Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Seventh Annual

Optimizing Biologics Formulation and Stability  

New Tools, Technologies, Case Studies, and Research Updates on Development of Novel Biologics

August 14-15, 2019


The seventh annual Optimizing Biologics Formulation and Stability conference will cover the 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 We are seeking case studies, especially unpublished and innovative work on co-formulation, formulation of novel biologics, development and delivery of high-concentration protein formulations, effective scale up strategies, excipient induced instability, process challenges, fill finish challenges, and predictive tools for rapid formulation and stability screening.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Formulation and manufacturability of ADCs, bispecifics other novel biologics formats, peptides, vaccines, cell-based and gene therapy
  • 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
  • High concentration protein formulations development: mechanism, fill finish issues, managing viscosity and aggregation, devices, prediction, measurement of aggregation, viscosity and solubility
  • Low concentration formulations 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 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.
