Webinar: Generation and discovery of high affinity antibodies
Our webinar “Generation and discovery of high affinity antibodies” was live on April 27, 2022 at 1PM EDT.
In this webinar, we will
- Introduce Biocytogen’s Antibody Discovery Service capabilities, which includes multiple screening technologies and accommodates antibody discovery needs for multiple species, including human, mouse, and rat.
- Provide proof-of-concept data supporting the robust capabilities of the platform to identify high-quality antibodies with therapeutic potential.

Clarke Gasper, Ph.D. Senior Business Development Manager, Biocytogen Boston
Dr. Clarke Gasper’s research experience ranges from protein biochemistry and structural biology to antibody production and small molecule drug development. He began his research at San Diego State University working on the myosin chaperone protein UNC-45. He then went on to Caltech, where he was part of the NIH ENCODE research consortium managing their transcription factor antibody production pipeline and developed a fully automated chromatin immunoprecipitation assay for identifying transcription factor binding sites in the human genome. He went on to receive his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Boston University where he helped identify several small-molecules, lead candidates for treating diabetes and obesity. After 13 years in scientific research, he has joined Biocytogen, where he is currently a senior business development manager.
