Meeting Demand for Biologics: The Bioprocessing Summit Explores Today’s Challenges and Tomorrow’s Advances

From Digital Biomanufacturing to mAb Production, Keynoters to Share
Insights During August 12-16, 2019 Conference in Boston

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BPSMT–To meet exploding demand for biological drugs that can cure fatal
diseases, counter chemical threats, or fight cancer, the bioprocessing
industry is evolving to “digital biomanufacturing”— capitalizing on
innovations like predictive analytics to fast track their protein-based
therapies.

From August 12-16, 2019, more than 1,500 scientists, engineers and
leaders from this international community will unite at The
Bioprocessing Summit in Boston to explore the transformation ahead. They
will also share new solutions to the challenges they encounter today, as
they work to maximize quality, safety and cost-efficiency in the
biologics manufacturing process.

“Distinguished by its high-caliber scientific content, the eleventh
annual Bioprocessing Summit will offer abundant opportunities to access
new data, case studies, technologies and techniques, and initiate
valuable collaborations,” said Mary Ruberry, Senior Conference Director,
Cambridge Healthtech Institute, which produces this event.

This year’s Plenary
