This session provides an overview of modern regulatory CMC strategies which may be selectively applied for a cross range of product classes (e.g. biopharmaceuticals, biologics, advanced therapy medicinal products, biosimilars, vaccines) and how this can be used in consideration for objectively reducing the overall time and cost. This ‘interactive’ session will focus on biopharmaceuticals, biologics, ATMPs, vaccines and biosimilars. Collective team discussions, whiteboard exemplification and workthroughs will be made on key topic points.
