Hosted by LabRoots, BioProcessing 2020 Returns April 8th to Highlight Innovations in Cell and Gene Therapies, Process Characterization and Biomanufacturing

Register for this free one-day event exploring upstream and downstream processing, analytical development and quality, and formulation and stability with new educational sessions

LabRoots, the leading scientific social networking website, offering premier, interactive virtual events and webinars, is pleased to announce its BioProcessing Virtual Eventscheduled on April 8th, 2020, addressing current challenges and tomorrow’s advances and cutting-edge topics in the evolving bioprocessing industry.

More than 11,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, technologists from industry, and academia will come together globally to focus on new solutions to maximize quality, risk management, and cost-efficiency in the biologics manufacturing process. This unique forum will reveal the latest advancements in cell-gene therapies and shared insights in the most effective manufacturing methods.

Distinguished by its high-caliber scientific content, LabRoots’ BioProcessing program was organized with an eye on integrating manufacturing and delivery into healthcare, getting up close with technologies for efficient upstream and downstream processes, and keeping abreast of the ever-changing landscape of cell and gene therapies.

This year’s sessions feature a notable lineup of recognized leaders who will examine how preclinical and clinical research in gene therapy is leading to strong advances and clinical approvals, improvements in delivery technologies, such as engineered AAV delivery vectors to fully unlock the potential of genome editing and gene therapy, hybrid modeling and intensified DoE (design of experiments) enabling faster process development, soft sensors and model predictive control, and droplet digital PCR will be described in application to different genomic assays applied in gene therapy.

Among these highlights, Dr. Robert Kruse a resident physician at John Hopkins, will deliver a keynote address explaining new paradigms in moving toward Point-of-Care Cell Therapy Services in the hospital. Following, a Case Study: from Ligand discovery to developing a purification platform and delivering GMP-ready affinity chromatography columns will be shared by Buzz Lobbezoo, Product Support and Development Manager at Astrea Bioseparations, Ltd.
