iBio to Highlight Technology for Advancing Discovery of Bispecifics at Festival of Biologics
- VP of Platform Technologies, Matt Greving, to present data on enhancing T-cell engagers using machine-learning guided epitope steering and mammalian display antibody libraries -
BRYAN, Texas and SAN DIEGO, Oct. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iBio, Inc. (NYSEA:IBIO) (“iBio” or the “Company”), an AI-driven innovator of precision antibody immunotherapies, announced today that Matt Greving Ph.D., its Vice President of Platform Technologies and Machine Learning, has been selected to present on the Company's technology for enhancing bispecific T-cell engagers (“TCE”) at the Festival of Biologics from Oct. 10-12 in Basel, Switzerland.
The Festival of Biologics is one of the industry's most prominent conferences focused on biologics and the discovery and development of antibody-based therapeutics, bringing together leaders from pharma, biotech, and academic and research institutions.
Dr. Greving's presentation, titled "Enhancing Bispecific T Cell Engager Discovery, Potency, Safety and Developability with Machine Learning and Mammalian Display," will provide an overview of how iBio's technology stack - including epitope engineering, fully human antibody library and EngageTx™ for bispecific optimization - potentially overcomes challenges in the discovery of bispecific TCEs, a promising area of research in immunotherapies for cancer. He will present data demonstrating how iBio's machine learning (ML)-driven epitope steering and mammalian-display antibody libraries efficiently discover diverse TCE arms tuned for potency, toxicity, developability and cyno cross-reactivity. The presentation will take place on Oct. 12 at 12:20 p.m. CET.
"Bispecific antibodies play a growing role in cancer immunotherapy research because of their ability to guide human immune cells to attack and destroy tumor cells with a single molecule, but developing them is challenging," Dr. Greving said. "We've demonstrated our technology can efficiently optimize next-gen CD3-T cell engager bispecifics, and we believe we are well positioned to use our platform to tackle hard-to-drug targets both internally and with partners and collaborators."
Along with the presentation, Dr. Greving will chair a session on AI and Machine Learning, titled "Pitfalls to Avoid When Building an AI-Driven Platform Company," on Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 2:20 p.m. CET.
