Diverse Collaborations for Global Innovation

It is with great pleasure that the WCBP Scientific Organizing Committee invites you to WCBP 2023. For more than 25 years, WCBP has established itself as a premier conference for professionals from industry, academia, and global regulatory agencies to come together in an informal setting to address the challenges of biopharmaceutical development. With the diverse challenges of the modern world, the theme for this year’s meeting, “Diverse Collaborations for Global Innovation”, importantly captures the idea of individuals with different perspectives working together to drive innovation around the globe.

The WCBP Scientific Organizing Committee, which includes individuals representing industry, academia, and regulatory agencies, is looking forward to welcoming everyone. From first-time attendees to those who have attended in previous years, WCBP 2023 will offer something for everyone, including the chance to reconnect with colleagues or make new networks.

Please join us at WCBP 2023 and be part of a scientific community dedicated to delivering safe and effective medicines globally through innovative biopharmaceutical development!
