Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Ninth Annual
Protein Purification and Recovery
Streamlining Processes with Innovative Technologies
January 10-11, 2017 | Hilton San Diego Bayfront | San Diego, CA


Protein purification is the most costly and time-consuming process in the manufacture of proteins. Challenges are multiplied when purifying complex molecules, such as membrane proteins, bispecifics and antibody-drug conjugates. This leading Protein Purification and Recovery meeting explores how experts are optimizing processes to achieve pure protein while curtailing cost and time. Along with innovating “traditional” technologies such as Protein A and chromatography, leaders also address alternatives and breakthroughs, such as continuous processing.

We invite presentation proposals on the following preliminary topics:

  • Case studies
  • Process development & optimization
  • Chromatography
  • Protein A
  • Non-Protein A alternatives
  • Membrane proteins
  • Multispecific antibodies / bispecifics
  • Antibody-drug conjugates
  • Purifying antibodies
  • Identifying & overcoming aggregation
  • Purifying proteins at varying scale
  • Purifying proteins in different systems (mammalian, E. coli, baculovirus)
  • Integrating technologies
  • Affinity tags
  • Resin technologies
  • Analytical methods

Please click here to submit a speaking proposal for review.

Deadline for submission: May 27, 2016

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.
