IFPAC® - 2024


Innovation, Emerging Technologies, Development & Control

March 3-6, 2024


IFPAC-2024 will have mutliple tracks in Biotechnology with powerful sessions and expert speakers. Join experienced professionals and the next generation of leaders at this forward-looking event!

The tremendous lineup of sessions, workshops, and discussions will focus on the latest trends, technologies, guidance and real-life applications to achieve and maintain drug quality and manufacturing efficiency in the biopharmaceutical arena. Representatives from the FDA, USP, NIST, industry leaders, academia and reasearch institutions from across the globe will be in attendance.

IFPAC's BioTechnology Tracks bridge with the IFPAC annual event which brings in case studies from parallel industries; providing further opportunities to hear lessons learned that can be applied in the biotechnology industry.

A comprehensive Exhibition showcasing the latest instrumentation and services will also be available.



Program Overview

The comprehensive program will continue to address important mainstay topics, as well as the latest advances and applications in bio-manufacturing. The implementation of Continuous Manufacturing is on the rise in the biotechnology/biopharmaceutical industries in order to achieve the highest product quality and optimal manufacturing efficiency and flexibility.  The use of PAT Applications to monitor biologics-based drug manufacturing in real time, rather than the finished product, is an important area that will be covered during this symposium including new technologies, best practices, case studies, and a look to the future in biotechnology manufacturing.  In addition we will have sessions on BioSimilars and comparisons of real time analytics in small vs. large molecule drug production; the latest advances in in Cell & Gene Therapies and CAR T; and a special Bio Workshop on PAT & Models.
