Join us in Boston this September to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of IBC’s “BioProcess International™ Conference and Exhibition,” a milestone event providing the tools and knowledge you need to meet the demands of increasingly diverse product portfolios in an evolving biomanufacturing landscape.



The inaugural BPI Conference in 2004 gave the industry’s an opportunity to exchange experiences and knowledge to optimize manufacturing processes and accelerate programs. Fast-forward 10 years, and this has become the industry meetingplace for product and process development and biomanufacturing scientists and executives to share technical, scientific, and strategic solutions across all phases of bioprocess development.

IBC Life Sciences and its colleagues at BioProcess International magazine are proud to announce this year’s program. This September will be your opportunity to join more than 1,400 colleagues in Boston to find superior tools and practical knowledge to help you accelerate your bioprocess development efforts. This page offers a sample of what you will learn by attending.

Preconference Symposia

  • Antibody–Drug Conjugates — Current Best Practice and Considerations for Processes and Facilities

  • Knowledge and Data Management for Process Development and Manufacturing

  • Biological Assay Development

  • Achieving Supply Chain Transparency for Raw Materials

  • Product- and Process-Related Variants and Impurities

Conference Tracks

Hear exclusive case studies and unpublished data in five conference tracks:

  • Upstream strategies for flocculation and perfusion processes, maximizing throughput, and production of new modalities

  • Downstream techniques for fully disposable clarification, nonaffinity-based purification, mixed-mode chromatography, and continuous processing

  • Strategies for achieving and delivering stable and high-concentration protein formulations

  • Analytical methods for determining comparability/similarity and quality approaches for improved product and process control

  • Manufacturing strategies to improve efficiency and capacity use and lessons learned from flexible facility designs and single-use implementation.


  • “Producing High-Quality, Low-Cost Biotherapeutics in the Century of Biology,” by James Thomas (Amgen, Inc.)

  • “Transforming the Development of Biotechnology Drugs for the 21st Century: A CEO’s Perspective from a Small Biotech Company,” by Abbie Celniker (Eleven Biotherapeutics)

  • “Biologics Manufacturing in a Rapidly Changing Environment,” by Peter Moesta (Bristol-Myers Squibb)

  • “Eliminating Interfaces: Process Development Lessons from Aggressive Platform Development,” by Lars Pampel (Novartis)

  • “A Systems Approach to Managing Biomanufacturing Complexity: Genzyme’s Allston Plant Case Study,” by Sandra Poole (Genzyme)

Interactive Discussions

Participate in provocative discussions designed for audience interaction:

  • Maximizing Limited Bandwidth for Beta Testing of New Technologies

  • Product Attribute Control — A Future Vision for Protein Process Development

  • Harmonization of Single-Use Systems: Extractables and Leachables

  • What Does Robust Supply Chain Transparency Look Like?

  • Capture Options in Antibody Purification — Current Limitations, Emerging Options, and Obstacles to Change
