Annual Bioanalytical Conference (July Land O’ Lakes)

Innovation in Bioanalytical Research for Translational Medicine: New Modalities, New Technologies, and Evolving Regulations

Land O' Lakes Pharmaceutical Bioanalytical Conference

The Land O’Lakes Conference Series recognized worldwide as one of the premier teaching conferences for pharmaceutical scientists. The Annual Bioanalytical Conference is a three-day conference to discuss issues, innovations, and applications associated with the analysis of xenobiotics, metabolites, biologics an, biomarkers in biological matrices. This conference is designed to facilitate an open exchange of scientific and methodological applications for bioanalysis and provides a forum for interaction with regulators from multiple agencies. The program is an interactive mixture of lectures, panel discussions and a poster session.

Course Objectives

Check back soon for the 2019 Conference Goals and Objectives.

Here is the overall goal of the 2018 Conference:

The 19th Annual Bioanalytical Conference provides an educational forum to discuss issues and applications related to the analysis of overall approaches associated with Biomarker validation, stability and the associated regulatory concerns that come from this growing area of research and application.

Conference objectives:

  1. To provide a better understanding of the bioanalysis of biologic therapeutics, small molecule xenobiotics, biomarkers and immunogenicity in biological matrices and cutting edge techniques for bioanalysis of leading drug therapies such as CAR T-Cell Therapy;
  2. To gain insight into problems and issues encountered during the drug discovery process and the interface between drug discovery and development;
  3. To discuss current global regulatory issues affecting bioanalysis;
  4. To identify processes for improving the identification and quantification of successful drug candidates and their measurement, including in vitro/in vivo implications;
  5. To discuss analytical issues relating to drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics and their applicability in drug development activity;
  6. To discuss issues associated with information management, data handling and automation in bioanalytical laboratories;
  7. To gain insight into various perspectives on the drug development process, including industry, academia and regulatory agencies;
  8. To evaluate the harmonization of methods validation, quality control and set standards for drug metabolite identification in studies involving bioanalysis; and
  9. To provide a platform for learning, networking, and exchanging ideas and solutions on bioanalysis of small and large molecule.

Poster Session:

The Planning Committee for the 20th Annual Land O’Lakes Bioanalytical Conference invites interested parties to submit research poster abstracts for the 2019 Conference Poster Session on Wednesday, July 17, at the Fluno Center, Madison, Wisconsin.

All abstracts must be submitted via email to the University of Wisconsin by Monday, May 20, 2019.  Proposals will be reviewed and evaluated by a review panel of Planning Committee members.  Acknowledgement of receipt will be sent by e-mail, as well as notification of the acceptance or rejection of abstracts to primary presenters by June 10.  Please do not call the University of Wisconsin to find out the status of your abstract(s). 

To submit a poster for consideration, at least one author must be registered for the conference.  If the poster is not accepted, authors have the right to cancel their registration by the registration deadline of July 1  and will receive a full refund.  Any author present at the Conference must be registered for the entire Conference.
