Good, Better, Best – Building Your Program for Immunomodulating Therapeutics Symposium


Friday, October 18, 2019 | 8:30-17:00

Auditorium | Boehringer Ingelheim 
29 Avenue Tony Garnier
69007 Lyon, France



From vaccines to checkpoint inhibitors, immunomodulatory therapeutics represent a promising class of drugs for patients and developers alike, but bringing them to market demands a thoughtful program design that accounts for the unique challenges of biologic products.


Join a panel of experts from industry for a full day of stimulating presentations and case studies that highlight the key elements of a well-structured program, including optimal investigation of MoA with early in vitro data and cell-based assays and more.
