MIBio 2019: Stability of Biopharmaceuticals – From molecular interactions to successful products

For further information and to register

Organised with APS by the Formulation, Science & Technology Group

The MIBio conference series engages world leading experts from industry and academia in a discussion on how the latest molecular interaction based discoveries can be exploited in biopharmaceutical formulation to produce more effective, patient-friendly and safer therapeutic products.

The biopharmaceutical product development landscape is rapidly changing. There are an increasing number of novel product modalities, including multi-specific antibodies, RNA based products, fusion proteins or various types of gene and cell therapies. Each of those products poses specific and different challenges that need to be addressed in the development process. In addition, stronger focus on patient-centric product strategies, increasingly more complex regulatory requirements and patent coverage further contributes to the challenge of developing robust drug products. MIBio 2019 will focus on discussing these challenges as well as strategies to overcome them, particularly focusing on protein-protein interactions, formulation, drug product development and competitive product profiles.

We expect more than 100 delegates from industry and academia to create a stimulating event fostering new collaborations and discoveries that will help steer the development of the next generation formulation technologies. We will be inviting abstracts for poster submissions and welcome applications for sponsor and exhibitor slots for the day.

MIBio 2019 is organised by the Formulation Science & Technology Group (FSTG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Joint Colloids Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) / Society of Chemical Industry (SCI) and the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences (APS). The event will be held on 13th November 2019, Howard Theatre, Downing College, Cambridge, UK.

We look forward to seeing you at MIBio 2019!

Organised with APS by the Formulation, Science & Technology Group

This one-day symposium will address issues and challenges associated with mutagenic impurities. It will provide an excellent opportunity for dialogue, discussion and debate with speakers – several of whom have been very actively involved in shaping the guidance – and the peer group in an open forum.

For more information visit JPAG Events

The symposium will be followed by the annual F. Fish Lecture, which will be given by Dr. Ben Whalley.

‘Cannabis: from a forgotten medicinal plant to new prescription cannabinoid medicines’.

Ben has previously worked at the School of Pharmacy, University of London, then at the University of Reading and in the last years he has worked for GW Pharma.

This year’s conference will run over three days and starts with an exciting pre-meeting workshop on pharmacological due diligence, delivered by Prof.Steven
Workshop capacity is limited and PhD students/postdoctoral researcher places will be prioritised,so be sure to secure you place early!

We already have a fantastic line-up of invited speakers, with more to
follow, including:

* Prof. Stephen Husbands (University of Bath)
* Prof. Paul Leeson (Paul Leeson Consulting/University of Nottingham)
* Dr Vania Moreira (University of Strathclyde)
* Dr Geoffrey Wells (University College London)
* Prof. Mike Waring (Newcastle University)
* Dr Chris De Graaf (Sosei Heptares)
* Prof Paul Wyatt (University of Dundee)
* Prof. John F. Gilmer (Trinity College Dublin)
* Prof. Pierre Verhaeghe (Paul Sabatier University/CNRS)
* Dr Nuria Cabedo (Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain)

In addition, we invite abstract submission for poster and oral presentations. The GP2A conference offers an opportunity for PhD students
and early career researchers to share the stage with our invited speakers, so this year a number of abstracts will be selected for oral communication.

Remember members of the GP2A network are entitled to substantial registration discounts, so be sure to enrol as a network member
prior to registration, as your membership number will be required to obtain the discounted rate.

We look forward to welcoming you to Nottingham.

Best wishes from the organising committee:

Dr. Shailesh Mistry & Prof. Barrie Kellam Division of Biomolecular Sciences and Medicinal Chemistry School of Pharmacy University of Nottingham.
