Antibodies as Drugs
joint with Targeted Cancer Therapies
Organizer(s): James D. Marks, E. Sally Ward and Louis M. Weiner
Date: March 27 - April 01, 2009
Location: Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC, Canada
Sponsored by Pfizer Global Research & Development
Summary of Meeting:
Despite being theorized more than 100 years ago as the “magic bullets” to treat a range of diseases, it is only within the last 10 years that antibodies have become an important class of therapeutics. This meeting will bring together experts from academia and industry to discuss the current state of antibody therapeutics, their mechanism of action in a range of medical indications, novel approaches to improving discovery, manufacturing, formulation, and pharmacokinetics, methods to predict and increase therapeutic efficacy, as well as novel therapeutic opportunities in cancer, infectious diseases, allergy, inflammatory diseases, and the neurosciences. This meeting will be of interest to academic and industry scientists working in all these fields.
