Experience the latest advances in protein expression in one virtual event


On May 17, 2018 experience Gibco ExpressionWorld, the world’s largest online conference unveiling cutting-edge technology for protein expression. This interactive forum connects experts from pharma, biotech and academia to share case studies and best practices in the exciting areas of biologics and vaccine development from discovery to production.

  • Access valuable presentations from leading protein expression scientists
  • Network with world-class experts from pharma, biotech and academia
  • Experience interactive training with our virtual labs and technical resources

Attendees will receive first-hand knowledge of the newest technologies for high-titer recombinant protein production in mammalian and insect cells as well as protein expression system design, workflows, purification, and characterization methods.
