Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 8th Annual

Bispecific and Multispecific Antibody Therapeutics

24-25 April 2024


Bispecific and multispecific antibody research stands at the forefront of progress in cancer immunology, inspiring innovators and researchers alike as it paves the way for groundbreaking advancements. Despite recent strides, numerous formidable challenges remain, such as complex design, immunogenicity, limited half-life, off-target effects, lack of applications to solid tumors, tumor escape, improving yield, and reducing manufacturing costs. Here, we comprehensively explore the design, engineering, characterization, production, manufacturing, and clinical applications to bispecific and multispecific antibodies. Join us for Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 8th Annual Bispecific and Multispecific Antibody Therapeutics Conference, where experts and visionaries gather to discuss solutions to the most persistent issues in this field.
