About the Antibody Society

The Antibody Society is an international, non-profit association representing individuals and organizations involved in antibody-related research and development. Our members serve as the Scientific Advisors for the Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics (US) and the Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics Europe conferences. To provide additional opportunities for education and networking, we contribute scientific content and financial support for other conferences that cover topics relevant to antibody R&D, and are hosted by non-profit organizations. We research and analyze data on targeted therapeutics developed by the biopharmaceutical industry, and distribute our results and opinion via the Society’s website, presentations and publications. The Society also engages with government and international agencies on matters of importance to the antibody community.
