On Thursday the 30th of March 2023, our talented early-stage researcher (ESR) within the ITN project ONCORNET2.0, Stephanie Mareike Anbuhl , presented her poster on the reformatting of improved CXCR4-targeting single domain antibodies for biophysical detection methods on the annual meeting of the Medicinal Chemistry & Chemical Biology (MCCB) division of the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society (KNCV) in Lunteren.
On her poster, Stephanie illustrated how various immunization and phage display approaches can aid the development of novel CXCR4 binding single domain antibodies against previously untargeted epitopes or conformations and with unprecedented affinity and potency. Also, Stephanie showed examples how such molecules can be developed into higher order multivalent formats for improving potencies even further as well as conjugating them to make them suitable for different biophysical detection techniques such as bioluminescence resonance energy transfer-based approach called NanoB2.
We are pleased to announce that the jury decided to reward the work and presentation by Stephanie with the 2023 MCCB poster prize. Congratulations!
