Course Overview

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

The foundation for the course is the lifecycle concept to process validation that links product and process development, qualification/validation of the commercial manufacturing process, and maintenance of the process in a state of control during routine commercial production as well as continual improvement and lifecycle maintenance.

The Daily Sessions will discuss 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.

The Daily Sessions further focus; to establish the control strategy a supportive Pharmaceutical Quality System must be in place including Quality Risk Management tools, Process Analytical Technology support and Design of Experiment skills. During the course you will be introduced to these elements and they will be linked through practical group exercises.

The course will be interactive with a combination of course lectures and group exercises.
