Véronique Lecault, Ph.D., Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, will be participating in a roundtable session discussing how health companies are building, scaling and tackling adoption challenges today in Canada.
Christopher Williamson, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist and Project Lead will be presenting “Amplifying antibody diversity with single-cell screening and immune repertoire sequencing” at the Festival of Biologics USA.
Christopher Williamson, Ph.D., Senior Scientist and Project Lead will be presenting “Amplifying Antibody Diversity – Single-Cell Screening Combined with Repertoire Sequencing from Humanized Mice” at the Protein & Antibody Engineering Summit.
Organized by UBC Faculty of Medicine and Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, Discovery to Commercialization is a series of education and networking events that aim to raise awareness and knowledge around the therapeutic commercialization process. Lucas Kraft will be representing AbCellera and presenting at the session ‘Building Bridges: How Researchers Came Together During COVID-19’.
Sherie will be presenting on “Amplifying antibody diversity: Single-cell screening combined with immune repertoire sequencing from humanized mice”.
Although the natural immune repertoire is a boundless source of therapeutic antibodies, merely sampling from it will not capture its full diversity. Maia Smith, co-creator of AbCellera’s proprietary data visualization tool Celium™ presented “Visualize scale and diversity in natural antibody discovery”. Celium™ is an intuitive and interactive software that visualizes antibodies discovered on AbCellera’s platform, and not only sorts them by clonal ties, functionality, and developability, but relates them to similar antibody sequences in our repertoire.

AbCellera has successfully completed several antibody discovery programs targeting GPCRs and ion channels. Marta presented insights on AbCellera’s innovative approach in her talk “Against Nature: How to Hack Immune Systems to Discover Antibodies that Target Complex Membrane Proteins”
Using clever immunization strategies and screening millions of single B cells, AbCellera has found and validated hundreds of ultra-low frequency and highly diverse antibodies. Senior Research Scientist, Christopher Williamson presented “Ultra-rare but there: natural and diverse antibodies against high homology targets” in the Protein Engineering stream at this year’s Festival of Biologics.
