Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural

Formulation, Stability & Aggregation

Improving and Accelerating Protein Production Processes

March 25-26, 2020


This inaugural conference brings together leading industry experts to advance formulation, stability and aggregation studies in the production of traditional and novel biotherapeutics. Exploring the latest methods, technologies and solutions being employed to overcome your most pressing challenges. We invite you to join us in Barcelona to share best practices with like-minded peers.
