Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 9th Annual

Accelerating Analytical Development

Optimizing the Speed and Efficiency of Key Analytical Steps in Biotherapeutic Development

August 17-18, 2022


Industry analytical groups are facing increased pressure to deliver key studies faster than ever before – and at lower costs. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 9th Annual Accelerating Analytical Development conference offers a best practices forum in which industry scientists and managers can exchange ideas on strategies, new technologies, and the integration of analytical methods in support of these goals. The conference will address the most important roles of the analytical function from early development through release testing and provide insights on how different organizations are addressing these challenges.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:



  • Best practices for automated sample preparation
  • Emerging methods for multiplexing and miniaturizing assays
  • Integration of robotic liquid handlers in upstream and downstream process analytics


Digital Methods in Analytical Development

  • Best practices for implementing big data initiatives in analytical functions
  • Case studies of machine learning applications for key analytical studies
  • Predictive modeling for development and CQAs


Platforms and Workflows

  • Adapting analytical platforms to new modalities
  • Analytical support for accelerated development timelines
  • Risk assessment for different testing strategies


Problems and Solutions

  • Adapting accelerated analytical packages to international regulatory agencies
  • Optimizing and accelerating chemical stability studies
  • Transitioning and building analytical functions to support cell and gene therapies


Process Characterization & Control

  • Applications of MAM methods in characterization, development, and release
  • Criticality assessment and control of residual impurities
  • Emerging methods and technologies for process analytical technology (PAT)
  • Alternatives to traditional western blot analysis
  • Discovery stage methods to improve quality of candidate selections
  • Improving the accessibility of MS methods
  • Low volume methods for biophysical characterization
  • Multiplexing potency assays
  • Super resolution microscopy


The deadline for priority consideration is February 4, 2022.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 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.
