Therapeutic peptides are fast becoming big business, but some of the techniques for analyzing them appear to be old hat. Historically, a lot of critical work to understand peptides in the body was done with ligand-binding assays such as radioimmunoassays and ELISAs. However, the development time of methods based on these assays typically runs to several months, which is not very attractive to drug developers making the transition from the small molecule arena to the biotherapeutic world.
This GEN webinar will explore in detail both the benefits and challenges presented by the use of LC/MS for peptide bioanalysis, drawing on examples from recent case studies.
It will include insightful presentations and a live Q&A session, where you can pose your question(s) to our expert panelists.
*Illana Gozes, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer, Allon Therapeutics
*Erin Chambers, Senior Applications Chemist, Chemistry Applied Technology, Waters Corporation
What will be covered:
*Technology considerations in moving from basic research to translational medicine
*Research techniques for understanding how a peptide drug interacts in the body
*Choosing the right tools for taking critical measurements
*Main advantages of LC/MS for biotherapeutic peptide analysis
*Guidance on using LC/MS in sample prep for methods development
Who should attend:
*Bench scientists working on peptide drug development
*Laboratory directors looking to make the most efficient use of available technologies for their labs
*Investigators studying bioavailability, drug distribution, or biomarker quantitation
*Researchers seeking to develop generic biotherapeutic peptides
*Drug formulation specialists
*CRO managers overseeing therapeutic peptide projects
