Thursday 17th June 2021Risk assessment: Opportunities and challengesMini-symposium VIRTUAL EVENT : 1pm-2:45pm (UK BST)
Risk assessment plays such a pivotal role in modern quality by design (QbD), pharmaceutical development and life cycle management.
This mini symposium will look at risk assessment through the lens of three topical case studies looking at (i) a potential stock out issue, (ii) the current nitrosamine issues and (iii) risk assessment supporting analytical QbD.
Dr David Elder - JPAG/Consultant
Derek Lonergan - Jazz Pharmaceuticals
Steven Mount - AstraZenecaDETAILS AND REGISTRATION
Thursday 1st July 2021Aseptic manufacturingVirtual meeting (1-3:40pm UK BST)
Steriles manufacturing remains one of the most challenging areas of the pharmaceutical industry from both a compliance and a technical perspective. The regulatory expectations continue to evolve, however slowly and new technology has the potential to massively change ways of working.
This meeting is a must for all those in senior roles, QPs and anyone who has an eye on the future in the sector.
Dr Martin Dearden - Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult
Alan Heavey - Sterilization Solutions Ltd
Alan Moon - MHRA
Danielle Mulqueen - Jazz Pharmaceuticals Ltd
Dr Simon Phillips - Nova LaboratoriesDETAILS AND REGISTRATION
Thursday 7th October 2021The reality of ATMP delivery: pharmacy learning and future developmentsVIRTUAL EVENT : 10am-4pm (UK BST)
Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) have revolutionised the treatment of some diseases, particularly those which were previously regarded as intractable to treatment and cure. ATMPs are biological medicines and can be defined by four main categories; in-vivo gene therapies, ex-vivo gene therapies, somatic cellular therapies and tissue engineered products.
As increasing numbers of ATMPs are now being seen through clinical trials and acquiring marketing authorisations. This joint JPAG and Pan UK Pharmacy Working Group for ATMPs symposium will inform and educate the audience about hot topics in the ATMP world.DETAILS AND REGISTRATION
Tuesday 16th November 2021The JPAG pharmaceutical analysis careers fair 2021VIRTUAL EVENT : 1pm-4pm (UK GMT) LAST EVENT:
JPAG presents the pharmaceutical analysis symposium for postgraduate students and early career stage scientists, including those in industry.
We will be holding a Networking and Careers Fair with the opportunity to meet on-line with big industry pharma and other key contacts and take advantage of the great networking opportunities. This could be the event to provide a step-change to your professional career. Your future employer could be here.
This event will be held on-line on the day before a symposium for our major awards, so please also take a look at that also.
Details for both the careers fair and the awards event will appear here soon.DETAILS AND REGISTRATION
Thursday 13th May 2021Biological potencyVIRTUAL EVENT : 1pm-3:30pm (UK BST)
Biological activity is a critical quality attribute for biological products. As this class of therapeutics expands and becomes more complex, with the growth of antibody-drug conjugates and cell and gene therapies for example, there are increasing challenges in developing scientifically relevant biological potency assays suitable for each stage of the product life cycle and, in particular, assays that are sufficiently robust for use in the GMP QC environment supporting clinical and commercial manufacturing.
This meeting will consider approaches to overcoming those challenges, including strategies for transitioning assays from R&D into the QC environment, application of new technologies to improve robustness of assays and methods for measuring the potency of cell therapies.DETAILS

In line with the government advice on social distancing, JPAG has had to take a decision about its future programme of events. Therefore for the forseeable future no symposia will take place as conventional meetings.
JPAG has been working hard to offer its symposia as on-line events, and following a series of very successful virtual symposia events in 2020, we look forward to bringing you more great impactful virtual and in-person symposia events this year.
We look forward to welcoming you to our events soon.
