|Biophysics Working Group|
CASSS announces the creation of a Biophysics Working Group. This group brings together scientists from across public and private sectors to foster collaboration and address unmet challenges in the application of biophysical methods to biologics research and development.
The goals of the group are to provide guidance and best practices, support innovation and advance transformative ideas, and generally enhance the overall scientific dialogue through contributions in various publications and CASSS conferences around the world. This group also aligns with CASSS’ purpose to enable a global community of industry, academic and regulatory professionals to work together to resolve scientific challenges in the field of biopharmaceutical development and regulation.
Members of the former “HOS Consortium” have included: Amgen Inc., AbbVie, Biogen, Bristol-Meyers Squibb, Boehringer Ingelheim, Eli Lilly and Company, Elion Labs, Genentech, a Member of the Roche Group, GlaxoSmithKline, Janssen, MedImmune, A member of the AstraZeneca Group, Pfizer, Inc., NIST, Sandoz, University of Delaware, University of Kansas, University of New Hampshire, and Yeshiva University.
The group is currently soliciting proposals for collaborative research projects or other initiatives that will effectively leveraging capabilities across member organizations.
