On Demand Webinar: Establishing a Stage-Gate Approach to Biomanufacturing

The need for advanced technology platforms that offer a clear, end-to-end path to commercial manufacturing is driving biotech companies to outsource critical stages of their biomanufacturing process.

In this informative webinar, biotech leaders provide thought-provoking examples of applying a stage-gate approach throughout the drug development lifecycle. The information presented will highlight how to perform critical activities leveraging process and analytical development resources from early-stage clinical to commercialization.

Sign up to watch the on demand webinar.


Key learning objectives:

  • - How to adopt a stage-gate approach to biomanufacturing development that is highly flexible yet ensures that critical activities for each stage are effectively delivered
  • - Gain insight into creating a suitable tech transfer process for both early and late-stage programs
  • - Deep dive into process and analytical development capabilities that support effective development

Speakers: Marta Papini, Tom Ransohoff, Stewart McNaull
