This upcoming webinars hosted by Oxford Global will provide an insight on Drug Discovery & Antibody Research…

Webinar : March 15th | 2:30 pm GMT “Nanobodies as a Versatile and Clinically Validated Approach” hosted by Tony De Fougerolles, Chief Scientific Officer at Ablynx

This exciting webinar will discuss the exciting new antibody technology being developed by Ablynx, and aims to give attendees insight into the future of antibody discovery and development. Single domain antibodies represent a potential avenue for overcoming some of the limitations encountered by conventional antibody technology. As a leader in the field with over 40 active drug programmes, Ablynx has world-leading insight and experience in the use of immunoglobulin single variable domains, which we term Nanobodies®. Using both preclinical and clinical stage compounds as case studies, it will be shown how the use of Nanobodies can successfully address a range of concrete and distinct limitations of conventional antibody technology.
