History of the antibody workshops

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/Letter to the editorAcademic


At a critical period in the history of contemporary immunology, a handful of biochemists and fringe immunologists formed a group known as the Antibody Workshop. They had a major impact on the field by attracting molecular biologists who worked to reduce the study of cellular and organ level immunology to the molecular level. This had a dramatic effect on the field both conceptually and practically by providing the targets for clinical manipulation. The story of the origin and development of this group over time is recounted here.
