Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 11th Annual

Optimizing Bioassays for Biologics

Demonstrating Successful Bioassay Development in an Era of Emerging Modalities

October 4-5, 2023


New therapeutic modalities, including cell and gene therapies, immunotherapies, and antibody therapies, continue to push the need for better testing and improved bioassay development. Many of these formats present new challenges. Now in our 11th year, CHI’s Optimizing Bioassays for Biologics Conference brings together speakers from industry and academia working in bioassay development, bioprocessing, and bioanalytical. This forum educates new and up-and-coming scientists entering the field by showcasing cutting-edge case studies and discussing how agencies in the US and in Europe view testing with novel modalities. Join us this October to hear how our expert speakers overcome the most common challenges in biological assay development, validation, transfer, and maintenance.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Lifecycle management of biologics and new drug formats
  • Potency assay development
  • New modalities including cell and gene therapies, immunotherapies, oncolytic virus therapies, and antibodies
  • Developing and bridging reference standards
  • Regulatory considerations
  • Using automation in bioassays: When, where, and how to integrate
  • Designing assays to fit into a clinical workflow
  • In vitro assays for characterization
  • Bioassay control and maintenance
  • Bioassay Quality-by-Design (QbD)
  • Bioassays to understand a drug's Mechanism-of-Action (MoA)
  • Designing bioassays for biologics with multiple mechanisms-of-action
  • Assay bridging and analytical bridging
  • New bioassay technologies to increase speed and sensitivity


The deadline for priority consideration is April 3, 2023.


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.
