Join us for the week and you will
Examine the latest scientific and technical advances to overcome the critical challenges faced by bioprocessing professionals at all stages of development to help you achieve your company’s process and product development goals.
Find solutions to the unique challenges of developing and manufacturing therapeutic proteins, that will help you reduce time, cost, and variability during process and product development.
Learn approaches to implement the latest analytical technologies that optimize process and product development.
Find the ideal balance between in- and outsourcing to optimize your company’s core competencies, mitigate risk, and maximize productivity.
Hear case studies of novel process and analytical method transfers to increase efficiency while ensuring quality consistency.
Learn how companies are interpreting the process validation guidance and hear strategies for conducting process and analytical validation.
Discussion forums will provide uncensored insights on some of the industry’s most pressing concerns: What are we doing with our idle capacity? Can we create a consortium for small and large companies to deal with overcapacity as a community? What are phase-appropriate approaches to support exploratory investigational new drug (IND) applications? Keynote Presentations
