THE LEADING PHASE-BASED BIOPROCESSING EVENT FOR ADVANCING PROMISING BIOLOGICS TOWARDS COMMERCIAL SUCCESS
BREAK DOWN SILOS ACROSS DEPARTMENTS AND STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT
The BPI West 2019 agenda is comprised of five phase-based tracks, designed to bring attendees working across multiple departments together to collectively share challenges and discuss the solutions needed to improve the speed, lower the cost and increase the quality/safety of biologics development.
NEW FOR 2019! VIRAL SAFETY
Ensure regulatory success for your biologics and understand how industry leaders are implementing successful virus detection and viral removal programs.
EARLY STAGE PROCESS DEVELOPMENT TRACK
Advance promising biologics from early stage process development to IND by learning how industry leaders reduce timelines, lower costs, develop robust cell lines, and utilize new technologies in downstream processing.
LATE STAGE PROCESS DEVELOPMENT TRACK
Increase speed to market while ensuring your product is ready for launch by applying global best practices to develop continuous and intensified processes, achieve process robustness and simplification, streamline process validation and characterization, and alleviate bottlenecks in tech transfers and scale up.
COMMERCIAL MANUFACTURING TRACK
Create a sustainable commercial manufacturing program by applying innovating strategies for capacity and continuous improvements, successful launch and lifecycle management, optimizing operational efficiencies, and achieving real-time control strategies.
SINGLE-USE/ FLEXIBLE FACILITIES TRACK
Accelerate development for multi-product pipelines, global markets and capacity optimization by meeting requirements for validation, supply chain, design and operational considerations.
GAIN THE SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGIES AND CONTACTS YOU NEED TO ACCELERATE BIOLOGICS TO MARKET
