About the Topic

Linking a small-molecule cytotoxic drug to a monoclonal antibody takes the strengths of both while potentially mitigating the liabilities. The resulting bioconjugates, known as antibody−drug conjugates or ADCs, have been validated clinically, with four approved anti-cancer agents for solid and hematological cancers. This workshop will broadly discuss the strategies for designing, constructing and analyzing ADCs utilizing the latest advances in the field.

This workshop will cover the following specific topics:

  • Overview of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) and clinical progress
  • Selecting a target for ADCs
  • The chemistry of linkers and drugs
  • Site-specific conjugation
  • Analytical characterization of ADCs
  • ADC bioanalysis & pharmacokinetics
  • Preclinical safety/toxicology
