Novel Targets and Emerging Therapeutic Areas track banner


The proliferation of engineering approaches has accelerated the pace of exploring novel targets against cancer, autoimmune, inflammatory disease and a range of other indications. The Novel Targets and Emerging Therapeutic Approaches program will highlight success with improved targeting and innovative solutions to address challenges that remain. Join us this November in Lisbon for a dynamic look at the incredible progress and myriad of solutions that are being investigated to create first-in-class biotherapeutics.

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Identifying and validating new targets in oncology, infectious disease, autoimmune, inflammatory disease and emerging indications
  • Exploring synthetic cytokines, conditional binders, targeted enzymes
  • Investigating target agnostic approaches to discover new epitopes
  • Discovering antibodies from patients
  • Exploiting gene therapy and CRISPR for antibody engineering
  • Altering kinetics and compartmentalization for bispecific constructs
  • Delivering antibodies into the tumor micro-environment
  • Incorporating endogenous and synthetic immunity into targeting strategies
  • Reducing off-tumor toxicity with selective binding at tumor site

If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.


The deadline for priority consideration is 10 April 2020.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
