Vaccine Journey: Bench to Market



WEBINAR

Vaccines are entering a new era, and, in these sessions, we will share some insights about the market trends, projections, challenges, and potential solutions around the future of vaccine manufacturing. We will also discuss the cost of vaccine manufacturing in both traditional and novel platforms.

Finally, we will share information on how Quality by Design (QbD) is applied in vaccine manufacturing, including the principles and application. We will include case studies with a special feature of  TFF technologies. Last, but not least, we will discuss the scale-up consideration using the QbD concept.
