May 10-12, 2017 – San Francisco, CA USA
In 2017, BEBPA will continue its tradition of hosting the premier scientific conference on the analysis of host cell protein (HCP) impurities in biopharmaceuticals. This conference brings together those who specialize in the core technology of immunoassays for HCPs with those whose expertise is in the emerging technology of LC-MS/MS for HCP analysis. The 2017 conference will return to the 2015 venue, the Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. The platform and poster sessions will occur over two days, May 11-12, 2017, and be proceeded on May 10 by one-day workshops on the core technologies: LC-MS/MS and Immunoassay development. These workshops will allow those new to either field to understand the underlying science, key vocabularies, and critical issues, so that they can optimally participate in the scientific discussions. This year will include a roundtable panel of experts discussing the setting of specifications for product purity.
Previous conferences have sold out, indicative of the high level of interest in this topic, and the many returning-registrants reflects the high level of satisfaction with the conference presentations. As with previous meetings, those giving platform presentations will have conference registration fees waived and those presenting posters will have a $50 reduction in registration fees.
