Submit an abstract for a one-day poster presentation at the 2016 PDA Annual Meeting by August 24. Abstracts related to novel manufacturing and analytical technology are preferable, but those addressing improving manufacturing performance, changing regulatory landscape technology as well as advances and expectations are also welcome.

The Opening Plenary session at the 2015 PDA Annual Meeting looked closely at how approved personalized medicine products are changing the traditional concepts of manufacturing. The session also focused on how the business environment around manufacturing is changing and the impact it has on the industry going forward.

Biotechnology and bioprocessing continue to advance as novel therapies emerge for the treatment of a variety of diseases. In response to new molecular modalities and novel molecular entities, development and manufacturing approaches are evolving to meet the challenges associated with reliably and efficiently producing and supplying these products to enable patient access globally. The 2016 PDA Annual Meeting is the most significant conference to attend to gain the newest and most comprehensive information about innovative biopharmaceutical approaches and the bioprocessing technologies and manufacturing sciences being applied for development and commercialization.

The three main tracks of the meeting “Advances in Bioprocess Development”, “Innovation in Manufacturing Sciences”, and “Lifecycle Management and Continuous Improvement” will address many of the current challenges facing industry. Plenary sessions are focused on novel biopharmaceutical therapies, rapid product development approaches and manufacturing considerations. The program, which also includes breakfast and interest group sessions, is designed to offer science, innovation and technology information in a format that allows participants to gain a broad perspective on key topics as well as the opportunity to select the areas that are of most importance to them.

We will hear from experts involved in discovering novel therapies, rapid product development, bioprocess advances, manufacturing sciences, control strategies, regulatory submission and lifecycle management planning along with many other important topics. The 2016 PDA Annual Meeting is the most inclusive event, which provides insight into current and future trends in bioprocessing and manufacturing, providing participants the information they will need to prepare for the next wave of biopharmaceutical innovation. The PDA Annual Meeting also offers abundant networking opportunities for peer to peer discussion during the breaks and social events.
