Course Overview

This course will provide attendees with a concise but comprehensive overview of all relevant regulatory, technical, and quality elements necessary to assure successful planning and documentation of the required CMC analytical and stability studies for biological products. Key data deliverables from each phase of development will be illustrated. Current ‘hot-button’ CMC analytical and stability issues will be presented, and strategies for preventing (or remediating) gaps will be presented, based on real-world experiences of Dr. Nadine Ritter supporting hundreds of biological products over more than 25 years.

What will you learn?

Phase-specific requirements

Gain a comprehensive overview of the current and emerging regulatory guidances that govern the phase-specific requirements for CMC analytical studies with any type of biological product

Critical path studies

See the rationale behind the critical path analytical CMC studies required throughout different stages of the product life cycle including pre-clinical, clinical trials, commercialization, and post-approval to make effective timeline decisions

Product specifications

Understand the rationale behind setting meaningful, supportable product specifications; learn the key elements to include in biological product analytical control strategies

Method lifecycles

Review the applicable regulations that define phase-specific method validation expectations, and learn best practices for analytical method qualification, validation, verification, tech transfer, and method bridging for all types of methods for biological products.

R&D to GxP Quality Practices

Understand the specific laboratory operational requirements for GxP compliance during product development, and learn the emerging expectations for lab quality and data integrity in R&D labs that generate the CMC data submitted in product dossiers

Live Online Academies

Gain real-time access to a subject matter expert delivering online training in a structured virtual classroom environment. Live online academies are virtual versions of some of our most popular face-to-face courses.
