DME Facility Focus—It’s Time For Dialog

New Challenges Require a Different Mindset

DME is looking ahead to our 3rd Annual Facility Focus program at INTERPHEX 2018. From it’s beginning, Facility Focus was designed to create a dialog within the industry regarding how we are going to meet the new challenges for practical facility designs.

For 2018, DME will be hosting three programs:

  • Flexibility by Design: GMP Manufacturing for the Diverse Product Portfolio will be held on Wednesday, April 18, 10:30-11:30 AM at Stage 1. David Marks, Moderator

    Panelists include:

    • Leo Kreig, Leader, AstraZeneca
    • Daniel Rudolph, PhD, Principal Engineer, Manufacturing Sciences and Technology, Emergent BioSolutions
    • Sean Illig, Director, Process Technology, Vaccines Industrial Affairs, sanofi pasteur

The first two sessions will be built around data received from our industry wide surveys. The third session will include a live audience poll to benchmark best practices in our industry.

Survey Results and Analysis from 2017 presentations are available for download
