Stability of biopharmaceuticals – From molecular interactions to successful products
21st October 2015, Cripps Court, Magdalene College, Cambridge, UK
The MIBio conference series engages world leading experts from industry and academia in a discussion in how the latest molecular interaction based discoveries can be exploited in biopharmaceutical formulation to produce more effective, patient-friendly and safer therapeutic products.
Over the last decade, formulation has become a critical and integral part of the biopharmaceutical development process. With the increasing number of biopharmaceutical pipeline products as well as the increase in number of off-patent blockbuster biologics the importance of formulation is even greater than ever. It is very important to ensure that the latest scientific discoveries and advancements in analytical methods are integrated in the formulation process as efficiently as possible. Only products that are formulated to achieve an excellent stability profile and convenient administration will succeed in the increasingly competitive market place.
One of the aims of MIBio 2015 is to discuss the latest advances in understanding molecular interactions that can be harnessed to improve formulations of biopharmaceutical products. Such advances will only create value if they are properly utilised in the product development process. Therefore, another aim of MIBio 2015 is to discuss the most efficient ways of integrating the latest scientific and methodological advances in the formulation process and, in turn, optimal ways of integrating formulation development in the overall development process. The best ways of extracting value from such advances via creating new intellectual property will also be discussed. Seven key experts in the field will present during the day on these topics, and, as is traditional in the MIBio series, there will be opportunities for audience participation in the discussion of these important matters.
MIBio 2015 expects more than 100 industrial and academic research attendees to create an interesting and stimulating event fostering new collaborations and discoveries that will help steer the development of the next generation formulation technologies. We will be inviting abstracts for poster submissions and welcome applications for sponsor and exhibitor slots on the day. We look forward to seeing you at MIBio 2015!
MIBio 2015 is organised by the Formulation Science and Technology Group (FSTG) and the Joint Colloids Group of the SCI and Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) together with the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences (APS), with valuable assistance from the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). The event will be held on 21st October 2015, Cripps Court, Magdalene College, Cambridge, UK.
