Downstream process development of next generation challenging proteins
Reducing the cost of goods and increasing productivity associated with downstream purification are key aims across the biopharmaceutical industry. These demands on new processes are heightened in light of the challenges associated with purification of novel next-generation proteins.
The Knowledge Transfer Network is holding an event, in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline and GE Life Sciences, on Tuesday 30 January 2018. The venue is GlaxoSmithKline, Gunnels Wood Road, SG1 2NY, Stevenage. Strategically located at the GSK Medicines Research Centre, the event will provide valuable opportunities to network with peers, academics and key decision makers in the bioprocess field.
In response to increased pressures, industry has focused its efforts into three key areas: process intensification using conventional technologies and unit operations, adoption of high throughput process development (HTPD) techniques, and deployment of novel bioseparation systems.
Against a backdrop of both established modalities as well as more novel molecular formats, talks from industry leaders and academics will explore these themes, and how using these strategies has enabled the challenges of speed and cost of development to be addressed. This event will therefore cover how the current state of downstream purification technologies is being adapted and how new technologies are being adopted, to address both existing and future demands of bioprocessing.
We are expecting about 90 delegates on the day from the wider sector. Thanks to the generosity of our partners, KTN is able to deliver this meeting as a free event for the community.
Call for posters – there will be a chance for researchers to present posters. Please note your interest on registration, and use the free text box to indicate title and short description.
*Please note, places for this event are limited and if the meeting is oversubscribed, places will be prioritised for those who are technical practitioners in the sector.
