For the past two decades, biologics have revolutionized the treatment of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease, and multiple sclerosis, and are widely used in treating a variety of cancers. Biologics is a rapidly developing field of therapeutics and there is a trend for pharmaceutical and biotech industries to drift toward biologics development due to the promise of biologic drugs.
At the SABPA Science & Technology Forum XI, we bring together leaders in academic and pharma/biotech industry to discuss current trend in biologics discovery and development, as well as challenges facing the field. The presentations will address new technologies in discovering novel biologic therapeutics including the use of unnatural amino acids, somatic hypermutation and directed molecular evolution as well as developing biologics delivery platform. The meeting will cover therapeutic antibodies, proteins, peptides, vaccines and therapeutic areas from cancers, autoimmune to cardiovascular diseases.
