Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural

Biotherapeutic Targeting Strategies

January 20-21, 2021


The new Biotherapeutic Targeting Strategies program presents exciting new developments in the quest to solve the most vexing targeting challenges in pharmaceutical R&D. The conference explores strategies for intracellular and membrane-bound targets, delivery and activation approaches, mitigating off-target effects and the prospects for designing and optimizing binding characteristics. These solutions offer researchers attending the meeting valuable tools in developing biotherapeutics for new indications and with improved efficacy and safety profiles.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:

  • Conditional and contextual activation
  • Crossing the BBB; trafficking in the brain 
  • Custom designed binding proteins
  • Emerging targets for neurological diseases
  • Engineering to minimize off target effects
  • Impact of affinities and epitopes on function
  • Improving localization, targeting and specificity
  • Interactions with downstream signaling cascades
  • Intracellular targeting
  • New strategies for biotherapeutic conjugation
  • Targeting transmembrane proteins
  • Targeting the tumor microenvironment


If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.


The deadline for priority consideration is July 24, 2020.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.


If you are selected as a speaker for this virtual event, we request that you pre-record your presentation and be available during the “live” portion January 20-21 for interactive Q&A and panel discussions.
