Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Sixth Annual
Bispecific Antibody Therapeutics
Engineering Multispecificity
January 12-13, 2017 | Hilton San Diego Bayfront | San Diego, CA


Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Bispecific Antibody Therapeutics conference explores the challenges of engineering multispecificity in order to achieve more effective therapies that bind to at least two molecular targets simultaneously. Next-generation antibody formats are proving fruitful in the efforts to conquer cancer and other diseases. Case studies highlight novel engineering approaches that address safety, stability, enhanced targeting, and manufacturability, as the conference examines current developments and also future directions of these promising molecules.

We invite presentation proposals on the following preliminary topics:

  • Case studies
  • Preclinical & clinical data
  • Cancer
  • Antitumor activity
  • Tumor specific antigens (TSAs)
  • Stability
  • Crossing the blood-brain barrier (BBB)
  • Bi- and trispecific antibodies
  • Engineering multivalency
  • Variable domains
  • Binding specificities
  • Bispecific T cell engagers (BiTEs)
  • Antibody mimetics
  • Antibody-antigen binding kinetics
  • Immunogenicity
  • Effector functions

Please click here to submit a speaking proposal for review.

Deadline for submission: May 27, 2016

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference will be given to abstracts from those within pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, regulators and those from academic centers. Additionally, as per CHI policy, a select number of vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
