Labroots Announces 4th Annual Virtual Bioprocessing Event, Held April 6, 2022

Bioprocesses, April 6, 2022

Labroots, the leading scientific social networking website, providing premier virtual events and interactive webinars to the scientific community, is pleased to announce, now in its 4th year, Bioprocessing 2022, scheduled for April 6.

Over ten presentations comprise the scientific agenda sharing advances and solutions to challenges in the production of complex biologics facing industry today and innovations in all aspects of cell culture optimization and cell line development, modeling and simulation, continuous bioprocessing, downstream processing, gene therapy manufacturing, process characterization, digital biomanufacturing, etc.

This free online event brings together thousands of the world’s leading scientists, researchers, engineers and industry professionals working in biopharmaceutical development and production to learn how to improve process efficiency and product quality in all phases of bioprocessing.

Conference highlights include two keynote addresses that kick off the day:

  • Keynote presentation titled “A generic manufacturing platform for downstream processing on non-mab proteins” presented by Dr. Alois Jungbauer, Professor, Department of Biotechnology, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Institute of Science and bioprocess engineering.
  • Keynote presentation titled “Continuous Bioprocessing – New Challenges and Opportunities for Membrane Technology” given by Dr. Andrew L. Zydney, Bayard D. Kunkle Chair and Professor of Chemical Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Zydney will explain the benefits of implementing continuous bioprocessing and identify opportunities for using countercurrent staging to improve the performance of downstream processes.

Dr. Andrew Zydney, Bayard D. Kunkle Chair and Professor of Chemical Engineering at Penn State University, and keynote speaker for the Continuous Bioprocessing session, said: “The biopharmaceutical industry is seriously exploring the opportunities that operations However, the continuous development of bioprocesses requires significant rethinking of the technologies currently used for downstream batch processing. This creates exciting opportunities for the development of new technology platforms specifically designed to exploit the unique characteristics of continuous processes.

Following this, a joint panel presentation titled “An Overview of Gene Therapy Manufacturing: Development Through Commercial Production” will be presented by Dr. Kevin G. McGarry, Jr., Director, Analytical Development, and Dr. Samir Acharya, Associate Director, Process Development, at Andelyn Biosciences. Together they will explain the steps involved in bringing a gene therapy product to the clinic and discuss development and manufacturing processes, testing and potential challenges.

Additionally, attendees will learn from prominent speakers on topics such as the overall purpose of process modeling, the benefit of having a scaling method based on first physical principles, an introduction to the development of next-generation bioanalysis, the benefits of using micro-scale tools that mimic large-scale conditions to optimize a microbial cell factory, the potential for model-assisted process design for pharmaceutical production and the critical role cell culture media play in upstream processing.

Produced on Labroot’s robust platform, while connecting to all desktop and mobile devices, the interactive environment provides a lobby with ranking and gamification, an auditorium featuring live video webcasts with lively discussions during presentations scheduled events, a display room to explore data and engage in live chats, an exhibit hall, and a networking lounge including a social media wall and photo booth, providing attendees with an enriched learning experience .

Labroots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS PACE program. By attending this event, one continuing education credit (1 per presentation) can be earned for a maximum of 35 credits.
