Why You Should Attend

DIGITAL WEEK - 11th Annual Biologics Formulation Development and Drug Delivery

Our Digital Week Format

We recognise that in today’s worlds our clients need information delivered in a different way; one that recognises that fluid working hours and flexible working environments are the “new normal”. Our DIGITAL WEEK FORMAT is designed to compliment this new way of working by delivering three hours of highly focused, practitioner drive content per day, spread across your working week through our innovative Live+ online streaming platform.

Event Focus

This marcus evans event will provide attendees with a more coherent, efficient, and comprehensive view on the whole formulation process (from preformulation through to production, manufacturing, and delivery). They will benefit from case studies on major challenges such as aggregates, particles, bioavailability, immunogenicity, and compatibility; and will learn how to minimise risks, time, and expenditure.

Protein formulation development is a challenging process which ultimately determines the effectiveness and profitability of the final protein drug. Proteins are complex and fragile molecules which are not easy to identify, comprehend, and most of all, to stabilise in the long term. These are the main parameters for a drug to be accepted by regulators and scientists also have to think one step ahead to look at the impacts of formulation on manufacturing and drug delivery. Besides the complexity of proteins, formulation needs to be robust and count on clear processes which can guarantee the quality of the product, reproducibility, efficacy in fighting against targeted cells, and stability throughout the whole process. Thanks to technical and analytical tools, protein formulation and process development is becoming more efficient. Drug deliveries and drug administration routes are also undergoing a process of innovation.

marcus evans Live+

Our passion is connecting people through our events; we firmly believe a virtual event experience should be no different. Our Live+ content platform will of course give you access to all the presentations as they happen and beyond, but we have to do much better than that! Our focus is on unlocking the incredible knowledge, experience and value within our entire event delegation, not just our world class speakers. That is why our Live + platform is loaded with features to ensure you are able to fully participate.
