Land O'Lakes


The Land O’Lakes Conferences are recognized worldwide as one of the premier teaching conferences for pharmaceutical scientists. This conference will allow participants to discuss issues associated with the analysis of xenobiotics, metabolites, biologics and biomarkers in biological matrices. The conference will encourage an open exchange of scientific thought on methodological applications for bioanalysis. The program features several opportunities for interaction, including lectures, discussions and a poster session.

Overall Goal:

To provide 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.

Selected Objectives:

  • 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
  • To gain insight into problems and issues encountered during the drug discovery process and the interface between drug discovery and development
  • To discuss current global regulatory issues affecting bioanalysis
