The explosion in activities related to the development and manufacture of Biopharmaceuticals has lead to concerns that skillsets in industry may not be adequate to cope with demand. Opportunities exist for professionals hitherto operating in more traditional areas to transition to programs (and careers) related to biopharmaceuticals by developing awareness of and familiarity with such materials. The basic principles of dosage form design, manufacture and material and product control and analysis are fundamentally the same as for conventional "small molecules" but techniques, processes and associated technologies differ.
Areas Covered in the Session:
Historical Background to Medicinal Agents
Properties of Biopharm Drugs
Formulation of Biopharmaceutical Products
Stability and Quality Assurance/Retention
Manufacture (material and Dosage Form)
Control/Assurance of Quality
Who Will Benefit:
Regulatory Affair Managers
Project Management Personnel
Quality Control Managers

Patrick Crowley Professor Crowley played significant technical and management roles in the development to commercialisation of over 20 novel medicinal products and Product Line Extensions during a 38-year career in the pharmaceutical industry. Active ingredients in these medications included novel chemical entities, fermentation products, semi synthetics and two biopharmaceuticals. Products covered a full range of types (parenteral, oral, topical etc). He is the named Inventor of a number of Patents related to dosage form design and drug delivery.
Since retiring from GlaxoSmithKline in 2008 as a Vice President in Pharmaceutical Development he has operated as a Consultant for various multinational, mid-size and startup healthcare organizations in “trouble-shooting technical problems”, product registrations (filings), dosage form development and patent litigation. He is a Visiting Professor at The School of Pharmacy, Kings College, University of London, teaching classes to Masters students on Biopharmaceuticals and Vaccines.
He is also currently working on a Team (based at King’s College) developing an online teaching module for Biopharmaceuticals for Colleges throughout the European Union (PHAR-IN program), assembling the module for biopharmaceutical dosage form design, and manufacture. He is the author or co-author of several publications on various facets of pharmaceutical development.
