PHSS-UCL Q3P ANNUAL CONFERENCE, 17 September 2020, UCL, London UK 



This major PHSS conference, in association with UCL Q3P, will address the key challenges in manufacturing and aseptic processing of Biological and Advanced Medicinal Therapeutic products (ATMPs) considering challenges in GMP compliance and application of Quality Risk management. We are pleased to announce this year we are returning to the School of Pharmacy, Brunswick Square.


New ATMP therapies present new challenges in aseptic processing, contamination and cross contamination control at many different scales of processing. A case study will be presented for an ATMP product with a viral vector to consider the pathway and GMP challenges from development to commercial scale up.


Biological products are now coming through development, formulation and scale-up progression into aseptic manufacturing. Many new products are starting at small scale moving into aseptic manufacturing with the challenge of connecting science/ scientists and GMP. A case study presents the key challenges and how such challenges are addressed with increasing GMP knowledge and risk mitigation in aseptic manufacturing.
