Work Smarter Not Harder - Leveraging Prior Knowledge to Accelerate CMC Programs

 Co-Chairs: Sarah Demmon, Eli Lilly and Company, and Robert Seevers, Pearl Pathways

CMC programs are under intense pressure to deliver commercial ready manufacturing processes early in the project life cycle.  In this session, we 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. Finally, we will discuss a case study to explore how companies are using prior knowledge.  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.)

The learning objectives for this forum are:

1.  Discuss current regulatory perspectives on leveraging prior knowledge to accelerate CMC development 
2. Gain industry perspective on accelerating formulation development and risk based approaches to streamlining CMC programs
Active participation in two afternoon case studies as a practical application of risk-based approaches for shipping validation and for development of ADCs.
