PRLog - May 23, 2014 - LONDON -- SMi’s inaugural Immunogenicity taking place this July in London will provides 2 days, 15+ presentations, 3 panel discussions, networking and case study driven presentations designed to answer the questions: What stimulates an immune response? How does the system cope with immunogenic compounds? And how do you screen for potential problems?
With an ever growing demand for biologic therapeutics in the Pharmaceutical Industry, this year's programme has been tailored for an audience of professionals working in immunogenicity from drug design through to clinical development and clinical trials.
Conference highlights include a keynote address from Martin Lechmann, Development DMPK Project Leader from Roche. The presentation entitled: Insight into the Development of Biological Therapeutics will discuss the main principles of immunogenicity testing during product development and will also be reviewing the pharmacokinetic effects of biological therapeutics.
The opening address at the Immunogenicity conference will be made by Melody Sauerborn, Senior Immunogenicity Expert from TNO Triskelion. When asked about the event she commented:
"This conference offers a very broad selection of topics in addition to very well-known names in the field of immunogenicity”
“My presentation and workshop aims at delivering the fundaments in immunology and immunogenicity to the audience so they are all on the same page and their knowledge and mains refreshed on the topic of immunogenicity to fully appreciate and fully take in the other presentations and topics”
