Record Attendance for Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Seventh Annual PEGS Europe Summit

More than 700 attendees will participate in Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Seventh Annual PEGS Europe Summit in Lisbon, Portugal from 2-6 November. PEGS Europe is the leading European event covering all aspects of antibody engineering, biologics development, bioproduction, protein expression, and formulation, and will feature 175 technical presentations, 100+ scientific posters, 45+ sponsors & exhibitors, dedicated networking opportunities, exclusive poster viewing hours, interactive roundtables, breakout and panel discussions, and nine hands-on short courses.

“PEGS Europe is a favorite of mine as the choice of tracks, the variety of short courses, the excellent networking, the huge number of posters, and the large exhibition provide the event with an enormous buzz,” stated Nicole Lyscom, Senior Conference Director at CHI. “I am sure you will enjoy it and learn a lot.”

This year’s conference will offer five plenary keynote presentations, including Dr. Lorenz Mayr from AstraZeneca, Dr. Paul W.H.I. Parren from Genmab, Dr. Andreas Plückthun from the University of Zurich, Dr. Tristan Vaughan from MedImmune, and Dr. Gregory Weiss from the University of California, Irvine.
