ISPE Build A Bio
Date: 21 January 2016

PRESENTATION

Peter Cramer and Jeffrey Odum: http://www.ispeboston.org/files/ispe_build_a_bio_-_cramer_and_odum.pdf


EVENT INFORMATION:
Join ISPE Boston Chapter at the UMass Lowell for an eventful Town Hall discussion covering the ins and outs of manufacturing strategies. The program will include a networking reception including appetizers.  As an added bonus, representatives from UMass Lowell are hosting a tour of the Emerging Technologies and Innovation Center. This is an ISPE MEMBER ONLY tour.  Tour participation is limited, so register now!

PROGRAM SUMMARY:
As companies develop both short and long-term manufacturing strategies, operational efficiency and utilization become very critical to optimizing cost-of-goods, manpower planning, and supply chain management.  The approach that companies may take includes new technology and delivery platforms that are “outside the box” from the traditional project models of the past four decades.  During this session we will discuss the key decisions needed to be made in implementing new technologies in a full single use or a hybrid production facility. Our goal is to get feedback from the audience on the needs of the industry and how advances in technology are changing the way new facilities are being designed and built in the future. We will also discuss the implications and risks associated with choosing new technologies versus current industry standards.

TOUR:
The ISPE Boston Area Chapter is also glad to present a rare opportunity to join a tour of UMass Lowell’s Core Research Facilities in the Saab ETIC and Olney Science Center by CRF Staff.

ISPE Dancing Through Traffic: Facility Expansions in Operating Plants
Date: 18 February 2016

PRESENTATION

Rick Kotosky and John Spohn: http://www.ispeboston.org/files/dancing_through_traffic_-_kotosky_and_spohn.pdf


EVENT INFORMATION: 
Attend the live program at Genzyme in Cambridge, MA, or a simulcast presentation at the Crowne Plaza Providence in Warwick, RI, or a simulcast presentation at the WPI BETC at Gateway Park in Worcester, MA.  The programs at each location will feature a networking reception including refreshments and appetizers.

PROGRAM SUMMARY: 
When companies determine their current GMP facilities cannot support current or future manufacturing requirements, they need to choose whether to renovate, expand, or relocate. Often the decision to retrofit and remediate is the least costly option but most challenging because it must occur in tight quarters with minimal disruption to ongoing processes. Successful execution of these projects require a different approach than the fundamental or classic approach to planning and design. Our speakers will provide direction and strategies that are well-suited to these types of projects.

Specifically, this evening's program will:

*  Methodically presents a different approach to planning and implementation to mitigate product risks and business vulnerability
*  Addresses these key Owner concerns: Limiting production interruptions, developing a high-confidence schedule, proving no adverse effects to process under modification, to product concurrently in-process or to regulatory filings
*  Discusses considerations in all phases of the project lifecycle: Design, Planning, Execution, Return-to-Service
*  Suggests a dramatic shift in the approach to the planning and implementation of retrofit or remediation projects
*  Illustrates with case studies and leaves attendees with actionable information.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: 

This presentation is intended for industry professionals seeking to gain a better understanding of the challenges of performing facility projects in operating GMP facilities.

Science, Technology, and Society, What Will the Next Ten Years Bring?
The Global demand for Biologics and manufacturing capacity is exploding. To meet this demand, medicines need to be affordable and available in mass quantities and the facilities need to be cost effective and flexible.

This program will present information surrounding the direction science is heading, the manufacturing required to deliver new products and the innovative approach to facilities. Our panel consists of educators and industry professionals that will share some of the latest developments in science, manufacturing, and technologies that will shape the future of Biomanufacturing. Join us in a panel discussion with our speakers who will present what they are working on to address these needs.

