologies used by protein engineers working at the discovery and design stages to quickly and efficiently craft biotherapeutics directed at the most elusive targets and biological functions.
