Next Generation Protein Therapeutics Summit 2014

Grand Hyatt Hotel
San Francisco, CA
2013 Event Wrap-Up
IBC's 8th annual Next Generation Protein Therapeutics Summit took place at the beautiful Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, California, June 26th through 28th, 2013.
Keynote speaker Peter Schultz of Scripps kicked off the conference with an exciting presentation discussing protein engineering using an expanded genetic code while keynote speaker Hans-Peter Gerber of Pfizer discussed the development of antibody-drug conjugates, which gave a fantastic preview of topics to be discussed at the co-located Bioconjugates conference.
Really exciting data was presented in the creative protein engineering and design track, while the session on targeting strategies & protein delivery explored new approaches for manipulating the movement of protein therapeutics across challenging barriers. Some of the most compelling talks featured preclinical and clinical data that highlighted the progress in the field. The event also featured session on protein screening, selection and characterization; immunogenicity prediction; expanding "druggable" target space; bispecifics and recruiting the immune system for cancer therapy. A tutorial at the event also provided strategies to build better libraries using various display technologies, selection methods and affinity maturation strategies.
The networking discussions and opportunities at the event were numerous including a poster session which featured over 30 posters, a 100% increase from 2012. The exhibit hall doubled in size as well from 2012 and included a "speed networking" event, moderated roundtable discussions and cocktail receptions. The networking highlight of the event had to be the "Happy Hour on the Beach" which took place on the sand overlooking the shimmering pacific, with the gorgeous Hotel del Coronado serving as a backdrop.
Mark your calendar now for the 2014 dates of this conference, which will be held again June 4-6, 2014 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Union Square in San Francisco.
