About the Topic

Topics to be covered:

1. Overview of therapeutic mAbs (Doanld McCarthy)
2. Antibody discovery (hit generation & characterization): antibody target category and selection, hybridomas/humanization, phage display, humanized mice or mice with humanized repertoire, single B cell screening technologies, analytical & biophysical methods for antibody characterization (Mohan Srinivasan)
3. Antibody engineering (for activity & stability): unconventional formats (camelids, nanobodies, bispecifics), Fc/glycan engineering, stability assessment, optimization for development (Mohan Srinivasan)
4. in vitro assays and in vivo models for antibody evaluation
5. Cell line development/CMC: Clone selection/cell line development, characterization, purification, formulation, process development, large scale & GMP manufacturing (Bo Yu)
6. IND enabling studies: ADAs/immunogenecity, GLP tox, PD/PK, preparing for and engaging with the FDA
