World ADC Frankfurt 2015 did not disappoint in it’s mission to help you to not only learn how to make an ADC, but how to make a great one. With insights on numerous novel payload technologies, robust strategies for preclinical evaluation and emerging clinical data, there was no better way to kick start your research in the new year.

More than 50 of Europe’s leading experts shared valuable lessons learned, including AstraZeneca, BMS and Concortis to Roche, Synthon and Takeda.
