5th Antibody Industrial Symposium – AIS2017

The 5th Antibody Industrial Symposium (AIS2017), organized by LabEx MAbImprove, MabDesign and Polepharma will be held on June 27-28, 2017 at the VINCI Congress Center in Tours, France and will be dedicated to the Antibody-Drug Conjugates (ADCs).

For this year’s edition, the Scientific committee has set-up an exciting program focusing on the theme: “ADCs : Design & Development for Therapy and Imaging in and beyond Cancer”. This two-day event is the ideal conference for scientists, industrials and policy makers to exchange about the latest innovations (talks from big pharmaceutical companies & keynote lectures), to discover new creative projects (pitch talks), and to develop business opportunities & partnering (schedule B2B meetings during both days).

The topics covered during the meeting are:

  • ADCs, empowering Cancer Therapy,
  • Discovery of novel ADCs targets and formats
  • Accelerate the development of the next-generation of ADCs
  • Challenges in ADCs Developability, scale-up and manufacturing
  • Moving ADCs forward into clinic: safety and efficacy


Furthermore, several high-profile speakers have already confirmed their presence:

  • Christian Klein – Roche
  • Ravi Chari – Immunogen
  • Alain Beck – Pierre Fabre
  • Rakesh Dixit – MedImmune
  • Andreas Pahl – Heidelberg Pharma
  • Philip Howard – Spirogen
  • Marie Prisicille Brun – Sanofi
  • Thomas Sandal – Crescendo Biologics
  • François D’Hooge – Novasep
  • Klaus Kaiser – Bayer
