Patheon Session Summary:

Presenter: John Ward, Vice President, Engineering, Patheon

When a biologics company is preparing to launch a new product, the decision-making process can be daunting. Critical factors such as inaccurate demand forecasts, process development variability and market timing must all be considered, making the supply chain planning process for biologic drug substance difficult at best.

Process development is an effective tool that biopharma executives can leverage in the planning process. During the session, we will identify some of the production options available and the economics of each, as well as the process development methodologies that will maximize an organization’s ability to maintain flexibility on the path to commercialization.
