Midwest Regional Forum Program in Chicago 
Work Smarter Not Harder - Leveraging Prior Knowledge to Accelerate CMC Programs   

  Online registration for this program closes Monday!
Don’t miss out!


Please join us in Chicago on Tuesday, October 23. This forum will explore strategies to speed delivery of material to the clinic for FIH trials by using prior knowledge and project platform approaches.  Speakers will also discuss strategies about streamlining development studies to lock down process decisions earlier in the development cycle.  The afternoon will feature two interactive case studies showing how risk-based approaches have been applied, the first on data needed to support shipping of temperature sensitive biologics, and the second on the development of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs.)

Previous regional forum attendees have said:

  “Great opportunity to network with industry colleagues and opportunity to share knowledge.” – Eric M.

      “Topics are very relevant to my projects and work responsibilities.” – Don E.

  “The chance to discuss relevant topics in the pharmaceutical/regulatory environment openly with colleagues and regulators is so valuable.” – Todd M.
