Protein Engineering Biocatalysis Congress 2022

Expanding the biocatalytic toolbox for transformations through directed evolution, computational technologies and synthetic biology to establish scalable, sustainable and cost-efficient API manufacturing

DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Airport
25-26 October, 2022

“A very specific and engaging meeting that brings together both enzyme engineering providers and end-users”

Maria Lucas, CEO Zymvol

Why Attend

Protein engineering has shaped the direction for biocatalysis being integrated into the workflow of large pharma globally. With the toolkit for enzyme design and discovery improving rapidly, this community is now presented with an enormous array of opportunities for the design of sustainable biocatalytic strategies.

The Protein Engineering Biocatalysis Congress will highlight case studies on scaling up these technologies for commercial scale. This event is your opportunity to analyze developments in protein engineering for biocatalysis to establish sustainable, scalable and cost-efficient API manufacturing.

As the unique meeting point of industry, academia and service provider, this forum enables protein engineering and biocatalysis enthusiasts to industrialize sustainable enzyme products and increase product efficiency globally.

Key takeaways:

  • Engage with leading pharma companies such as Pfizer, Merck, Boehringer Ingelheim and AbbVie that are utilizing advances in protein engineering to deliver on the ever-increasing opportunities for industrial biocatalytic processes.
  • Discover state-of-the-art enzyme discovery methods that are aiding the engineering of ERED/IRED industrial biocatalysts.
  • Enable commercial-scale immobilizations and reduce the amount of enzyme required for meaningful process development via automated, data-rich processes.
  • Outline steps to improve enzyme stability and improve long-term biocatalyst performance under industrially relevant conditions.
  • Understand how advances in computational technologies can aid protein design, directed evolution, and next-generation enzyme engineering workflows.
