“I have recently transitioned from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration where I was a regulator for nearly 21 years supporting the manufacture of quality, safe and effective biopharmaceuticals. As a microbiologist and former regulatory, I am keenly aware that it is critical in our industry to maintain awareness of the regulatory expectations for intended global markets, advancing technological developments, and lessons learned from those with experience with the implementation of emerging technologies into their manufacturing and/or testing procedures.

The conference aims to provide attendees with the most current information regarding pharmaceutical microbiology and contamination control trends in the industry, as well providing them with tools regarding regulatory expectations associated with them.

Conference topics to be showcased include regulatory guidance's and expectations for both sterile and non-sterile biopharmaceuticals with regard to microbial control, risk identification and mitigation strategies for contamination control of manufacturing processes and facilities, microbial contamination control of the environment and operators, alternative methods for endotoxin's and microbiological testing; microbial control strategies for pharmacy compounding facilities, and provide lessons learned from current GMP inspection of facilities manufacturing sterile or non-sterile drugs”.
