About us

A business-to-business membership organization, BioPhorum consists of ten phorums leading more than 110 industry-changing initiatives with the help of 7,500 active subject matter experts.

Established in 2008, we bring leaders and subject matter experts together to collaborate on challenges in existing and emerging topics that affect the whole industry including change notification, cybersecurity, extractables and leachables, forecast and demand planning, knowledge management, single-use systems, and sterile filtration. Many global companies collaborate with BioPhorum, such as license holders, manufacturers, and CDMOs. While academia and materials, equipment, IT, and engineering suppliers also send their best people to connect and collaborate.

“Our mission is to create an environment where the global biopharmaceutical and device industry can collaborate and accelerate its rate of progress – for the benefit of all.”

In providing a platform that allows leaders and subject matter experts to work together rather than in isolation, these experts can create partnerships that enable change and provide the quickest route to implementing innovative solutions. By drawing on a vast pool of leaders and subject matter experts, BioPhorum provides a ‘one voice’ industry consensus that assures agencies that new approaches meet GMP inspections and product submissions regulations. The subject matter experts also represent different disciplines – including development, supplies, operations, quality, and regulatory – to produce the connected solutions necessary to make real change.  
Everything we do in BioPhorum is facilitated to ensure that objectives are met and outputs are delivered, and members can leave the organizational and administrative burden of projects to us.  
BioPhorum facilitation enhances and multiplies member contributions. It helps leaders and subject matter experts to gain value by face-to-face or virtual networking and the sharing of ideas. It encourages problem-solving to develop industry best practices and adopt common positions with regulators and suppliers. Our dedicated full-time team of 55+ professional facilitators brings extensive industry and collaboration experience to projects.
