During the inaugural meeting held in August 2017, participants identified hurdles in advancing biomanufacturing products to the clinic. As a result, the theme of the 2018 conference is “Creating Value through Innovation in the Biomanufacturing Industry”. This conference will draw upon past successes in the established protein and small molecule manufacturing fields to inform the emerging field of Advanced Biomanufacturing, in which cell manufacturing and tissue fabrication pose significant challenges to the future progress of biomanufacturing.
Both poster and oral presentations will be selected from the pool of abstracts. Topics include: enabling technologies for advanced biomanufacturing, material and cell sourcing, cell manufacturing, tissue biofabrication, automated cell manufacturing and tissue biofabrication processes, product validation, regulation, and QA/QC as well as workforce training. The program includes keynote lectures delivered by leaders from industry and academia, panel discussions and exhibition sessions with pharma and biotech companies. In addition, we are pleased to present you with short talks selected from an outstanding pool of abstracts made up of exceptional junior principal investigators selected after an extremely competitive review. We would be delighted to have you present at the conference and share your vision on the field.
