The Westin Immunogenicity Seminar is a unique forum for industry and academic professionals to share ideas, present research updates and network with potential collaborators.  The purpose of this seminar is to bridge the gap between protein drug development and recent academic research on Tregs, Tregitopes, with a special focus on immunogenicity, deimmunization and tolerance induction. This catered event takes place at the beautiful Westin Tokyo.
