The Westin Immunogenicity Seminar is a unique forum for industry and academic professionals to share ideas, present research updates, and network with potential collaborators. This event is scheduled for Friday, October 11, from 10:00AM to 5:00PM, followed by networking cocktail hour. Breakfast and a box lunch will be provided to attendees.

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.

Discussion topics are to include:

  • Determinants of immunogenicity
  • Induction of tolerance
  • Measuring and modulating immunogenicity
  • Immunogenicity and tolerance in immuno-oncology applications

Featured keynote speakers are to include:

Annie De Groot, MD
Research Professor and Director, Institute for Immunology and Informatics (iCubed)
