About the Topic

​Biotransformation of small molecules is intensively investigated during drug discovery and development stages. In contrast, biotransformation of larger molecules such as antibodies, proteins, antibody-drug conjugates, peptides and nucleotides has been less emphasized. In the last decade, there have been increasing interests and expertise in understanding of larger molecule biotransformation and disposition. This workshop will cover this topic for diverse therapeutics and provide an opportunity for the community to discuss the technical aspect, role and impact of biotransformation for development of larger molecule therapeutics.

Key topics:

  • Introduction to Disposition and Biotransformations of Larger Molecules 
  • Biotransformation and Trafficking of Peptide Therapeutics
  • Biotransforamtion and biodistribution of Oligonucleotide Therapeutics 
  • Biotransformation of Antibody Therapeutics
  • Biotransformation of Next-generation ADCs
  • Tissue Disposition of Protein and Antibody Therapeutics
