In the era of precision medicine, immuno-peptidomics is evolving into a pivotal component for therapeutic target identification. This webinar delves into how mass-spectrometry-based immuno-peptidomics is reshaping the way we approach drug discovery.

With the expert insights of our special guest, Martin Klatt, MD, we will l explore the dynamic field of immuno-peptidomics and discuss novel ways to navigate its challenges.

In this session, we will introduce ARDisplay, a platform designed to augment the current capabilities in immuno-peptidomics. By harnessing advanced computational techniques, ARDisplay offers innovative solutions to the challenges inherent in identifying and analyzing therapeutic targets. We demonstrate the platform's effectiveness with a case study, using Dr. Klatt’s data as a practical example, explaining why we believe the application of AI algorithms is pivotal in this context.

Whether you are based in industry, aiming to streamline your drug discovery process or an academic interested in the vast possibilities of immuno-peptidomics, this webinar will equip you with essential insights into the latest developments in the field.


Meet our speakers:

Martin Klatt, M.D.
Clinical Scientist and Jr. Group Leader at Charité

Dr. Martin Klatt is a clinician, a scientist and a junior group leader at the Medical Department, Division of Hematology, Oncology and Tumor Immunology at Charité Universitätsmedizin in Berlin.

He received his Doctoral degree from the University of Tübingen (Germany) for his work in the Lab of Hans-Georg Rammensee. He held a postdoctoral position at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (New York City) after which he returned to Germany and joined Charité University. He is an author and co-author of over 30 publications in renowned peer-reviewed scientific journals and specializes in translational immuno-peptidomics with a focus on the major histocompatibility complexes (MHCs) and MHC-presented peptides. He is also interested in the interaction of T cells with pMHC complexes and how these interactions influence T cell activation.

Together with his research team, he utilizes tandem mass-spectrometry to define ideal targets for T cell-based therapies to design tumor-specific TCR T cells, as well as, TCRm CAR T cells. Recently, his research group was able to successfully design the NDC80-specific TCRm CAR T cells and together with Christopher Klebanoff’s group he defines and targets public neoepitopes derived from PIK3CA, KRAS, NRAS and more undisclosed targets.

Rafał Szatanek, Ph.D.
Senior Scientist, Immunology
Dr. Rafał Szatanek is a senior immunologist at the R&D Immunology Unit at Ardigen. He attained his Ph.D. from the Jagiellonian University Medical College in Kraków, Poland, and received his prior education at the University of Connecticut in the US. 

With more than 20 years of research and diagnostic experience, he has gained extensive knowledge in tumor biology and MHC signaling. His areas of expertise include tumor-immune cell interactions, intracellular communication via extracellular vesicles and allogeneic transplantation. He has authored and co-authored over 40 scientific publications including book chapters and scripts covering his areas of specialization. 

At Ardigen, he is a member of the Immuno-peptidomics group where he uses his scientific experience to support the creation of AI technologies to develop new approaches for cancer treatment.

Piotr Skoczylas
Data Scientist, Immunology

Piotr Skoczylas has 5 years of experience in Life Science projects incorporating AI solutions into bioinformatic pipelines, incl. academic and commercial collaborations. He graduated with a Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematics from the Jagiellonian University. At Ardigen, he works as a Data Scientist specializing in Immuno-peptidomics, which includes being the Key Offering Manager of products such as ARDentify and ARDisplay - platforms for enhanced target identification and prediction of peptide presentation via HLA molecules.

Striving to have an actual impact on human health and quality of life, he represents a young generation of scientists who are aware of the insufficient progress that has been made toward effective cancer treatment. His multidisciplinary interests and strong theoretical foundations allowed him to become a core R&D team member and one of the main contributors to the development of a deep learning framework for modeling the antigen processing & presentation pathways. His expertise in applied mathematics enables him to extract valuable information from diverse biological data collections and apply this knowledge in machine learning techniques to seek new solutions within the immuno-oncology field.