“Design and Development of Next Generation Nanomedicines” by Prakash Rai
Nanomedicine has the potential to deliver therapeutic agents for enhancing treatment outcome while reducing morbidity. This could dramatically improve treatment responses in several diseases including infectious diseases and especially cancer where the survival statistics have been, so far, dismal. However, progress to date in translating these innovative medicines into commercial success stories is currently limited by the inability to manufacture batches of the nanopharmaceuticals at the required scale and in line with stringent quality control measures required for medical products. Success in developing nanomedicines for clinical use depends on understanding the complex biology, the use of predictive animal models, and the importance of sharing data as key denominators for potential successful translation of nanocarriers from a bench scale into clinical modality for patient care. The global market for nanomedicine, including neurology, cardiovascular, anti-inflammatory, anti-infective, and oncology applications, was valued at $79 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach a value of $178 billion in 2019, predicted to grow 12.3% from 2013 to 2019. It is predicted that nanocarriers will account for 40% of the $136 billion nanotechnology-enabled drug delivery market by 2021. Manufacturing issues in nanomedicine may halt the predicted progress of this field and its imperative that these concerns are tackled in a collaborative way with industry and academia working together to translate nanomedicines

“Aducanumab and Next-Generation Manufacturing at Biogen” by Philippe de Vilmorin
Aducanumab is a monoclonal antibody currently in Phase 3 clinical trials, and it has shown tremendous potential as a disease modifying therapy in Alzheimer’s Disease.  Leveraging the optimism about aducanumab and other promising clinical products, Biogen is building a multi-billion dollar biologics manufacturing facility in Solothurn, Switzerland.  The facility is planned to be the largest ever of its kind, with a total mammalian cell culture capacity that may ultimately exceed 500,000 liters.  This presentation will review the clinical success of aducanumab and introduce the next-generation manufacturing concepts which will enable the Solothurn facility to deliver consistent product quality and unprecedented productivity.

“Avoiding Facility Obsolescence: Immortal Facilities for Increasing Drug Diversity” by Parrish Galliher
As worldwide annual sales of biologics increase toward the 200 bn USD mark, so has the diversity of treatment modalities and drug pipelines increased. Pipeline diversity has grown from recombinant hormones and cytokines to monoclonal antibodies (MAb), MAb-toxin conjugates, Mab antibody fragments, multivalent MAbs, cell-based and rDNA vaccines, precision cell and gene therapies,  therapeutic enzymes, biobetters, biosimilars, biofuels and more. Over the decades, many manufacturing facilities have been unable to accommodate this increasing diversity and have become underutilized, mothballed or obsolete. The presentation will discuss the challenges of increasingly diverse pipelines and process flow architectures and how innovations in manufacturing facility design and operations can maximize facility utilization and help avoid facility obsolescence.

PART 1: Uncovering Hidden Costs Behind Implementing Effective Single Use Technology
As Biotech and Pharmaceutical companies continue to increase their dependence on Single Use Technologies (SUT), effective integration of QRM and SUT is paramount to ensuring both project and operational success. There are several key elements to ensure an effective integration into current engineering, materials management/supply chain, manufacturing operations and quality assurance business systems. Project success also depends on providing the framework for a life-cycle based approach toward SUT implementation. These key programmatic elements will be outlined and through the combination of direct project/practical experience and programmatic development, Mark McElligott will demonstrate robust, effective and sustainable methodologies for reducing risks associated with SUT integration.

SPEAKER:
Mark McElligott, Partner/Principal Process Engineer, Process Design Solutions and PDS Sandbox
Mark McElligott is the Founder of PDS Sandbox, as well as, Partner and Principal SU Engineer with PDS Consulting which are companies providing Single Use technical engineering, QbD/QRM, process/product development/design solutions for Single Use Technology (SUT) end users and suppliers alike.

Mark has developed and successfully implemented life-cycle based SUT programs across the globe by working with end-users and suppliers to establish appropriate and relevant requirements supporting patient safety and product quality.


