IFPAC-2016 Summit - Advanced Manufacturing: Guidance, Regulations and Best Practices

Welcome Letter from the Scientific Board


IFPAC and INDUNIV have planned the premier event for professionals and students in the pharmaceutical sciences and biopharmaceuticals.  This meeting covering the latest initiatives in Quality by Design (QbD) and Process Analytical Technology (PAT) is to be held on June 21-22, 2016 at the Marriott Courtyard, Isla Verde Beach Resort in Carolina, Puerto Rico, conveniently located just 10 miles east of downtown San Juan, and five minutes from the Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport.

Puerto Rico has a number of leading PAT/QbD applications in the Pharmaceutical and Biotech industries.  The first day will focus on lectures including regulatory aspects and a case study on the complete process setup of a project with continuous manufacturing and then we will move into working sessions.  The conference will take you beyond the basic principles of PAT & QbD serving not only those that are starting to work in this area, but those that are already seasoned and familiar to these important  FDA and industry initiatives.  We will have plenty of new information of companies that are already involved in PAT and QbD.

This conference will be a showcase of new developments and trends in pharmaceutical science.  Our conference program will be based on a quadrant approach, where each quadrant of the IFPAC summer summit conference will have a specific topic and set of deliverables.

• Quadrant I: Regulatory Aspects / Continuous Manufacturing
• Quadrant II: Process Knowledge & Process Monitoring Methods
• Quadrant III: QbD & PAT Implementation: Biologics
• Quadrant IV: Pharmaceutical Engineering for QbD & PAT: Management of PAT Data

We believe that we have organized a unique conference with a holistic approach to Process Analytical Technology, Quality by Design and overall Process Understanding.

Please join us at the Isla Verde Beach Resort on June 21-22, 2016 for this conference.
