The lectures are free and open to the public.
Dr. Rader’s lecture, scheduled for 4:45 p.m., is “Cancer Therapy with Antibodies at the Interface of Biology and Chemistry,” describing his research efforts, including site-specific antibody-drug conjugates and chemically programmed antibodies. He is the author of more than 100 publications, holds eight issued patents, and has 17 patent applications pending in the area of antibody technologies. He joined the Scripps Institute’s East Coast campus in 2012. Previously, he spent nine years as senior scientist and head of the Antibody Technology Section in the Experimental Transplantation and Immunology Branch of the Center for Cancer Research at the National Cancer Institute.
