Course Overview

The aim of this 4 Day Online Course is to provide an insight into the pharmaceutical product and process lifecycle concept. The course covers both small and large molecules, i.e. both biotech process (upstream, downstream), chemical pharmaceutical API and drug products and is based on EU and US regulations supported by ICH.

The Daily 4 Hrs sessions will discuss (among many others): pharmaceutical process development using QbD principles, establishing the control strategy, transfer of the process into commercial operations, validating it and being able to execute it for routine production – product realization (manufacture and release products). High attention will be on the Quality by Design approach and the establishment of the Control Strategy that drives scale-up, technology transfer, qualification, validation, commercial operation and continual improvement. These sessions will be interactive with a combination of course lectures and group exercises
