Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual

Cell Culture and Bioproduction  

Emerging Technologies, Improved Process Control, and New Opportunities

19-20 March 2024


Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual Cell Culture and Bioproduction conference examines technologies and strategies that lead to greater productivity for cultivating cells and scaling these systems for clinical and commercial production. The meeting includes coverage of new bioreactor technologies, the increasing role of computational modeling and AI/ML, new process control systems, and the application of these tools in the production of new biotherapeutic modalities.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


Evolution of Bioreactor Technologies

  • Continuous bleed recycling
  • Modeling to optimize perfusion process parameters
  • Next-generation single-use bioreactors
  • Novel bioreactor formats for niche applications


Process Characterisation and Control

  • Analytics and process controls for emerging modalities
  • Enabling PAT in continuous manufacturing
  • Modeling applications in PAT and QC


Implementing Computational Modeling and ML/AI in Upstream Processing

  • Collection and curation issues for new and legacy data
  • Development and implementation of digital twins and hybrid/mechanistic process models
  • End-to-End digital twins to allow real-time release
  • Regulatory perspectives on the implementation and use of AI in bioprocessing


Problems and Solutions

  • Implementing small-scale automation/robotization
  • Resolution of sustainability issues in upstream processing
  • Strategies for development, characterisation, and qualification of next-generation media


Upstream Processing for Emerging Modalities

  • Applications of synthetic biology to AAV manufacturing
  • GMP enzyme production for RNA vaccines and therapeutics 
  • Small-scale culture technologies to facilitate autologous CAR T production


The deadline for priority consideration is Friday 22 September.


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.
