The Definitive Event Revolutionizing Cell Line Development through Disruptive Techniques and Innovative Science

Practical solutions to reduce development timelines, increase efficiencies, improve product quality, and realize greater productivity from new and established cell lines

Thank you to our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates for another great event! We look forward to seeing you June 2018 in San Francisco!

Where the bioproduct development community gathers to investigate:

The application of genome editing in cell line development
  • Discover how industry and academic teams are applying genome editing technologies to cell line engineering and realizing gains in efficiencies, product quality, cell line productivity and reduced timelines
  • Hear the implications of the recently resolved CRISPR USPTO interference proceeding from intellectual-property specialist Catherine Coombes
Demonstration (and the importance) of clonality in cell lines - Hot Topic
  • Benchmark against industry teams as they share new and established approaches to demonstrating acceptable product clonality
  • Discuss the importance of clonality in ensuring product quality as part of a new interactive debate format for 2017
Developments and applications of high-throughput platforms for cell line selection
  • Hear how process automation and new technological advances are delivering definite results in high-throughput screening
  • Discover how the Technical University of Denmark’s Centre for Biosustainability have developed a high throughput genome engineering pipeline using CRISPR-Cas9 for CHO cell engineering
Ensuring Product Quality
  • Gain essential insight into how progress in host cell engineering, process control, ‘omics’ studies, clone selection, and host cell protein modulation are all contributing to improvements in product quality
  • Join over 250 peers from teams across industry and academia as they search for and discuss new approaches, technologies and science in cell line development aimed at improving product quality
Predictability of desirable cell lines early in development (via the use of –omics, next-generation sequencing and modelling)
  • Assess how advances in next-generation sequencing and ‘omics’ studies are contributing to the earlier prediction of desirable cell line characteristics and productivity
  • Hear how industry and academic teams are using next-generation sequencing to characterize clonal cell lines, identify engineering target sites and accelerate high-throughput screening
New and Extended Sessions for 2017!
  • Advances in genome editing technologies
  • Regulatory feedback and insight
  • Applications of next-generation sequencing (NGS)
  • Omics in cell line development
  • Cell line considerations for bioprocessing
  • Clonality and stability in cell line development
