The Pharmaceutical industry has changed over the last 20 years. Today, traditional small molecules and biologics coexist with new therapeutic modalities that can offer extremely efficient treatment for common and rare debilitating diseases. Drug substance and drug product complexity could only evolve by the adoption of advanced processing platforms.  Efficiency, agility, and flexibility are the major driving forces. The ultra-rapid discovery, development, and manufacturing required to develop treatments for a biological threat such as COVID-19 emphasize that innovations, that seemed to be optional just a year ago, could be immediately deployed. They also reveal major gaps. 

This live webinar will review some of the most interesting discussions that took place at AIChE’s PD2M Future of Pharmaceutical Manufacturing workshop last year; and explore the impact that the global pandemic could have on the future of pharmaceutical discovery, development and manufacturing.
