SMi presents the 6th Annual Conference

Antibodies & Antibody Drug Conjugates

Date: 9th – 10th April 2018

Location: Copthorne Tara Hotel, London, UK



About ADC

SMi is proud to present their 6th annual Antibodies and Antibody Drug Conjugates conference, being held at the Copthorne Tara Hotel, London, UK on the 9th – 10th April 2018. With an every-growing industry, the market is expected to reach USD 30 Billion by 2023.

Antibodies and antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) have the potential to make a ground-breaking impact upon medicinal therapies, diagnostics and characterization of diseases. There is massive potential for ADCs to be used in the development of targeted solid tumour therapies, due to their ability to act as precisely and effectively on target antigens.

Join us this April 2018, as SMi’s ADC Summit conference brings together industry experts from leading life science and pharmaceutical companies. Key topics that will be covered in the upcoming event include: fragment drug conjugates, ADC payloads, site-selective ADCs/ site-specific conjugation and the best linker and warhead combinations.
