Phorum Director

Biopharmaceutical manufacturing faces significant challenges in todays world driven by a combination of challenges from global geo-politial instability, rapid advances in technology and the drive for sustainability. Quality strategy and practice is critical to managing change and protecting product and site licences. 

BioPhorum is responding to these challenges by creating a Phorum for Quality leaders to collaborate and shape responses to shared objectives. To enhance collaboration and accelerate progress on Industry’s shared quality objectives, an emerging new program is being shaped by members of a Quality Leadership Team comprising of global quality leaders from pharma companies and SMEs from across the industry.   

The group are meeting face to face for the first time 12-14 March 2024 in Morrisville, North Carolina hosted by FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies at their BioProcess and Innovation Centre Research Triangle Park facility. 

A mix of case-study presentations, working sessions and round table discussions will enable leaders to exchange learnings and perspectives on some of the initial topics prioritized by the leadership team for their inaugural F2F event including quality culture best practices; ​Quality Management System considerations​; Inspections and benefits of group advocacy plus the role that Quality can play to advance the conversation on regulatory pathways to approval of emerging technology.   

This event aims to support the team to develop actionable short, medium and long term goals for a future program of collaboration designed to allow individual organizations to realize added value and bring about positive change for industry’s quality ecosystem. 

As well as a tour of FUJIFILM’s BioProcess and Innovation Centre, event attendees will also enjoy a visit to Holly Springs where FUJIFILM are building what will become North America’s largest cell culture CDMO facility. 

Are you interested in attending and joining us on the journey to lead and drive development of a program of collaboration dedicated to Quality – please email info@biophorum.com
