Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural

Bispecific Antibody Design and Applications

Maximizing I-O Therapeutic Potential with Novel Platforms

11-12 March, 2020


As a growing class of immunotherapies, bispecific antibodies continue to show significant and impressive therapeutic value. While the development of bispecific antibodies is an evolving field, many challenges are still waiting to be solved by experts in the field including target selection, better understanding of their mechanism of action, along with the combination selection of targets. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural Bispecific Antibody Design and Applications will focus on the challenges of bispecific development and their applications for immuno-oncology therapies including cytotoxic effector cell redirecting such as T-cell and NK-cell engagers, enhancing the efficacy and internalization of antibody-drug-conjugates (ADCs) and many more.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:

  • Target selection and engagement
  • Enhancing selectivity for T cell, NK cell and macrophage engagers
  • Rational design and understanding the mode of action of bispecific platforms
  • Compare and contrast CARs versus BiTEs
  • Dual targeting strategies
  • Bi- and multi-specific platforms
  • Conjugation strategies
  • Bispecifics targeting non-checkpoint inhibitor
  • Compare and contrast different combination selection for bispecific design
  • Immunogenicity data and prediction for bispecifics
  • Case studies and clinical updates for bispecifics
