Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 5th Annual

Advances in Purification & Recovery

Intensifying and Optimizing Downstream Process

August 14-15, 2019

New and emerging molecules coming down the pipeline brings a new set of challenges to the downstream team. Downstream scientists are thus increasingly looking to process intensification and optimization methods, automation, mechanistic modeling and high throughput processes to meet the challenges of higher upstream titers and complex molecules while improving products and reducing cost.

CHI’s 5th Annual Advances in Purification & Recovery invites scientists to share their pursuit of new materials such as custom affinity resins and novel membranes, or new technologies such as automation, predictive modeling and intensification methods, to develop next-generation processes and products.


Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Downstream processing of novel modalities and new expression systems
  • Evolution of existing strategies and systems to next-generation downstream processes
  • New/custom affinity resins
  • Novel membrane technologies/chromatographic media
  • Process intensification and optimization – minimizing, concentrating, simplifying
  • Continuous vs intensified processing
  • Removal of impurities and HCPs by QbD and process design
  • Automation, predictive modeling and high throughput process to transform downstream processes


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 11, 2019.

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.
