Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual

Overcoming Formulation Challenges for Biopharmaceuticals Development

Hot topics, Platform Technologies, Case Studies and Highlights from Industry

August 13-14, 2018

The popular sixth annual Overcoming Formulation Challenges for Biopharmaceuticals Development conference will cover latest trends and challenges in formulations development of novel biologic formats, process optimization, manufacturing, and device and packaging considerations for existing and emerging protein therapeutics. We are seeking case studies, especially unpublished and innovative work on co-formulation, formulation of novel biologics, effective scale up strategies, excipient induced instability, process challenges, fill finish challenges, and predictive tool for rapid formulation and stability screening.

Topics covered will include, but are not limited to:

  • Formulation and manufacturability of novel biologics formats, peptides, vaccines etc.
  • Formulation issues for cell-based and gene therapy
  • Translation of platform technologies for bispecifics and other novel formats
  • Co-formulations and combination products
  • Formulation approach to control protein aggregation and degradation
  • Excipient induced protein degradation and aggregation, use of novel excipients and regulatory considerations
  • Low concentration formulations
  • Special considerations for biophysical analysis in formulation development
  • Product characterization, comparability and correlation between early development studies and late stage development studies
  • Predictive and high-throughput screening methods, forced degradation studies and new formulation technologies, DOE in formulation screening
  • New research and case studies for development of challenging lyophilization processes, fill finish, scale up, technology transfer and manufacturing processes
  • Product presentation, container closure and device engineering and its impact on formulation development and downstream manufacturing

If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.

The deadline for priority consideration is February 2, 2018.

All proposals are subject to review by session chairmen and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute& policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
