Biophysical Methods

Characterizing and Optimizing the Physical Properties of Biotherapeutics

May 3-4, 2022

 

Biophysical analytical methods are now playing an increasingly important role in the discovery and development of next-generation biotherapeutics, and these tools are applied for developability evaluation, structural characterization, understanding aggregation and as important inputs at different stages of R&D. New informatics and instruments are increasingly allowing these methods to be used in a quantitative, rather than qualitative way – and biophysical studies now play a key role in regulatory filings. The PEGS Biophysical Methods conference brings together an international audience of protein scientists and analytical specialists to explore the latest technologies and methods for problem solving in this dynamic field.

 

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:

 

Aggregation and Particle Characterization

  • Characterization of mRNA and lipid nanoparticles
  • Microfluidics for particle characterization
  • New understandings of aggregation phenomena

 

Digital Methods in Biophysical Analysis

  • Image recognition
  • High-throughput analytics to build predictive algorithms
  • Molecular dynamics simulations

 

Emerging Technologies

  • Low-volume flow imaging
  • Machine learning for image recognition and analysis
  • Multi-parameter screening

 

Essential Biophysical Studies

  • Polysorbate quantification
  • Thermal and colloidal stability assessment
  • Viscosity analysis for high-concentration proteins

 

Mass Spectrometry

  • Applications of ion mobility MS in biophysical analysis
  • MS quantitation of host cell proteins
  • New MS technologies, software and workflows

 

Structural Analysis

  • Alphafold/Rosettafold for structure prediction
  • Applications of Cryo-EM in biophysical analysis
  • New technologies for HOS characterization

 

The deadline for priority consideration is October 22, 2021.

 

All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
