Supporting Organization Events
CASSS maintains a calendar of events hosted by similar, non-profit scientific societies that we feel would be of interest to our members.  In order to have your event posted on this page, the following must be true: a) The requested event must be organized by a nonprofit. b) The event must be related to biopharma. c) The sponsor/person requesting the post must be a member of CASSS. Please check back often for updates.

Upcoming Events

Gordon Research Conference: Critical Quality Attributes to Advance Therapeutics and Vaccines from Candidate Selection to Drug Product

January 6-11, 2019
Galveston, TX US

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by December 9, 2018


Biotherapeutics and vaccines play a critical role in improving public health globally. They are being developed for acute and chronic clinical indications that cover the spectrum from infectious diseases to oncology, including respiratory/auto-immune, cardio-vascular, gastro-intestinal and neurological disorders. The development of biologics, from candidate engineering and selection, through expression, purification, formulation, analytical characterization and finally delivery to patients, is a highly inter-disciplinary scientific field. This field lies at the interface of Immunology, Virology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Bio-Chemical Engineering, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Protein Chemistry, etc., and is governed by critical expectations of key regulatory agencies, viz., US FDA, EU EMA and Japan PMDA.

The mission of this new GRC is to assemble subject matter expert (SME) scientists from each of these fields to collectively tackle the highly inter-disciplinary fundamental scientific challenges underlying the development of biotherapeutics and vaccines. Unlike other conferences, which tackle the continuum of development in a piecemeal fashion, e.g. separate purification or formulation/analytics streams, this GRC assembles all SMEs together in a cross functional meeting that reflects the inter-disciplinary scientific/engineering challenge of biotherapeutic and vaccines development. Expression and purification strategies often impact drug product critical quality attributes, whose influence cascades into the bio-physical measurements, interpretation of data and decision-making by formulation, analytical, delivery and process design experts. Moreover, while diverse constructs are under clinical development, the same construct, e.g., monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), can be applied as therapeutics and prophylactics. Given the prolific clinical development of mAbs, cross-learning is of paramount importance to facilitate non-incremental advances in this field. In addition to mAbs, development of other molecular constructs, e.g., bi-specifics, peptides, fusion proteins, antibody-drug conjugates etc. will be discussed.

This GRC welcomes all interested scientists from the biotech/bio-pharma industry, academia, private/government research labs, non-profit organizations etc. Post-doctoral scientists and graduate students are especially encouraged to attend and everyone is expected to participate in the lively discussions that characterize GRCs! While talks are by invitation only, attendees are requested to present posters on their research. Poster sessions will be organized in the afternoons.

MSB 2019: 35th International Symposium on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis

March 25-28, 2019
Corvallis, OR USA


In the MSB Symposium Series it is intended to have a forum for the discussion of fundamental and application-driven aspects of microscale separations and bioanalysis at an international venue that assembles the thought-leaders and emerging scientists from both the academic and industrial communities. Towards that end, the MSB 2019 Organizing Committee has embraced the following guidance of the MSB Series Strategic Program Committee (see also “Essentials of the MSB Symposium Series“):

• Session topics dealing with new, hot, actual and/or controversial developments in microscale separations and bioanalysis matching the MSB Series Strategic Intent
• Oral presentations that are time wise split in 2/3 talk and 1/3 for discussion.
 Highly engaged session chairs who will be actively involved in arranging the session, will have speaking time to introduce the session topic and the keynote speaker, and moderate and orchestrate the discussion.

The scientific program of MSB 2019 will be arranged along two major tracks viz. Fundamentals of Microscale Separations and Application of Microscale Separations. The organisation committee will define session topics along these tracks and eventually invite session chairs (see next page). Session topics can be proposed by others who will become a session chair but first requires symposium chair contact and an abstract describing the motivation for the topic of a session and suggest a keynote speaker.

The main motto regarding the MSB Symposium Series is: “Anyone submitting a scientifically strong abstract may be accepted for oral presentation at a MSB symposium“.
