CMC Strategies for Novel Biologic Modalities – Blending External and Internal Development 
Co-Chairs: David Cirelli, Pfizer, Inc. and Chi-Ting Huang, Surface Oncology
Multiple well-established CMO/CRO partners are available within the U.S. and globally to support outsourcing of monoclonal antibody development. However, new modalities present unique challenges in finding skilled partners to co-develop complex and new therapeutic products, including viral vectors, cell and gene therapies, microbiomes, as well as novel protein and conjugate formats. Availability of external expertise for research, process & formulation development, clinical manufacturing, analytical testing, and sourcing of raw materials is currently limited. In addition, approaches for blending internal and external development may be different for large and small companies when selecting external partners. This forum will feature discussions about the interaction between industry sponsors and CMO/CROs on the outsourcing strategies for technical (process development, analytics, manufacturing, formulation & drug delivery), business, quality, and regulatory components of drug development for new modalities.
