Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Tenth Annual
Difficult to Express Proteins
Taming “Finicky” Proteins through Innovation
Part of the 11th Annual PEGS: the essential protein engineering summit
May 4-5, 2015 | World Trade Center | Boston, Massachusetts


CHI’s Tenth Annual “Difficult to Express Proteins” conference will present the most up-to-date strategies and technologies for successfully expressing the proteins that keep researchers up at night. Whether because of folding problems, toxicity to hosts, purification issues or any of a host of other problems, these proteins resist standard expression and purification methods.

Methods and Technologies for overcoming Difficult to Express Proteins such as: 

  • Novel hosts and vectors
  • New hosts that can overcome expression issues
  • Methods to achieve expression in hosts formerly unable to do so
  • Strategies for improving the yields of proteins for structural studies
  • Chaperones, fusion proteins, and expression partners
  • Enhanced genes, engineered metabolic pathways, transcriptional engineering
  • Better, more capable expression assays and assay interpreters

Scientists who wish to present their knowledge and expertise to their colleagues are asked to click here to submit an abstract. Remember to specify the conference that you are interested in and please provide your full contact information.

The deadline for submission is October 3, 2014. 

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academia. Additionally, 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.
