Protein Aggregation: Mechanisms, Particle Formation, Advanced Characterization & Rheology

  January 07, 2019  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, New Brunswick, NJ or Virtually
May 30-31, 2019

Who Should Attend?
This course will be of interest and value to scientists, formulators, supervisors, and managers engaged in development, production, analytical characterization and approval of biotherapeutics and who require a good working knowledge of protein aggregation.

The training will be beneficial to those working in such areas as, 
  • R&D
  • Protein Biochemistry/Biophysics
  • Quality Assurance/Quality Control
  • Stability
  • Formulation 
  • Production

The course will also benefit Regulatory Affairs professionals who would like to learn the scientific background of this highly relavant area.

Course Description
This intensive, 2-day course relates primarily to the challenges encountered in formulating high concentration Monoclonal Antibody based biotherapeutics. These include protein aggregation, formation of sub-visible particulates and generation of high viscosities leading to issues with syringability. The course will develop the fundamental understanding of protein structures and mechanisms potentially responsible for protein aggregation and formation of sub-visible particles. Advanced characterization techniques to characterize protein secondary and tertiary structural changes and subvisible particle characterization will be introduced. Additionally, advanced rheological testing methods will be discussed in the context of requirements and challenges in protein formulation viscosity measurements. These essential analytical methods will be reviewed along with some “tricks of the trade” to enhance and streamline the efficient and effective use of these methods. Practical case-study examples and an opportunity for attendees to use their newly-acquired knowledge in simulated situations will be included.