PART 2: Adaptation of Single-Use Technology in Pilot Plant Operations
Development laboratories utilizing disposable/single-use technology are beneficial because of their lower initial capital expense, faster turnaround times, flexibility to run multiple products in the same facility and reduction of product cross-contamination risk. However, single-use technology also comes with multiple challenges.  Shire’s development laboratory predominantly runs perfusion-based cell culture for multiple weeks using two different types of cell retention technologies: centrifugation and Alternating Tangential Flow (ATF) filtration.  This presentation will focus on the challenges encountered transferring these two sciences from the small-scale development laboratory to the single-use pilot laboratory.  By the end of the presentation you will have a better understanding of the following:
       - How the adoption of single-use systems significantly alters the development model.
       - The design and development required to integrate single-use systems into your facility
       - How to partner with your selected single-use vendor(s) to achieve success 

SPEAKER:

       - The design and development required to integrate single-use systems into your facility
       - How to partner with your selected single-use vendor(s) to achieve success

Tufts Gordon Institute, 200 Boston Avenue, Suite 2400, Medford, MA 02155

EVENT INFORMATION: 
You are invited to attend a live program on Data Integrity with a focus on the recent FDA draft guidance for "Data Integrity and Compliance with CGMP." The event will be held at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick, RI, and simulcast at the WPI LSBC in Worcester, MA; the Redhook Ale Brewery in Portsmouth, NH; and the Tufts Gordon Institute in Medford, MA.  Each venue will feature a networking reception with refreshments and a live Q&A after the presentation. Register now to stay up-to-date on the new FDA guidance!

PROGRAM SUMMARY: 
"Data Integrity" is more than just a buzzword.  With the recent release of the FDA’s draft guidance for “Data Integrity and Compliance With CGMP” this April, it is apparent now more than ever that the pharmaceutical industry still has room to grow when it comes to understanding the serious risks associated with the generation, handling, and archival of GMP data.  The continued issuance of warning letters, consent decrees, and other regulatory action around data integrity has led some organizations to rethink control of their data.  In this program, we will get two different perspectives on the issue: one from an industry expert equipment vendor who leads the industry in Part 11 compliance with over 25 years of experience; the other from a consultant with more than 30 years of experience working to improve GxP compliance in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries.  To conclude the program, our speakers will open up the discussion to the audience for questions and answers.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: 
QA/QC, IT, Validation, Regulatory, Engineers, Auditors, Compliance officers, Lab managers, automation engineers, laboratory and computer systems validation engineers, and any individual responsible for generating or handling data.

SPEAKERS:
Heather Longden, Senior Marketing Manager, Waters

ISPE Accidental Project Manager: Ok I'm in Charge, Now What?
Date: 15 September 2016

PRESENTATIONS
Robert Beane and Stacy Price: 
http://www.ispeboston.org/files/ispe_accidental_pm_sprice_rbeane_2016_0915_joint_final.pdf

Alnylam Pharmaceuticals

300 Third Street #3, Cambridge, MA 02142

EVENT INFORMATION: 
You are invited to attend a live program on survival skills for first time project managers. The program will be held at Alnylam in Cambridge, MA. The event will feature a networking reception with refreshments and a live Q&A session after the presentation. Register now for this great program!

PROGRAM SUMMARY: 
Some people train for a role as a Project Manager (PM) others find themselves suddenly or unexpectedly “volunteered” for the job. How do you succeed in this latter role? What makes a project successful? How do you bring a project in on time and on budget while making everyone happy, including yourself?

Your assignment as a Project Manager is an indication that your project is complex enough to require a dedicated individual to lead/drive, organize and monitor a scope of work, budget, schedule and a number of other success criteria. While effective project management is a profession in its own right, there are techniques and best practices, other than active participation and team leadership, that project managers can learn in order to be more effective. Contrary to popular thinking, you don’t need to become a schedule wizard or Microsoft Project guru. The secret lies in skills that can be honed, even when you’ve unexpectedly landed in a PM role. This presentation will focus on the key areas that are critical to project success and are often overlooked, the implications of overlooking them and the value in attentive project management.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: 
This presentation will be of interest to those:
- New and developing project managers
- Leaders managing others that manage projects
- Curious about the project management profession
- Managing challenging projects

*The Advanced Track will be simulcast to these locations

EVENT INFORMATION: 
Join ISPE at Northeastern University and participate in either one of two Regulatory programs: Quality by Design or Regulatory Fundamentals. The QbD program will be simulcast to locations in NH, MA and RI.  The program at each location will feature a networking reception including appetizers.  The chapter will also have an outreach to non-member students at Northeastern during the reception.

Each track will feature two presentations by esteemed members of the regulatory community.  Please see below for further details and who should attend each track.

