6th Antibody Industrial Symposium 2018


6th Antibody Industrial Symposium 2018 (AIS2018)

 June 25/26, Montpellier- France

The Symposium will take place at the “Le Corum” conference center in the heart of Montpellier providing easy transport link and plenty of accommodation close to the venue.


This congress, jointly organized by the scientific society LabEx MAbImprove and the industrial organization MabDesign, is part of the series of Industrial Symposia organized by MAbImprove since 2013 (Antibodies Biosimilars, MAbDosing, MAbDelivery, Current & Next Generation Antibody Formats, Antibody Drug Conjugates).


The AIS2018 is the ideal conference for scientists, industrials, physicians and policy makers to exchange about therapeutic antibodies.

The Scientific committee has set-up and exciting program around this year theme: “Targets for MAbs: Innovative approaches for their discovery & validation”, with keynote lectures, pitch talks around new creative projects, and industrial talks from big pharmaceutical companies.

The meeting is driven by the fact that the target selection is fundamental for the successful development of therapeutic antibodies. In different sessions we will address the following questions: What are the characteristics of "good" antibody targets? Which techniques can be used for their discovery & selection? Which path should one select for validating targets and bringing them to the clinics? What mode of action/function is preferred for a given target?


The topics to be discussed are:

  • Validated Targets: lessons learned from success & failure in clinical 
  • Discovery Approaches: Accessing clinical material, Target Identification platforms, OMICS-based analysis
  • New Approaches/Technologies for Discovery & Validation of New Targets for mAbs
  • Pre-Clinical Validation: Methods, Models & Companion tests 
  • Emerging Targets : Immunocheckpoints & Microenvironment


The program contains several opportunities for networking, companies to showcase their new products and technologies as well as dedicated time for business partnering.
