Characterization for Novel Biotherapeutics

Exploring the Analytical Challenges of Emerging Modalities

May 2-3, 2022


As new product formats progress through development and into the regulatory process, the role of analytical characterization is taking on new meaning. Very new modalities present challenges to both analytical scientists and regulatory agencies alike, and this steep learning curve requires a near-constant cycle of adaptation and innovation. The PEGS Characterization for Novel Biotherapeutics conference explores the progression of analytical development for an exciting range of emerging modalities and offers a case study forum for those working in the field to share ideas, experiences and solutions that support the preclinical and clinical development of novel biotherapeutics.       


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


Novel Conjugates

  • Haptenated proteins
  • PEGylated proteins
  • Radioconjugates


Trispecific Antibodies

  • Developability analysis
  • Immunogenicity of synthetic linkers
  • Tracing instabilities and interactions


mRNA and siRNA

  • Characterization of lipid nanoparticles for drug delivery
  • mRNA vaccines for cancer immunotherapy
  • siRNA therapeutics


Cellular Therapies

  • Assays for critical quality attributes
  • Mass spectrometry applications
  • Predicting off-target side effects


Other Emerging Modalities

  • Adaptive T cell therapy
  • Combinations and co-formulations
  • Peptide therapeutics


Regulatory Challenges

  • Control strategies for novel therapeutics
  • Implementing QbD
  • Regulatory dialog for first in class therapeutics


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.
