We are pleased to announce our first Biologics by Design symposium. This is a 1-day meeting focusing on methods in early stage biologics design.
Short hands-on computational biologics design workshops in the morning will be followed by scientific presentations in the afternoon. The afternoon program is organized by
the BMI Discussion Group (Biologics, Modeling, and Informatics Discussion Group). The meeting will end with a social reception.
Please note that space is limited so early registration is recommended.

Biologics, Modeling, and Informatics (BMI) Discussion Group is an informal open forum that brings together scientists
from diverse backgrounds who are passionate about modeling, data-science, and biologics. This organization serves as a forum to share ideas, goals, and expertise
to enable open communication and collaboration among industry scientists, academicians, and software engineers. We strive to enable hypothesis driven biologics
discovery and engineering using molecular modeling and informatics.
Core Team: Stanley Krystek (Bristol-Myers Squibb), Vanita Sood (EMD Serono), Sandeep Kumar (Pfizer), Randal Ketchem (Just Biotherapeutics), Sarah Sirin (AbbVie)
There is no cost to attend but pre-registration is required as seats are limited. Registrations will be processed and accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
