Event Overview

The global coronavirus pandemic has tested the abilities of bio/pharmaceutical companies to develop new therapies and maintain—or even accelerate—production of existing drugs. Travel bans, restricted access to facilities, and supply chain disruptions are just a few of the challenges facing drug companies, that must provide essential medicines under adverse conditions while protecting their employees and adhering to good manufacturing practices.

In the initial weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, bio/pharma companies, contract service providers, and regulatory authorities have taken measures to ensure continued operations during the present emergency. While addressing the challenges of today, the bio/pharma industry also needs to look ahead to what may be new operating conditions for the coming months or years.

Join the editors of Pharmaceutical Technology and BioPharm International for interviews and discussions with experts about business continuity practices, regulatory compliance, and supply chain management under current—or future—emergency conditions.

Topics to be discussed include:

Business continuity best practices
Employee and facility safety
Regulatory compliance
Addressing deviations
Testing guidance for new and existing drugs
Supplier oversight
Supply chain challenges
Data security, data integrity, and remote data access and collaboration
