With an emphasis on product development challenges and regulatory expectations in the US, Europe and other highly regulated regions, this workshop provides an in-depth study of chemistry, manufacturing and control (CMC) product development requirements and best practices associated with biologics, biosimilars.
Specifically designed for RA/QA professionals, managers and scientists responsible for biopharmaceutical CMC development and preparation of dossiers, this in-depth discussion will take a regulatory approach to the technical issues that arise during biologic product development and registration.
Topics will include:
21 November 2021 – 21 June 2022: Early Bird $825 member | $970 nonmember
22 June 2022 – 22 July 2022: Regular $970 member | $1,150 nonmember
This program will benefit early, mid-career, and senior subject matter experts (SMEs) and regulatory professionals in CMC working in development, registration and post-approval lifecycle management for biological products. There are no prerequisites for participation. It is recommended that Biologics CMC Workshop: Current Trends, Future Trends and Regulatory Challenges be taken prior to this course for early career SMEs.
