About this Product: 

This short course will aim to guide the researcher in designing studies for accelerated stability testing of biologics. The course will begin with basic underlying concepts governing protein drug product stability, and focus on design principles for meaning stress and accelerated stability testing of not only the protein of interest but also of excipients and primary packaging components. Strategies to handle complexities arising from their interactions will also be discussed.

About the Conference: 

The Bioprocessing Summit brings together international leaders to discuss today's bioprocess issues from cell line selection to manufacturing. The Summit provides practical details in a relaxed, congenial atmosphere that promotes information exchange and networking. This leading bioprocess meeting is hosted in Boston each summer along the lively and cosmopolitan harbor waterfront with its restaurants, cafes, museums and art galleries, and within easy reach of historical sites, Faneuil Hall and the famed North End.
