Added On: 2016-10-12

The 4th annual LakePharma Protein Engineering Symposium was held at the South San Francisco Conference Center on Oct. 7th. Over 300 local scientists attended the day-long event, featuring presentations from Stanford, local biotech companies including Atreca, GigaGen, and TeneoBio, and large pharma companies including Janssen, Pfizer and Grifols.  Presentations focused on new technologies in immune repertoire expression and analysis, rapid development of therapeutic antibodies, promises and challenges in developing bispecific antibodies, and methods in analyzing antibody epitopes. In addition to formal presentations, the symposium included special topic workshops, a poster session, and a happy hour for networking.

“This symposium has become a significant annual local event. We are extremely proud to provide the platform for scientists to learn and network with colleagues throughout the field,” said Hua Tu, Ph.D, founder and CEO of LakePharma. “We truly appreciate the support from our distinguished speakers, attendees to the symposium, our customers, as well as service vendors who sponsored event.
