Formulation and Stabilization of Biotherapeutics - MIT Short Course

Monday, July 22 – Wednesday, July 24 2013

This event was posted by Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Location: MIT Campus | Cambridge, MA

Biotherapeutics, particularly antibodies, are currently the fastest growing pharmaceuticals. Ideally, they are formulated in aqueous solutions, often a great challenge due to physical and chemical stability issues. This course addresses those challenges across a range of topics from aggregation to oxidation, deamidation, and hydrolysis. It covers these topics from the basic to the advanced level with an emphasis on modeling. In addition, cutting-edge technologies are described and analyzed. The course as a whole focuses on giving you additional tools and knowledge to help streamline solutions to formulation and stability issues for biologics.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is targeted for scientists and engineers in biopharmaceutical development. It would also be of interest to those in biomanufacturing, in which stability issues perpetually arise. The course will be of particular benefit to those who wish to enhance their skill in efficiently and effectively addressing stability issues and formulation. Those who should attend include:

  • Formulation scientists from beginning to advanced
  • Scientists and engineers who are interested in or need to understand stability issues
  • Bioprocessing scientists and engineers
  • Scientists and engineers interested in physical and chemical processes that occur with biomolecules
  • Managers responsible for pharmaceutical development, manufacturing, and regulatory affairs
