Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the 2018 PDA Europe Vaccines conference to be held 24-25 April 2018.

The conference will address new trends in vaccine development and life cycle management, including (1) use of platform technologies, (2) prior knowledge, (3) development of novel vaccines comprising therapeutic vaccines and cancer vaccines, and (4) considerations on accelerated development scenarios. In this context, Quality by Design principles have now been embedded in various aspects of vaccine development and beyond. The conference will provide an overview of the applicability of QbD in various aspects, from product, analytics and process standpoint and considerations during life cycle management, as well as touch base on newer trends in the regulatory field such as ICHQ12.

We aim to continue the discussion around current CMC trends and regulatory strategies for emerging diseases, as started in frame of the Ebola vaccine some years ago and which has evolved since then.

We look forward to welcoming you to this special PDA Europe event in Spain next April!

Sincerely, The Chairs

Cristiana Campa, Conference Chair, GSK Vaccines
Nancy Cauwenberghs, Conference Chair, MSD
