PDA will host the 2019 PDA Cell and Gene Therapy Conference, May 6-7, as part of its inaugural 2019 PDA Biopharmaceuticals Week. Building on the success of PDA’s recent Cell and Gene Therapy Conference in October 2018, this event will explore the most recent advances that have taken place over the ensuing months. The Program Planning Committee is building an agenda to address some of the key issues currently facing the industry: product realization, including the “nuts and bolts” of getting product to the clinical stage and how to target the right regulatory body; product characterization testing; electronic batch records; tech transfer and comparability; knowledge management; facility design; and vein to vein; among others.
