This year the antibody drug conjugate (ADC) space has taken off like wildfire, with over 30 ADCs now in clinical trials, a number that only continues to grow. Demonstrating this surge of interest, the World ADC Summit will kick off in San Francisco on October 14, featuring leaders in ADC development from more than 40 organizations discussing best practices for designing and developing the optimal ADC.
Trevor Hallam, Ph.D., chief scientific officer of San Francisco-based Sutro Biopharma, will be presenting data at the conference involving an ADC developed using the company’s cell-free protein synthesis technology, at 11 am PT on Tuesday, October 15 in a presentation titled “Producing Homogeneous ADCs with Combination Warheads”.
Sutro’s technology enables hundreds of protein variants to be created and systematically screened, enabling a best-in-class ADC to be selected and significantly shortening development times. In 2012 Sutro formed a partnership with Celgene to develop ADCs…
