Here’s what one of our delegate’s on-site said:

“CHI's Optimizing Bioassay for Biologics is one of the best bioassay venues in the biotech and biopharma industry. The conference provides very deep and broad scientific presentations, roundtable discussions, and excellent network opportunities for scientists, managers/directors, CROs, vendors and consultants.”
- Senior Group Leader, Bioassay Development, Hospira, a Pfizer Company
