Event Details

Downstream process development of next generation challenging proteins

GlaxoSmithKline, Stevenage

Tuesday 30 January 2018

Reducing the cost of goods and increasing productivity associated with downstream purification are key aims across the biopharmaceutical industry. These demands on new processes are heightened in light of the challenges associated with purification of novel next-generation proteins.

 In response to these pressures, industry has focused its efforts into three key areas; process intensification using conventional technologies and unit operations, the adoption of high throughput process development (HTPD) techniques and the deployment of novel bioseparation systems. Against a backdrop of both established modalities as well as more novel molecular formats, talks from industry leaders and academics will explore these themes and how using these strategies have enabled the challenges of speed and cost of development to be addressed. This event will therefore cover how the current state of downstream purification technologies are being adapted and how new technologies are being adopted, to address both existing and future demands of bioprocessing.

KTN are holding this event, in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline and GE Life Sciences, on Tuesday 30 January 2018. Strategically located at the GSK Medicines Research Centre in Stevenage, UK, the event will provide valuable opportunities to network with peers, academics and key decision makers in the bioprocess field. 

We are expecting about 90 delegates on the day from the wider sector. Thanks to the generosity of our partners, KTN is able to deliver this meeting as a free event for the community.

This one day event aligns with the KTN’s activities in medicines bioprocessing and manufacturing, as well as the Medicines Manufacturing Industry Partnership (MMIP).

Call for posters - there will be a chance for researchers to present posters. Please note your interest on registration and use the free text box to indicate title and short descriptor.

*Please note, places for this event are limited and if the meeting is oversubscribed, places will be prioritised for those who are technical practitioners in the sector.


In partnership with:         GE             GSK
