Pitfalls, Strategies, and Opportunities in Vaccine Manufacturing – Walking softly through the Minefield

Jun 23, 2020 1:00pm PACIFIC TIME

To date, there are a dizzying array of different vaccine platforms and technologies. Many generate great initial promise and are much ballyhooed; however, due to inherent limitations, some cannot be readily made at large scales, while others, due to gaps in design, are not likely to come to fruition. But just how does one decipher hyperbole from practicality, identify inherent strategic flaws, delineate the early‑stage candidates that should be further developed, and best orchestrate a process development and manufacturing campaign? In this webinar, we will explore vaccine manufacturing strategy and capacity, process development operations, and outsourcing, as well the best practices to scale up vaccine manufacturing and the levers that can be pulled to significantly accelerate development timelines in a safe manner.

Who should attend: Biotech entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, market analysts, the discerning investor, public and government officials, and all those with an interest in mitigating and eliminating disease by making vaccines available to a wide segment of the population.

Who should not attend: Anti-vaccine activists.

Dr Jacobson – Consultant and Scientist

As an academic researcher, Dr. Jacobson studied the molecular basis of autoimmunity and the use of cDNA vaccines as a means to break peripheral tolerance. In early-stage biotech, he led initiatives on IND‑enabling studies for therapeutic cancer vaccines and oversaw relationships with contract manufacturing organizations (CMO). As a consultant, he performed process validation/scale-up activities at a CMO for an oligonucleotide-based adjuvant, and, at large pharma, he was on a team that was responsible for the process development of a quadrivalent influenza vaccine. Currently, he focuses on providing advice on the quality and regulatory requirements for vaccine manufacturing and application submissions. On a personal level, he is an engaging raconteur.
