CHI to Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of PEGS - the essential protein & antibody engineering summit

1,600+ scientists will convene at this event to celebrate the evolution of biologics, and the generation, characterization & clinical application of proteins.

NEEDHAM, MA, USA, February 10, 2014 / -- This Spring, Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI) will host its 10th Annual “PEGS - the essential protein engineering summit” at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, Massachusetts.

Over 1,600 participants will gather in Boston’s historic Seaport District for open forum discussions and collaboration in the areas of protein & antibody engineering, oncology, expression, analytical, safety, and -new this year- bioprocessing and therapeutics programming. The continued success of PEGS is driven by the growth in biologics worldwide, the quality of scientific programming presented and valuable networking opportunities.

A plenary keynote session will kick off the week with presentations from industry leaders Bahija Jallal, Ph.D., Executive Vice President of MedImmune, and George D. Yancopoulos, M.D., Ph.D., President, Regeneron Laboratories; CSO, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
