Conference Announcements and Information


Dear Friends of Recovery,

For more than 35 years the Recovery Conference Series has been the premier international forum for the presentation and discussion of the status, trends and opportunities in the recovery of high-value biological products with therapeutic, diagnostic, or industrial use. The co-chairs of Recovery of Biological Products XVIII are pleased to announce that the next conference will be held October 7 – 12, 2018 at the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. This readily accessible, world class facility provides a new and outstanding venue for the conference.

The theme for RXVIII will be "Bioprocessing 3.0", and the conference will bring together top academics and industrial scientists and engineers to stimulate discussions and debate about how best to move our field forward in the face of considerable challenges.

In addition to the oral sessions, the conference will include a stimulating set of poster sessions, keynote addresses and special sessions designed to allow all delegates to contribute their scientific and technical knowledge to the entire delegation. The call for papers for the meeting is now closed, and announcements of accepted abstracts as well as invitations to attend the meeting will be delivered in May 2018. As this meeting is heavily over-subscribed, invited delegates will be required to fully register and pay for the meeting by 1 July 2018, and delegates that do not do so will risk having their invitation rescinded and offered to another worthy applicant. In the meantime, we hope you share our excitement about the next Recovery Conference. We encourage you to mark your calendar for October 2018 and to start thinking about how your work can contribute to the technical program and your community. .

The RXVIII Conference Co-chairs,