TRACK 1 (Advanced):
Nearly a decade after the 2007 PDA/FDA Joint Regulatory Conference on QBD for Biopharmaceuticals in Washington, DC, Janet Woodcock’s vision of QbD as a “scientific, risk-based, holistic and proactive approach to pharmaceutical development” endures. The original intent of QbD was to enable a “maximally efficient, agile, flexible pharmaceutical manufacturing sector that reliably produces high quality drug products without extensive regulatory oversight.” Manufactures have indeed achieved FDA approval by leveraging QbD, but may not have capitalized on all the benefits of that approach.  Our speakers will present a historical overview and an industry perspective, as well as a practitioner’s perspective on how to achieve the most benefit for the least effort and how to get started on implementing QbD quickly.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: 
Research and Development, Process Development, Engineering, Manufacturing, Quality, Regulatory professionals who want to lead and contribute to the industry’s effort in creating more efficient, lower cost and reliable products to their patients.

Presentation I: The Unfinished Story of QbD in the Pharmaceutical Industry
This talk will trace the progression of Quality by Design (QbD) from the introduction of its concepts to the pharmaceutical industry to its current status. The presentation will address practical application to the design and control of pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. While the initial promise of greater regulatory flexibility through QbD-based submissions has not yet been realized, industry generally accepts QbD and risk-management methodologies as a systematic approach to control strategy construction.  Arguably, a comprehensive process and analytical control strategy for a pharmaceutical product is the more important outcome of QbD and the first step towards greater self-regulation.  Some experiences and observations along the way will be shared as well as thoughts on the future direction of QbD and opportunities for alignment and collaboration among industry manufacturers, suppliers and regulators.

Bert Frohlich, Director of Strategy and Technology Lifecycle, Shire
Bert is a Ph.D. Biochemical Engineer with 25+ years of experience in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries.  He is currently Director of Technology Management at Shire Pharmaceuticals within the Process Development and Technical Services organization but has held positions at Roche, Genzyme, EMD, Amgen and Acambis (now Sanofi) in process/facility design and bioprocess development.  Starting from the publication of summary article on Quality-by-Design (QbD: Still in Design? A Report from PDA’s QbD Workshop. PDA Letter, Vol. XLIII – Issue #9 (October 2007)], Bert has maintained an interest in QbD, speaking on the subject at several conferences and leading the design of the QbD business processes at Shire. 

Presentation II: A Simple & Pragmatic Approach to Implementing QbD
The knowledge gathered of a drug substance during early stage research is a vital asset to a company and should be leveraged.  The tools used in Quality by Design provide a framework to transform R&D data into knowledge and useable asset.  However, the terminology and basic statistical concepts of QbD do not always seem to be aligned with R&D teams.  The ICH guidelines refer to patient-centric focus, risk management, and process control.  This terminology may not appear to be relevant to R&D, thus QbD is often implemented during the drug development phase.  This talk is designed to explain research goals in a manner that aligns with ICH guidelines and provide an understanding of the benefits of implementing basic statistical practices early in the product development when the costs are the lowest.  The talk will use examples to demonstrate the value of statistical tools then move to the value of statistically sound data in supply chain management (CROs/CMOs) and technology transfer through the development pipeline.

Amy Lachapelle, Lead Consultant & Founder, QbD Strategies, LLC
Amy is currently the Lead Consultant at QBD Strategies LLC where she teaches and assists companies with approaches to implementing quality by design.  She has 16+ years’ experience with biological research and development, working on purification, development, and characterization of viral vectors for gene therapy at Genzyme then later creating a product stream of protein characterization services for GlycoSolutions.  Amy’s knowledge of biochemistry, mathematics, and cGMP requirements led to her belief that implementation of QbD can benefit the biopharmaceutical industry.  She has spoken on the topic at the R&D 100 conference (“The Hurdles and Benefits of Designing Quality into Your Drug Product in Early Stage Development”, November 2015) as well as two publications on the subject in BioProcess Online.

MEETING MANAGERS:
Mark Braatz, F.W. Webb
Joyce Chiu, Life Science Program Management Consulting
