WEBINAR – The strategy behind your journey to GMP with emphasis on linker payload development


We are doing a webinar on the 5th May at 3PM BST/4PM CET.

Register for the webinar here.

In this webinar, we will review the pros and cons of semi-synthetic and synthetic linker payloads as well as discuss the considerations that should be taken when conjugating your linker payload to its antibody, with the ultimate goal of generating successful clinical material. Examples that illustrate how to overcome the challenges of linker payloads will be presented.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Discover the pros and cons of semi-synthetic linker payloads
  • Discover the pros and cons of synthetic linker payloads
  • What to consider in conjugating your linker payload to your antibody
  • Considerations in combining small and large molecules in the GMP environment leading to successful clinical material.
