Open Innovation Resources for Biomanufacturing

Therapeutic proteins represent a number of the currently top 10 best-selling drugs and have combined sales of almost $64 billion per year.  The enormous market potential for biosimilars or biobetters has created a crowded field of developers.   As a result, there is a growing emphasis on emerging analytical techniques and their lifecycle appropriate application.  Industrial, federal, and academic researchers will gather to discuss available open innovation resources and technological advancements for fueling biopharmaceutical development.  On Thursday, June 23, 2016 at 8:30 AM join the thought leaders, policy makers, and developers of therapeutic proteins as we present current trends, ideas, and predictions on the use of open innovation biomanufacturing resources and emerging technologies.
