Workshop Overview

Biotherapeutics have quickly become an increasingly important technology for treating a diverse array of diseases. In recent years the field has made significant progress, and it continues to do so with sophisticated techniques and therapies. Collectively, these trends amplify the increasing demand for improving existing analytical methodologies as well as developing new tools to characterize these complex biological products in greater detail.
Recent developments in biotherapeutic tools and techniques are driving better health outcomes and the commercialization of promising technologies and therapies. This workshop will cover innovative ways of using data to inform decision-making, and solutions for delivering complex cell and gene therapies. These tools and capabilities are being developed in the context of a rapidly changing industry, which may have an impact on the rate and direction of progress. Final products are subject to a commercialization and reimbursement framework that is being challenged by the pace, scale and novelty of this new era of biotechnology. The latter half of this workshop will cover the mechanisms for investment to support commercialization of promising products.

Objectives

  • Learn about major trends of data use to inform preclinical discovery, manufacturing innovations and clinical outcomes

  • Learn about trends impacting how cell and gene therapies are commercialized

  • Learn about trends in technological solutions for delivering complex therapies to patients and improving access to care

  • Learn about potential career paths and opportunities in these various fields
