"Driving Lyo-Productivity through Practical QbD and Advanced Technologies" - SMi Group

Due to four new speakers being added onto the agenda, SMi Group are delighted to announce that a new brochure has been released for the 2nd annual Lyophilization USA conference taking place on April 27th and 28th in Iselin, New Jersey. Those who have recently confirmed to present include Allergan, Genentech, Endo Pharmaceuticals and Parexel.

Building on the success of the European Lyophilization series, SMi takes Lyophilisation & Freeze Drying to North America for the 2nd year. The agenda will look to strengthen knowledge of lyophilization productivity as well as discuss the practicalities of QbD and scale up, keeping attendees at the forefront of technological breakthroughs to adapt to the growing need for cost efficient manufacturing.

Understanding regulatory compliance, protein stability, formulation development and PAT guidelines will be a major focus, as will hearing from a selection of leading pharmaceutical companies currently implementing freeze drying processes. This will include case studies from Pfizer, J&J, Baxter Healthcare and Janssen.

Even highlights include:

  • Strategic guidance on life-cycle development using a QbD approach for commercialization as well as insight into regulatory QbD filings.
  • Panel debates which ask the audience, “Is Lyophilization the way forward?” Led by Allergan and Janssen, the discussion will explore current market trends for pharmaceutical products, alternative approaches and scalability. The panel debate on day two will delve further into the future of pharmaceutical freeze drying with input from Novo Nordisk.
  • Two interactive workshops on development through technology transfer (hosted by Steritech Solutions), and parenteral and diagnostic products (hosted by AB BioTechnologies).

Featured speakers include:

  • Jim Searles, Ph.D., Technical Fellow, Pfizer
  • Sune Klint Andersen, Principal Scientist, Novo Nordisk
  • Dr. Mark Yang, Director of Fill/Finish Development, Late Stage Process Development, Genzyme Corp
  • Dr Evgenyi Shalaev, Research Investigator, Allergan
