--Keynote Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D. to address concerns on prescription drug shortages--
NORWALK, CT, February 26, 2013 – The INTERPHEX Conference Program, to be held April 23-25, 2013 at The Javits Center, New York City, has been developed to span the pharmaceutical manufacturing life cycle. The compelling conference tracks and accompanying sessions have been configured to reflect the project team environment firms use to usher products from development to commercial distribution.
From expert Quality by Design and Process Analytical Technology tutorials to sound development of a design space, industry thought leaders provide keen insight from a variety of arenas including academia, consulting, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. All functional areas are addressed in five comprehensive session tracks: Regulatory QA/QC, Product Development, Facility & Process Design, Manufacturing & Packaging, and Supply Chain.
Of particular note is a compelling session entitled “Current Continuous Process Validation Program (CCVP) Following FDA Current Guidelines”, presented by Victor Hernandez, EMD Millipore Corporation. CCVP is a vital area where today, firms are frantically backfilling knowledge in order to maintain products throughout their lifecycle. Additionally, Robert Dream's innovative session entitled “Biopharma's Flexible Imperative” will discuss the new model biopharmaceutical facility, one far less rigid than earlier prototypes. Dream, from HDR Company LLC, will discuss external influences on the new flexible model, including the timely role of biodefense.
Congressman Bill Cassidy M.D.’s (R-LA) keynote presentation, “Policy Recommendations for Improving Patient Access to Drugs in Shortage”, will touch upon potential improvements to the current reimbursement system to avoid future drug shortages. Additional keynote sessions include “Reorganizing for the Future: Succeeding in the New Pharmaceutical Industry” presented by Dr. Rajesh Nair, President, Indegene and “Recalibrating the Pharmaceutical Services Opportunity” presented by Jim Miller, President, PharmSource Information Services.
Rounding out INTERPHEX’s educational component will be a series of Exhibit Hall Technology Floor Tours: OSD Technologies, Advanced Aseptic Technologies, Biomanufacturing Technologies, and Modular Construction Technologies. Tours will offer critical insights followed by a walking tour to select vendors showcasing the latest technology and equipment on the show floor.
