Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 2nd Annual 

Characterization of Biotherapeutics 
Optimization * Comparability * Immunogenicity 

April 1-2, 2015


As new product formats such as antibody-drug conjugates, multi-specifics and fusion proteins progress through development, and regulatory agencies increasingly demand for higher accuracy and predictability, there is an urgent need for better and faster characterization tools and strategies that will better inform companies of the structure, function and mechanisms of these new biotherapeutics.

CHI’s Analytical Characterization of Biotherapeutics conference highlights the latest tools and techniques in characterizing and optimizing novel formats, comparing biosimilars with originators, reduce aggregates and particles, and predict immunogenicity propensity and impact.

We invite presentation proposals on the following preliminary topics: 

  • Optimizing structural and biophysical properties
  • Characterizing antibody-antigen binding
  • Glycoprofiling for heterogeneity and site occupancy
  • Study of PTMs including glycosylation and phosphorylation
  • Assessing higher-order structure in comparability studies
  • Biophysical evaluation of proteins at high concentrations
  • Bioassays and molecular assessment of developability
  • Characterization of next generation antibodies and novel formats
  • Characterization of aggregates, particulates, impurities and host cell proteins
  • Designing immunogenicity studies during clinical trials
  • Biosimilar characterization and comparability assessments

Deadline for submission: September 12, 2014 

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.
