Come along to this seminar to hear from Dr Win-Yan Chan, Research Scientist, UCB who will introduce UCB’s Technology Platform Access Programme. Oxford Academic Dr Hannah Chen will give us her insight of collaborating with UCB utilising the platform.
UCB’s Technology Platform Access Programme gives academics and other researchers a unique opportunity to discover and develop novel antibodies against potential therapeutic targets. The state-of-the-art antibody discovery platform employs a novel high-throughput B cell culture screening method and bespoke automation to facilitate the discovery of rare antibodies with desirable characteristics. This large investment has expanded UCB’s capacity and enabled them to allow academic researchers access to these capabilities.
If you are working on targets that can be modulated by antibodies, UCB would like to explore a possible collaboration. Expressions of interest are encouraged in a range of therapeutic areas including but not limited to inflammation and autoimmunity, CNS disorders, fibrosis and metabolic disease, as well as for targets that may benefit multiple therapeutic areas.

There is also the opportunity to apply for an MRC award to work with UCB on the platform – more information will be given about this in the seminar. mrc.ukri.org/funding/browse/mrc-ucb-adi/mrc-ucb-antibody-discovery-initiative-adi
Win-Yan will be available after the seminar from 13:30 – 15:00 to talk more to researchers who’s work might have potential to benefit from the Technology Platform Access programme. A networking lunch will be provided after the seminar.
