The 6th edition of the Kisaco Research international Phage Futures Europe will be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from Wednesday 6th July till Thursday 7th July 2022.
What is the 6th Phage Futures Europe and Why attend?
This year’s summit comes together to provide insights into the latest clinical updates from the global phage biotechnology companies and pioneering clinical therapeutic centers. The forum provides you with an opportunity to explore solutions to pressing challenges in the formulation, manufacturing, and regulation of phage products, driving forward clinical and commercial translation of phage technologies.
The 6th edition of the Phage Futures Europe introduces two days of an in-person conference, bringing together leading biopharma, expert academic centers, and innovative service providers to discuss and share research and development strategies for progressing bacteriophages’ past discovery. Examination of the microbiota as an effective phage target and developing strategic tools for the downstream production of phages. Discover the developments of leading biotechnology companies in the formulation of feed additives and the application of phages within agriculture.
This year’s conference will focus on; formulation and standardized trial design, optimizing manufacturing for stability and global market optimization, leading agriculture and poultry applications of phages, dedicated interactive panel to address specific challenges in the global regulatory landscape surrounding bacteriophages.
Who will be at the 6th Phage Futures Europe?
Over 20 speakers from a diversity of fields will be attending.
The summit will bring together individuals from different industries and occupations, such as; academia, biotech, pharma, regulatory and governments, service providers, and clinicians.
