Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 15th Annual

Optimizing Cell Culture Technology

Enhancing Knowledge for Growing Cells

August  12-13 , 2019


“Optimizing Cell Culture Technology” has long been considered the ‘must attend’ international conference focused solely on culturing cells.  This leading meeting explores today’s evolving strategies and technologies for improving mammalian cell cultivation, including genome engineering, CRISPR, modeling and computational insights and analysis in the continuing efforts to improve yield.  The conference will include a session focused on culturing CHO cells (Chinese Hamster Ovary), as well as discussions of breakthrough technologies and analytical approaches that support the tasks at hand and lead to greater productivity. Industry experts provide insights into optimizing conditions as well as cell biology in the effort to improve yield, while also addressing the future of cell culture in an expanding market where demand continues to increase.
