Last year’s speakers include:

World ADC is finished for 2014.

Thanks to all for joining and hopefully see you next year in San Diego, 19th-22nd October. This year we were treated to over 70 expert speakers sharing their experiences in ADC development and over 600 members of the community participating.

Key amongst this year’s themes was the challenge of translational research and the need to maximize the therapeutic window of ADCs. Significant progress in assessing toxicity, learning from failures and optimizing efficacy were shared with over 15 clinical stage case studies and plenary talks, while the very best highlights from the 2014 program were:

  • Hans Peter Gerber who shared Pfizer’s pivotal new work on preclinical cancer models
  • ImmunoGen’s John Lambert detailed their lessons learned from 30 years of ADC experimentation
  • Nathan Ihle from Seattle Genetics talked about their testing strategies for specifying ADC product heterogeneity and drug impurities
  • A fascinating case study on the impact of trisulfide modification on conjugation efficiency was shared by Genentech’s Fred Jacobson
  • MedImmune’s Robert Hollingsworth presenting their tools for matching ADC technology to target biology

The feedback from the meeting has been fantastic and unfortunately we couldn’t credit all of the speakers who got good comments.

"World ADC allows me to learn how others are innovating in the ADC field, which is simultaneously a humbling experience and a unique opportunity to expand on my own crazy ideas." Genentech

"World ADC is the premier ADC meeting, bringing together the thought-leaders, pioneers and next generation developments that will change how we treat diseases like cancer." Research Corporation Technologies

"The only conference I look forward to and delivers timely results every time." Regeneron

Congratulations to all those who took part in the World ADC Awards, the Extended Poster Session and the Clinical Day. All three were new sessions for 2014 and will be making returns in 2015 for you to enjoy.

"Extensive, novel research topics were seen at World ADC 2014… Speakers sharing and showing their expertise was inspiring." Formosa Labs

"World ADC is the largest conference with an exclusive focus on ADC.  It is an excellent chance to assess the field's direction and meet with other ADC companies." Tanabe

"The number one ADC meeting in the world!!!"Viventia

Work is under way to devise an even better program next year but we’d like your help. We need your feedback, ideas, recommendations, proposals and crazy suggestions to the meeting to the next level. Send us your thoughts, let us know if you can take a call or join us at one of our Mastermind Sessions. We hope to connect soon and for reference our next World ADC Masterminds in January so let us know if you want to get involved.
