MIT/ILP Calendar Event
Formulation and Stabilization of Biotherapeutics
OverviewBiotherapeutics, particularly antibodies, are currently the fastest growing pharmaceuticals. Ideally, they are formulated in aqueous solutions, often a great challenge due to physical and chemical stability issues. This course addresses those challenges across a range of topics from aggregation to oxidation, deamidation, and hydrolysis. It covers these topics from the basic to the advanced level with an emphasis on modeling. In addition, cutting-edge technologies are described and analyzed. The course as a whole focuses on giving you additional tools and knowledge to help streamline solutions to formulation and stability issues for biologics.
Who Should Attend
This course is targeted for scientists and engineers in biopharmaceutical development. It would also be of interest to those in biomanufacturing, in which stability issues perpetually arise. The course will be of particular benefit to those who wish to enhance their skill in efficiently and effectively addressing stability issues and formulation. Those who should attend include:
- Formulation scientists from beginning to advanced
- Scientists and engineers who are interested in or need to understand stability issues
- Bioprocessing scientists and engineers
- Scientists and engineers interested in physical and chemical processes that occur with biomolecules
- Managers responsible for pharmaceutical development, manufacturing, and regulatory affairs
MIT is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The campus, situated in close proximity to Boston’s Logan International Airport, profits from Boston’s excellent public transportation system and the on-campus Tech Shuttle. The closest subway station is Kendall Square, which acts as a commercial center for MIT and the local community.
