Strategies and Tools for Creating the Next Generation of Biologics

FARMINGTON, Conn., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Tools for engineering the next generation of antibodies and biologics will need to address the current challenges facing the industry. These include tapping into innovative ideas for developing antibodies against intracellular and membrane targets, engineering bispecific constructs, and designing antibodies for infectious disease and CNS applications. The versatility of phage and yeast display, coupled with vast improvements in antibody engineering and production, are expanding the realm of possibilities for creating therapeutic entities and improving their success rate.


15th Annual Phage and Yeast Display of Antibodies and Recombinant Proteins
April 29 – 30, 2013

Phage and yeast display are essential tools for engineering the next generation of antibody libraries. The technology is being exploited for half life extension, epitope mapping, membrane targets, blood-brain-barrier entry, and intracellular targets. Ligands for previously intractable targets are being derived through directed evolution for a spectrum of novel constructs, including bispecific antibodies and ADCs, antibody fragments and alternative scaffolds. Deep sequencing of antibody libraries is improving library diversity and yielding drug candidates with improved efficacy. Plan to attend this year's meeting to see how to improve the capacity for drug candidates to be developed, manufactured and scaled-up.
