Biomanufacturing: Past Successes and Future Challenges

August 18-19, 2017

Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, University of Wisconsin

We invite you to submit an abstract for poster consideration at this inaugural meeting for the ABioM SIG, to be held annually thereafter. The specific theme of the 2017 conference is “Biomanufacturing: Past Successes and Future Challenges.” This conference will draw upon past successes in the established protein and small molecule manufacturing fields to inform the emerging field of Advanced Biomanufacturing, in which cell manufacturing and tissue fabrication pose significant challenges to the future progress of biomanufacturing.

Posters will be selected from the pool of abstracts. Topics include enabling technologies for advanced biomanufacturing, material and cell sourcing, cell manufacturing, tissue biofabrication, automated cell manufacturing and tissue biofabrication processes, product validation, regulation, and QA/QC as well as workforce training.

The program includes keynote lectures delivered by leaders from industry and academia, panel discussions, exhibition sessions with pharma and biotech companies, and a tour of local biotech companies to facilitate collaborations between academia and industry. In addition, we are pleased to present you with short talks selected from an outstanding pool of abstracts made up of exceptional junior principal investigators selected after an extremely competitive review. We would be delighted to have you present your poster at the conference and share your vision on the field.

Posters: should be no larger than 46 x 46 inches, and should be posted by 8:30am Friday, August 18th, 2017. The conference program is forthcoming, and poster boards will be label with numbers corresponding to your listed abstracts. If you are presenting a ‘Poster Spotlight’, then please email your 4-slide powerpoint or pdf presentation to rashton2@wisc.edu by August 15, 2017. This will be loaded onto a laptop at the conference podium for your convenience.
