Goal and purpose

The goal of this scientific conference has not changed since the first meeting in 2010: to provide a leading forum for discussion and exchange of ideas surrounding the challenges and benefits of employing high-throughput techniques in the development of production processes for biological products.

For 2019, we will build on the previous meetings by including all functional areas from cell line development to formulation along with the analytics required for characterization. The application of HTPD to newer complex modalities continues to grow and strategies for overcoming emerging challenges will be profiled. The conference series will also feature the evolution of in-silico process development, mechanistic modeling, and other approaches to smart PD.

As with past events, HTPD 2019 will encourage networking and discussion between participants by providing a relaxed and informal format. A key part of the past meetings has been the poster session and this tradition will continue in Porto, providing a lively and highly interactive session. Additionally, we will host panel discussions to further provide opportunities for engagement and learning.
