Analytical Characterization

As monocloncal antibodies give way to more complex, novel biomolecules in the pipeline, the role of analytical characterization becomes even more challenging. These new biomolecules may come with higher heterogeneity or higher toxicity, resulting in higher aggregation, less stability and greater immunogenicity risk. Coupled with the comparability challenges due to the molecule’s complexity, there is an urgent need for more state-of-the-art technologies and robust techniques to overcome these new hurdles. The Analytical Characterization and Comparability conference invites scientists from analytical, bioanalytical, discovery, formulation, PKPD, pharmaceutical development, processing etc. to join us and showcase the tools, techniques and approaches that are transforming the landscape of analytics today.

We are currently inviting presentation proposals on the following technologies, methods and approaches:

  • Characterization of Novel Biomolecules and Complex Formats
    • PD1, PDL1, ADCs, bispecifics, fusion proteins, scaffolds etc.
  • Characterizing Higher Order Structure and Protein Conformation
  • Forced Degradation Studies for Stability Testing and Prediction
  • Biophysical Characterization and Particle Analysis
    • Aggregates, visible and subvisible particles, submicrons
  • Biochemical Characterization
    • Oxidation, deamidation, excipient control
  • Advanced Techniques and Technologies for Characterization of PTMs, Glycosylation, Charge Heterogeneity and Sequence Variants
  • High Throughput Assays for Formulation Development
  • Charactering Proteins at High Concentrations
  • Analytical Comparability
    • Batch-to-batch comparison
    • Biosimilar to innovator drug comparison

Please click here to submit a speaking proposal for review.

Deadline for submission: September 11, 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.
