Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual

Optimizing Expression Platforms

January 23-24, 2020

Part of the Biotherapeutic Expression & Production pipeline


The utilization of engineered therapeutic proteins for basic research, clinical diagnostics, and therapy continues to expand. Consequently, protein expression laboratory managers and researchers face challenges for efficient expression, production, and purification even while improving quantity and quality, plus minimizing time and cost. Transient protein production (TPP) has the advantage of speed and limited risk, while stable transfection – the longer and more complex process – has the advantage of being able to produce long-term expression of the biotherapeutic of interest. The rapidly increasing need for recombinant proteins necessitates further improvements in both technologies.

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual Optimizing Expression Platforms conference convenes protein expression specialists who share experiences from their expression and production laboratories with process and platform differences, tradeoffs, and improvements for producing recombinant proteins.
