Topic: Challenges in Managing Multiple Bio-manufacturing Projects
Development of Biologicals poses significantly different challenges,
both in technological and project management terms, when compared to
small molecules. Regulatory requirements for Chemistry Manufacturing and
Controls (CMC) aspect of development of biologicals drive decision
making during product development. In addition, Project Management of
the CMC aspects at a Contract Manufacturing Organization and a
multi-product facility presents interesting problems. Dr. Advant will
compare and contrast regulatory expectations and manufacturing aspects
of a biological drug versus a small molecule.
