Dear Colleagues,

In the last decade, the scientific community and industry had to respond urgently to outbreaks and pandemics of H1N1 Influenza, Ebola, MERS, Zika and now SARS-Cov2 (COVID19). Vaccines are the ultimate response to emerging diseases, but their development typically take multiple years and manufacturing large amounts of doses in an emergency is a major challenge. While lesson learned from past outbreaks and pandemics have allowed to implement innovations and changes in vaccine manufacturing and improve response to a high surge of vaccines, the current COVID19 pandemic is undercovering remaining issues around manufacturing and capacity. How can we re-think vaccine manufacturing so it can be more efficient and faster to set up? What type of manufacturing and design should we consider? This webinar will delineate key considerations and perspectives on how manufacturing needs to evolve and particularly facilities and process designs to change the vaccine manufacturing paradigm.

Topics will include:

  • Vaccine industry overview
  • Challenges with pandemics and outbreaks
  • Current practices
  • Perspectives on how vaccine manufacturing needs to be re-imagined to better respond to emergency situations

    We look forward to seeing you online!
