The Antibody Biology and Engineering GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.
The 2024 Antibody Biology and Engineering Conference and Seminar will bring together international scientists from across academia and industry who are leading investigations into how antibodies, a key element of our immune defense system, bring about their protective effects. The meeting will allow both established and junior researchers, mostly PhDs and MD-PhDs and graduate students, to present and discuss their latest findings, develop ideas, forge new contacts, and initiate collaborations. Together, they will pave the way to new and better treatments for many common disorders including inflammatory conditions such as immune-mediated and autoimmune disorders, major infections, and cancer. Antibodies and antibody-expressing engineered cells (ex: CAR-T cells) in particular have been at the center of the most promising clinical results of the last decade in oncology and inflammatory diseases.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by June 21, 2023. Please check back for updates.
