    13:00 – 15:00 | P1: Moving Forward from Abrupt Regulatory Challenges to the New Normal
    Moderator: Jason Kerr, MBS, MBA, Senior GXP Specialist, Redica Systems

    The biopharmaceutical industry has a strong track record of regulatory submissions and approvals. These approvals typically leave folks in industry at the edge of our seats, but the pandemic has since brightened the spotlight for the whole world. Since the announcement of a public health emergency in January 2020, we are gingerly entering our third year with the hopes of a “new normal”. Throughout the years, we have seen changes to regulatory strategies that highlight the use of emergency use authorizations in hopes of thwarting the pandemic. Regulatory agencies have released new policies, flexibilities in procedures, and updates to guidances on the fly, but what are the lasting impact of these changes on our "new normal?”. This session will expand on the regulatory challenges we have endured and how we anticipate the future.

    INTEREST GROUP

    IG5: Packaging Science
    Leader: Susan M. Dounce, PhD, Director Commercial Technology Development, West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.

    The pandemic has changed the world of pharmaceutical packaging by bringing new, complex therapeutic entities into the mainstream seemingly overnight. The packaging science community, after spending decades mastering the containment of protein drugs have suddenly found themselves forging into uncharted and unfamiliar fields. With a panel of expert guest speakers, we will explore the inter-relationships and distinctions between RNA, gene and cell therapies. We will discuss how the therapeutic entities, their production processes and distribution, dictate containment requirements including and beyond cold storage. For example, in viral vector manufacturing, challenges arise due to the constant balance between processing small batch sizes and ensuring the valuable product makes it into the freezer within the time that the product is still stable. Finally, we will discuss where commonalities exist between antibody therapies and advanced therapies which would allow the substantial packaging knowledge amassed to date to be translated and leveraged in this rapidly changing landscape.

    INTEREST GROUP

    IG6: Microbiology/ Environmental Monitoring
    Leader: Marc Glogovsky, MS, SM (NRCM), Senior Consultant - Microbiology, ValSource, Inc.

    In this Interest Group Meeting, participants will discuss PDA Technical Report No. 13 Revised, (TR 13) Fundamentals of an Environmental Monitoring Program. There are many aspects of the revision that are coordinated with the expectations of the draft EU Annex 1.

    IG7: Vaccines
    Leaders:

    • Jane L. Halpern, PhD, Executive Director, IAVI
    • Sabrina Restrepo, PhD, Director, Global Vaccines Technical Operations, Merck & Co., Inc.

    The ability to rapidly develop and manufacture mRNA vaccines with high efficacy against the SARS-CoV-2 virus is a tremendous public health accomplishment and has spurred widespread interest in mRNA vaccines for multiple infectious diseases and other indications. Other vaccine platforms and manufacturing technologies that have received less attention will also be important in the future to produce vaccines that can be rapidly manufactured at a low cost, with characteristics needed for easy storage and distribution.

    In addition, the Vaccine Interest Group has recently completed a Technical Report “Strategies for Vaccines Development and Lifecycle Management”. The TR identified three areas of focus to support rapid development and effective vaccine lifecycle management (robust control strategies, comparability assessments and leveraging prior knowledge). These enablers have been incorporated into examples as appendices to the TR and will serve as the base for an interactive discussion.

    INTEREST GROUP

    IG8: Facilities and Engineering
    Leaders:

    • Shelley M. Preslar, MBA, President and COO, Azzur Training Center Raleigh LLC
    • Joachim W. Regel, CA Bioprocess Systems Technical Specialist, Merck Chemicals GmbH

    Vaccine Manufacturing: Case Study and Conversation on Increasing Speed-to-Market

    The focus of this Interest Group will be to discuss different approaches and methodologies to increase our ability to cut down the time it takes to get to market. The session will begin with a case study that presents one approach to significantly reducing the time to market when building a Vaccine Fill/Finish Greenfield Facility. Then participants will discuss ideas to help the industry increase time-to-market for new or renovated facilities. 

    Is there any value in having vendors work together up front to have equipment that more readily integrates with each other? What about equipment that can be incorporated into predesigned modular facilities? With your valuable input, we can determine if there is value in having a deeper discussion (i.e., potential PDA project) around this idea of integrating, coordinating, prefabricating, or even prequalifying critical components of a facility ahead of the construction.

Attendee List Email Scam

Unfortunately, emails are circulating that offer to sell attendee lists for many of PDA’s conferences and events. These emails are sent by scammers.

Note: PDA does not sell its exhibitor or attendee lists, and no third-party is authorized to distribute or sell any lists related to our events. Statements claiming to offer our attendee lists are fraudulent. If you receive emails that propose to sell PDA conference attendee lists, do not engage with the sender and delete the message immediately.
