Join us for a series of presentations, on November 15th from 11am-1:30pm, hosted by Laureate Biopharmaceutical Services, exploring the basic requirements and considerations that you need to be aware of when planning for a successful biologic IND submission.

Program Overview:
Prescience International invites you for an in-depth look into the process of filing a biologic Investigational New Drug (IND) application and the procedures necessary for advancing your company’s early-stage drug development program.

Whether your goal is to develop a pipeline through commercial launch, or partner as early as possible, submitting an IND is a critical early milestone for every biotech company. With big Pharma and VC firms competing for the most promising compounds, startups are expected to demonstrate a solid plan for achieving IND acceptance.

Presentations will highlight the following:
• Key components of the Chemistry/Manufacturing/Controls
• Expression, Purification, Analytics, Formulation, Fill/Finish
• Preclinical study design, species selection, material requirements and timelines
• Regulatory requirements, strategies to minimize costs and timelines while balancing risk
