The Bioprocessing Summit

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 12th Annual
Optimizing Cell Culture Technology
Enhancing Knowledge for Growing Cells
Part of CHI's 8th Annual The Bioprocessing Summit

August 15-16, 2016 | Westin Boston Waterfront | Boston, Massachusetts


The “Optimizing Cell Culture Technology” is the leading international conference focused solely on culturing cells. As industry demand increases, greater pressure is put on cell culture to meet growing needs. This meeting explores today’s evolving strategies and technologies for improving mammalian cell cultivation, including omics technologies and Synthetic Biology. Industry experts offer insights into optimizing conditions as well as cell biology in an effort to improve yield, while also addressing the future of cell culture in an expanding market where standards of quality continue to rise.

The agenda again features a session focused on CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary cells), as well as small-group breakout discussions that provide the opportunity to discuss important topics with peers from around the world.

Proposed presentations should focus on case studies and lessons learned about strategies for enhancing cell culture and reaching higher titers.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Optimizing cell culture conditions
  • Cell culture engineering
  • Process development
  • Metabolomics
  • Genome expression profiling
  • Cell culture analysis
  • Cellular responses to process conditions
  • Glycosylation
  • Cross-contamination
  • Primary cells
  • Cell growth
  • Productivity Increasing yield
  • Automation
  • Industrialization
  • Modeling
  • Fed-batch
  • Perfusion
  • 3-D cell culture
  • Increasing titers
  • How to treat mammalian cells
  • Technologies

Cell Culture experts who wish to present their knowledge and expertise to their colleagues are asked to click here to submit an abstract. Remember to specify the conference that you are interested in and please provide your full contact information.

Deadline for submission is February 15, 2016.


All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academia. Additionally, vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
