Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Thirteenth Annual
Recombinant Protein Therapeutics
Fusion Proteins and Beyond
January 9-10, 2017 | Hilton San Diego Bayfront | San Diego, CA

By combining modular building blocks that can reach targets not accessible to antibodies, fusion protein therapeutics possess advantages over antibody-based therapies. Fusion proteins’ customizable functionality translate into lower patient dosing, reduced production costs, and improved product homogeneity. This Recombinant Protein Therapeutics conference explores the varying constructs and “designs” of fusion protein molecules, and discloses how these proteins are being engineered to form more efficacious therapeutics that offer specificity with enhanced stability and longer half-life. Experts present case studies from R&D through clinical data, and share the results they’ve achieved.

We invite presentation proposals on the following preliminary topics:

  • Molecule design
  • Linkers & conjugation
  • Fc engineering
  • Immunogenicity
  • Case studies
  • Stability
  • Antibody/Domain-based fusions
  • Pharmacological activity
  • Prolonging half-life
  • Assays
  • Binding
  • Delivery
  • Cytotoxic effects
  • Bifunctional fusion proteins
  • Chimeric proteins
  • Receptor traps
  • Preclinical development
  • Clinical data
  • Formulation technologies

Please click here to submit a speaking proposal for review.

Deadline for submission: May 27, 2016

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference will be given to abstracts from those within pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, regulators and those from academic centers. Additionally, as per CHI policy, a select number of 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.
