Engineering Antibody Therapies for Diseases in the Central Nervous System

Tuesday, September 20, 2022

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

About the Event

Diseases in the central nervous system (CNS) are often difficult to treat. Antibody and protein-based therapeutics hold huge promises in CNS disease treatment. Using Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and GBM as examples, this presentation will discuss the platforms developed by the Texas Therapeutics Institute to increase macromolecule brain entry to combat CNS diseases.
