Recovery of Biological Products XVIII Conference



    The Recovery of Biological Products Conference Series, a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization, is the premier international forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in the operations used to recover biological products of therapeutic, diagnostic and industrial value to society. An invitation-only biennial event, the Conference Series provides delegates with a clear and comprehensive understanding of the status and direction of this fast-moving field.

    Sponsored by the American Chemical Society, Division of Biochemical Technology (BIOT), this international conference provides exposure to the latest developments in bioprocessing with a focus on downstream processing and aspects that affect the downstream steps. Unparalleled opportunities to network with industry leaders are a key feature of the conference. The size, venue, and schedule of the meeting are specifically designed to provide multiple opportunities for discussion and development of new areas and concepts relating to the separation, purification and efficient processing of biological products.

    The 2018 Recovery of Biological Products XVIII Conference theme is “Bioprocessing 3.0”, and the conference will bring together top academic and industrial scientists and engineers to stimulate discussions about how best to innovate to move this field forward in the face of considerable challenges. In addition to the oral sessions, the conference will include a set of poster sessions, keynote addresses and special sessions designed to allow all delegates to contribute their scientific and technical knowledge to the entire delegation. It provides an opportunity to learn of the latest developments in downstream processing and an open forum for scientific and intellectual exchange among leaders of industry, government, and academia. The conference will be at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC from October 7-12, 2018. Kenan Institute support is leveraged by sponsorship from corporate partners.
