2nd Workshop Biomedical Applications of Engineered Antibodies and Proteins

2 Dec 2016
Cossar Hall, Monash University (Parkville campus)

This free all-day workshop will focus on the latest developments in antibody engineering across a variety of applications that include diagnostic/bioanalytical reagents and associated medical devices, imaging/theranostics, biologic medicines and targeted nanomedicines.

The workshop, run jointly by the CBNS and the new ARC Training Centre for Biopharmaceutical Innovation at UQ, and Monash University, will include presentations from invited speakers across the field.

The day will run from 8.30am to 5.30pm and lunch, morning and afternoon tea provided free.
