Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 8th Annual
Optimizing Biologics Formulation Development
Formulation Strategies for Different Stages of Development, New Product Formats,
Device/Delivery Systems and Emerging Analytical Methods

January 18-19, 2016

Each year, the PepTalk Optimizing Biologics Formulation Development meeting brings together an international audience of analytical and formulation scientists from leading industry companies to hear solutions to the most significant challenges in their field. For 2016, the conference focuses on formulation strategies in early and pre-commercial development, the challenges of new molecule and product formats, emerging technologies to support the speed and quality of formulation development, formulation issues for device and packaging systems and problem solving for the challenges in the day-to-day work of protein formulators.            

This important annual congress kicks off the weeklong PepTalk Formulation & Stability pipeline, which also includes separate meetings on Lyophilization and Emerging Drying Technologies and Protein Aggregation and Emerging Analytical Tools. By attending, you may also participate in the full set of six PepTalk pipelines, including full weeklong sets of meetings on analytics and impurities, process technologies, protein engineering, antibody therapeutics and more.

We invite presentation proposals on the following preliminary topics: 

  • Early stage formulation strategies and technologies
  • Excipient, buffer and adjuvant interactions
  • Formulation challenges for antibody-drug conjugates
  • Formulation development for device and packaging systems
  • Formulation for emerging delivery methods and routes of administration
  • Formulation for protein vaccines
  • Formulation for emerging molecule and product formats
  • Late clinical and commercial stage formulation challenges
  • New analytical methods, technologies and approaches impacting the formulation function
  • Optimizing forced degradation studies
  • Problem solving for drug substance and drug product formulations
  • Regulatory issues impacting formulation development

Deadline for submission: June 17, 2015 

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference will be given to abstracts from those within pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, regulators and those from academic centers. Additionally, as per CHI policy, a select number of vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
