Developing and Validating Bioassays to Advance the Development of Biotherapeutics

March 21, 2012 @ 1:28 pm - 5:28 pm EDT

 

ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE:
Bioassays play a vital role in the characterization, comparability, stability and potency testing of large molecule therapeutics. The inaugural Biossays for Biologics will bring together key individuals from across CMC, Bioanalytical Sciences, and Bioprocessing to share strategies and methods for developing and validating bioassays to advance the development of biotherapeutics.

CHI's Inaugural
Bioassays for Biologics
March 21 - 22 |  Intercontinental Harbor Court | Baltimore, Maryland Healthtech.com/Bioassays
