Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual
Optimizing Cell Line Development
Enhancing Expression
August 6-7, 2015
Part of CHI's 7th Annual The Bioprocessing Summit

August 3-7, 2015 | Westin Copley Place Hotel | Boston, Massachusetts


The “Optimizing Cell Line Development” meeting features experts sharing their case studies and anecdotes that illustrate the strategies they use to reach enhanced expression and lower costs. Their research and experiences provide meaningful insights into how to best select cell lines and hosts, and develop high-producers into late-stage production. Gaining a greater understanding of cells through sequencing and the omics sciences will also be addressed, including the CHO genome research, metabolomics, assays, and QPCR. In addition, challenges for introducing new technologies will be discussed, along with an overview of industrial trends and regulatory perspectives.

Proposed presentations should focus on case studies and lessons learned about strategies for cell line development.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Cell line selection & optimization
  • Cell line attributes
  • High producer cell lines / industrial use
  • Regulatory perspectives on new technologies
  • Omics technologies
  • Metabolomics
  • Hurdles for introducing new technologies
  • Sequencing the CHO genome
  • Gene expression / expression levels
  • Transcriptomic data
  • Predictive modeling
  • Identifying the best hosts
  • Understanding hosts to control phenotypes
  • Engineering hosts
  • Lactate metabolism
  • Designing a cell line for biosimilars
  • Arrays / Microarrays
  • QPCR
  • Process conditions
  • Process robustness
  • Cell growth
  • Stability
  • Productivity
  • Quality
  • Scalability
  • Cell line serviceability through late-stage product development
  • Trends in industrial cell line development
  • Protocols & Case Studies

Cell Line Development 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 January 30, 2015.

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.
