Thursday 7th February 2019
Accelerated development and approval
Royal Society of Chemistry, London

This symposium offers a diverse programme of talks to look at many facets of drug development programmes, and how analytical science can assist, or is impacted by, the desire to reduce the time taken to get a product to market.

Acceleration of drug development programmes is a common theme whether for smaller companies, or for the larger bio-pharmaceutical players. Reduced time for product development can lead to reduced process experience, fewer clinical batches and increasing the numbers of dependent activities that are run in parallel. Each of these factors may impact analytical scientists, whether in reduced time to develop methods and specifications, limited real-time product stability data, or in increased volume of samples that are generated in short periods of time.

Assuring the quality of medicines III; aseptic products
Royal Society of Chemistry, London
The quality of Aseptic products is the most critical challenge in the pharmaceutical industry. It covers those medicinal products that cannot be terminally sterilised, the majority of new injectable IMPs and all gene therapy and ATMPs. In addition, 2019 is a vitally important year as the revised Annex 1 becomes globally implemented and provides a host of challenges for the industry trying to implement it. JPAG has been able to bring together a unique and almost unparalleled group of speakers in a programme that tries to cover the hottest topics in this field.

There will be adequate time after each presentation to discuss case studies and practical implications.


Thursday 11th July 2019
