Q: What is your favorite fun fact?

A: Kindness is contagious.

Q: What do you do in your free time?

A: I like to cook, bake (and decorate), crafts and DIY, adventure with my chameleon, crossfit, run, hike, and explore state parks, blog, research/read about scientific topics and journal articles to improve my understanding and to be able to think of my own experiments, spend time with my Nana and Papa, guitar, hiking, biking, sell painted shells for charity, throw knives, and sew.

Q: What is the coolest thing you have done at Abveris or what is your favorite memory of working here?

A: It's really hard to choose just one. My favorite part of Abveris is working with such incredible people. I have a favorite memory with each person specifically, but my favorite memory as a group is the company party because I got to introduce my blood family to my work family. The coolest things I have done is a tie between getting the opportunity to attend and present at PEGS, getting to decorate the lab/office areas, when we troubleshoot and are able to get good sequence results from a difficult clone, and I'm extra excited about being able to contribute to develop ion channel antibodies.

CSO of Abveris, Colby Souders, Ph.D., to Present at Discovery On Target 2019

By Ryan Kelly on 8/22/19 9:07 AM

August 22, 2019 – Boston, MA – Representatives from Abveris will attend the 17th Annual Discovery On Target Conference, September 16-19, 2019, in Boston, MA. Colby Souders, Chief Scientific Officer of Abveris, will serve as chairperson for the Antibody Engineering and Development Forum and present "Screening Tools for Early Prediction of Development and Clinical Success" at 3:40PM on Thursday, September 19. An abstract for the presentation is listed below.

Click here to schedule an appointment with the Abveris team during the conference.

Abstract: As industry-wide advancements in antibody drug discovery continue to push toward larger panels of candidates for early-stage characterization, more efficient identification of lead molecules through enhanced screening resolution is required. Integrating tools and methods into the overall characterization workflow enables reliable, high throughput selection of lead candidates more effectively than alternative traditional techniques. Comparisons across platforms, including traditional ELISA, flow cytometry, Octet and in vivo studies will be presented that provide enhanced prediction of downstream development and clinical success.

About Discovery On Target: The 17th Annual Discovery on Target (DOT), the industry’s preeminent event on novel drug targets and technologies, will convene over 1,300 drug discovery professionals in Boston, MA, on September 16-19, 2019. This event highlights advances in current and emerging “hot” targets and technologies, as well as target validation strategies for the discovery and development of novel therapeutic agents, ranging from biologics to small molecules.
