Bioassays Registration Closing April 18

This year's symposium will take place May 5-7 at the Gaithersburg Marriott Hotel Washingtonian Center, in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The symposium presents an opportunity for attendees to interact with key industry thought leaders and discuss topics such as the current perspectives, strategies, and technologies used for bioassays.

This year's keynote presentation will be delivered by Patrick Swann, who leads the Quality Sciences and Technology Group at Amgen. The title of the keynote is “The Evolution of Bioassays – A Technical / Regulatory Perspective from Both Sides of the Fence.”

New this year: workshop on bioassay development and understandingwill be held prior to the conference on Sunday, May 5, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Learn how to build a better bioassay from well-known bioassay specialists.





CMC Strategy Forum Europe 2019 Registration Closing April 18
This year's Forum will be taking place 13-15 May in Seville, Spain.This Forum offers a blend of topics that characterize the challenges facing the biotechnology industry in the next decade.They include:
  • ICH Q12 and Post-Approval Changes
  • CMC Challenges in Accelerated Drug Approval
  • ICH Q14 / Q2 – Trends and Concepts for QbD for Analytics
  • Continuous Manufacturing for Biologics
  • Personalised Medicine and Manufacturing 4.0 for Biopharma

Congratulations to our MSB Student Travel Grant Awardees!

CASSS is pleased to be able to provide travel grants for PhD candidates and academic postdocs presenting at CASSS Partner Meetings. Our Academic Committee selected four recipients who received travel reimbursement grants to attend the 35th International Symposium on MicroScale Bioseparations, last month, March 25-28, in Corvallis, Oregon, USA. To learn more about the Student Travel Grant Program, visit HERE.

More on our winners:







Paridhi Agrawal,University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
Abstract:DNA sample preparation for long-read genomics using microfluidics

Summary:We have developed a miniaturized platform to prepare long DNA samples from human cells which will be useful for extracting clinically-relevant genomic sequence information using long-read genomics tools.

"I am very grateful to CASSS for the student travel grant, which supported my attendance at the MSB 2019 conference. I had a wonderful experience attending a conference for the first time and presenting my work to a very relevant audience. The small group size and strong emphasis on scientific discussions provided a great learning and networking opportunity. Excellent plenary speakers, recently commercialized technologies and a large fraction of young scientist presentations were the key highlights for me. Without CASSS, it would not have been possible for me to utilize this opportunity."



Weijia Leng,Florida State University

Abstract:"Improving microfluidic-based separation systems for monitoring cellular secretions."

Summary:Improving electrophoretic separations of biomolecules using new microfluidic approaches.

"I would like to thank CASSS very much for helping me attend MSB 2019. I have been working on microscale electrophoretic separation during my graduate school research. MSB provides a dynamic discussion environment for me to discuss with scientists who are doing inspiring work all over the world! I really enjoyed this conference and the atmosphere it created for discussing and networking. I am grateful for the opportunities the travel grant provided me!"




Soraia Vasconcelos de Freitas, Federal University of Goias

Abstract: "Development of microfluidic paper-based devices for colorimetric detection of analytes related to periodontal diseases in saliva samples."

Summary:Multiplex assays for salivary diagnosis.

"Going to MSB 2019 was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Everything that was presented at the conference was of great value for my professional growth. The knowledge exchange was intense during the conference, and having the opportunity to meet experts from the field was incredible. I would like to thank the entire CASSS team for the opportunity and their support."



Manjula Wijesinghe,University of Kansas

Abstract:"Experimental and theoretical development of bipolar electrochemistry-fluorescence-based detection system for microchip electrophoresis."

Summary:Development of a sensitive method to monitor electroactive chemical species present in biological samples indicative of neurodegenerative diseases.

"I presented my work as a pitch talk and as a poster to an audience in the field of microfluidics. I received great feedback from conference participants and that encouraged me to develop my work further. Also, I was able to learn exciting technological developments on the microscale separations and bioanalysis."
