HCP Conferences

An academic conference or symposium is the stage for researchers to present and discuss their work. Together with academic or scientific journals, conferences provide an important channel for exchange of information between researchers. Knowledge conferences help to create a dialogue and participation between research scholars, students, libraries, educational institutions, research centers and the industry on a global level.

Following table compiles conferences and workshops that have been the premier forum on the latest advances in production of biotherapeutics and common obstacles in process development with focus on host cell protein impurities.

List of conferences and workshops 2019

NameDateLocationDescription
14th World Congress on
Pharmacology and Drug Safety
Dec 02-03, 2019Nice, FranceThe meeting aims to explore novel approaches in pharmacology, Drug Safety Systems and their application in the development of pharmaceutical and healthcare products. The conference program includes prompt keynote presentations, oral talks, poster presentations and exhibitions. It is an ideal platform for researchers, scientists and, delegates to share experience, foster collaborations across industry and academia, and evaluate emerging technologies across the globe.
Host Cell Proteins
Detection, Analysis and Control
Aug 12 - 13, 2019Boston, USAControlling process-related impurities such as host cell proteins (HCPs) is a critical part of bioprocessing. Analytical methods are available but coverage and specificity is limited. Moreover, the emergence of new techniques, such as mass spectrometry, has further compounded these limitations with regulators now pressing companies for more HCP data.
Pharmaceutical GMP, GCP & Regulatory AffairsAug 02-03, 2019Chicago, USA
Clinical Trials 2019 is a two-day program which includes most recent techniques, developments, novel strategies and various disciplines involved in drug discovery, clinical research, patient centricity, clinical site & supply management, medical imaging, data management and outsourcing in clinical trials. It will educate healthcare and clinical researcher professionals about design, operation, organizing, research computing, regulatory aspects and reporting of clinical trials. It also promotes better understanding by the general public about the importance of clinical trials in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
8th International Conference on Clinical Trials
Jul 19-20, 2019 Atlanta, USA
2nd International Conference on Biological & Pharmaceutical SciencesJul 12-13, 2019Yokohoma, JapanPharmaceutical Drug development & Drug expansion is the procedure of creating a new pharmaceutical drug to the global market once a lead compound has been found through the procedure of drug discovery. It includes pre-clinical research on microorganisms and animals, filing for regulatory status, such as via the United States Food and Drug Administration for an investigational new drug to initiate clinical trials on humans, and may include the step of obtaining regulatory approval with a new drug application to market the drug.
