Day 1 - Monday, October 19, 2009                                           Details on Day 1

Morning Session 8:30 am-12:00 noon
BIOPHARMACEUTICALS AND BIOPROCESSING
A changing regulatory environment and the introduction of biosimilars has put pressure on biopharmaceutical manufacturers to lower production costs and refocus on product quality. These Biopharmaceuticals and Bioprocessing sessions will cover innovative production, purification, and analytical technologies that will help biomanufacturers solve these challenging industry conditions.

Researchers will present on:

Researchers will present in succession, followed by a panel discussion w/questions and answers, time permitting

BREAK FOR LUNCH

Afternoon Session 1:00 pm-4:30 pm
MEDICAL DEVICE TECHNOLOGIES
Medical devices have emerged as an innovative and profitable area of research and development. The key to commercialization of novel medical devices is transitioning from a research lab through design, manufacturing, business formation and FDA/clinical approval. These Medical Device Technologies sessions will cover novel devices, MedTech startups, novel processing and tissue engineering, as well as clinical trials for medical devices.

Researchers will present on:

Researchers will present in succession, followed by a panel discussion w/questions and answers, time permitting


Day 2 - Tuesday, October 20, 2009                                           Details on Day 2

Morning Session 8:30 am-12:00 noon
NANO/BIOSENSORS
These sessions will present novel, innovative nano- and microtechnology- based sensors aimed at point-of-care medical diagnostics, environmental monitoring, and chemical detection (including explosives). A variety of sensor platforms will be discussed, including antibody-based, living-cell-based, and electrical and optical property-based devices.

Researchers will present in succession, followed by a panel discussion w/questions and answers, time permitting

BREAK FOR LUNCH

Afternoon Session 1:00 pm-4:30 pm
NANOMANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY FOR BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS
The transfer of nanoscience accomplishments into useful technology is severely hindered by a lack of understanding of the barriers to nanoscale manufacturing. Nanotechnology-based commercial products cannot be realized without first understanding how one can assemble and connect trillions of nanoelements, how to prevent failures and avoid defects, and how to develop responsible manufacturing processes. Speakers will present on recent micro and nanomanufacturing developments with focus on biological and medical applications.

Researchers will present in succession, followed by a panel discussion w/questions and answers, time permitting
