Worcester Polytechnic Institute is launching the Advanced Industrial Biomanufacturing symposium to bring together industry and academic leaders working with new technologies, processes, and business practices that will have a significant impact on biomanufacturing in the near term. 

The two-day event will feature topics including continuous biomanufacturing; alternatives for filtration and chromatography; new expression systems and cell culture platforms; the growing importance of supply chain management; advanced IT systems to reduce risk in biomanufacturing. 

“Globalization, biosimilars, and disruptive technologies are reshaping the industry. Our goal for this new symposium is to establish a forum for people to share timely ideas and discuss the implementation of new processes, technologies, and best practices that are impacting biomanufacturing today,” said Kamal Rashid, PhD, director of the BETC and research professor at WPI.

The inaugural session of the symposium will run on April 4th and 5th at WPI's Gateway Park campus in downtown Worcester.

Keynote and Plenary presentations include: 

  • “The Shrinking Footprint - Next Generation Technologies in Biomanufacturing,” presented by Sam Guhan, vice president of operations at Amgen.
  • “Biomanufacturing Innovations for the 21st Century,” presented by Joanne Beck, senior vice president and head of Pharmaceutical Development at Shire.
  • “The Era of Bioprocess Innovation - Transformations in Cost, Quality, and Speed,” presented by Parrish Galliher, founder and chief technology officer of Xcellerex, now part of  GE Healthcare Life Sciences.
  • “Sustaining a Consistent Quality Profile Across Multiple Scales and Manufacturing Sites,” presented by Ralph Lambalot, vice president of biologics development and manufacturing launch at AbbVie.

The symposium will also include session talks by subject matter experts from Biogen, Roche Custom Biotech, GE Healthcare, Cimetrics, Pall Life Sciences, FloDesign Sonics, MilliporeSigma, Hart Design Group, PBS Biotech, MassBioEd Foundation, and the faculty from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and WPI.
