About Event

Don’t miss the only event helping to improve efficacy of traditional payloads, diversify mechanisms of action in toolkits of payloads and broader therapeutics applications of ADCs in cancer and beyond!

We are currently riding a wave of innovation following major successes from the lower potency Topo1 payloads used in Trodlevy and Enhertu. Drug developers are looking to expand their toolkit of payloads with optimized topo1 inhibitors, tubulin inhibitors and DNA damaging agents, and leveraging completely novel mechanisms of action, such as the NMT inhibitors, amanitin based toxins and oligonucleotide payloads.

This is your only opportunity to hear in-depth presentations from leading ADC developers focussed on physiochemical structural modifications and novel discoveries in the ADC payload field.

Take a look at a few of our event highlights:

favicon adc

Myricx Bio, winner of the Best ADC Poster 2023 at the 10th World ADC Awards, will share validation of their novel N-Myristoyltransferase Inhibitor with pre-clinical efficacy studies

favicon adc

Bolt Biotherapeutics, will present their chemistry considerations when developing immune stimulating antibody conjugates with a sneak peek at their proprietary STING-agonist ISAC demonstrating low activity in cytokine release syndrome safety models

favicon adc

Sutro Biopharma, developers of ADCs with TOPO1 inhibitor payloads, will showcase their work in analyzing relationships between payload structure alterations and biological activity to provide insights into the molecular determinants of efficacy and toxicity

favicon adc

Merck will share details about their PROxAb Shuttle Platform that enables plug-and-play solutions for targeted PROTAC delivery


Build upon successes from Topoisomerase payloads and explore novel camptothecin analogues to develop the next-generation of Dxd and Exatecans with Sutro Biopharma and the NIH.

Explore how novel PROTAC degrader payloads bound to antibodies can improve safety and efficacy profiles, how their catalytic nature enables cellular processes to be disrupted, and the role of SAR studies play in enabling antibody conjugation alongside Merck KGaA and Orum Therapeutics.

Learn the impact of different payload types have on your choice of linker and conjugation technology to enable optimal DAR, payload stability and release with Tubulis and Takeda.

Match payload classes with relevant efficacy and toxicities to uncover emerging trends in payload development and assess gaps in payload design during our Exclusive Workshop Sessions.

Explore novel payloads including NMT, RNA Polymerase II inhibitors and KIF20A Kinesin to understand how novel MoA can offer efficacy and safety improvement over payload classes currently in development.
