Overview

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to warmly invite you to join us for the 2021 PDA Virus Conference!

Given the (virus-caused!) current circumstances and difficulties of long-term planning, the conference will take place as a Hybrid Event, facilitated by an online platform that will allow for remote participation and presentation, in support of the face to face meeting!

These truly global meetings are organized by PDA, in close collaboration with an excellent scientific organizing committee which includes members of European regulatory agencies as well as the U.S. FDA. The program is designed to provide an overview and updates on regulatory expectations and scientific matters related to virus and TSE safety of biotechnology, plasma-derived and cell- and gene-therapy medicinal products.

As in previous years, current and emerging viral threats, viral safety considerations around the selection of raw and starting materials, virus detection and identification methods and strategies, and the design and validation of virus inactivation and removal process will be discussed.

The PDA Europe Virus Conference reliably provides attendees a unique opportunity for interactive discussion and benchmarking. Exchange of information between industry and regulators will improve the understanding and acceptance of new techniques, highlight new and emerging risks and explain novel regulatory approaches.

Panel discussions and ample networking options will complete an impressive program and make it into a worthwhile and well-rounded learning experience for you!

We warmly invite you to join us in Brussels next summer!

Sincerely,

The Chairs

Johannes Blümel, PhD, Paul-Ehrlich-Institut
Thomas R. Kreil, PhD, Takeda
