Cell Line Engineering: Improving The Host Cell
  • Investigate the host cell; how do you manipulate established cell lines to achieve maximum results?

  • Uncover the latest genetic engineering approaches, including CRISPR, and how they are being utilized.
  • Overcome bioprocessing bottlenecks by engineering new host and vector designs.

  • Consider impacts of cell line development on early and late stage bioprocessing.
Cell Line Development: Innovative Techniques & Technologies
  • Identify the latest clonal selection strategies to reduce timelines and achieve a high-quality product.

  • How are cutting-edge technologies being used in prediction, automation and high through-put approaches?

  • Discover the benefits of novel cell lines and discuss the pros and cons with CHO.
Coping with Clonal Stability & Complex Molecules
  • Get up to date on the legal and regulatory requirements when developing cell lines.

  • Achieve stable clones in an efficient and successful manner using genetic markers.

  • What are the best techniques for manufacturing complex molecules and biosimilars outside of traditional antibodies?

  • Are there constraints for commercial human therapeutic applications of gene editing, given the current IP landscape? 
  • How important is the outcome of the patent interference (UC – U of Vienna vs. “Boston Biotech Cluster”) to the future of gene editing?
  • Are there uncertainties in translational research and clinical trials due to broad exclusive licenses over CRISPR technologies IP? 
  • Is CRISPR genome-editing know-how going to define future applications and further developments of it as nonobvious? 
  • Will commercial sublicenses be needed for follow-on applications of CRISPRC as technology? If so, when is this going to happen?
