Achieve High Productivities, Optimal Product Quality & Novel Platform Processes

Bioproduction Summit brings together industry leaders and biotech experts to discuss most challenging issues, ranging from achieving high productivities to scalable platform processes. In addition to popular therapeutic protein production theme, we will feature topics on tackling current manufacturing challenges in the exponentially growing field of AAV Gene and Cell Therapy. Lessons learned from the CHO cell culture will immensely help the field of AAV. Thus bringing experts from these two fields together will accelerate pace of innovations in the coming years.

 This conference provides an excellent venue for start ups as well as established biotech organization to collaborate, network and exhibit latest innovations in the field. We are delighted to invite you to present your latest research and technologies as speaker, poster presenter and exhibitor. For more details contact us
