Cytovance Biologics announces Regulatory Strategies for Gene Therapy Product Development webinar
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., Feb. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cytovance® Biologics, a leading biopharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) of mammalian, microbial and gene therapy biologics, announces its first webinar of the 2021 series: Regulatory Strategies for Gene Therapy Product Development. The webinar set for March 4, 2021 at 12pm Eastern time will be presented by Dawn Wofford, Director of Regulatory Affairs for Cytovance and will feature the current state of regulatory issues around gene therapy product development, key challenges for manufacturing controls and other insights in navigating the path to commercialization.
“We are experiencing an exciting time in the biotech industry with products being developed at an accelerated rate,” stated Ms. Wofford. "The regulatory landscape for gene therapy is constantly changing and global harmonization has yet to be aligned. By understanding the regulations and guidance documents set forth by the global regulatory agencies, we can better address key challenges – including how the global pandemic is shaping and/or repurposing emerging therapeutics,” Ms. Wofford added.
This webinar will appeal to pharmaceutical and biotechnology professionals in the areas of gene therapy product development, regulatory and quality. Attendees will learn about navigating the regulatory landscape; overcoming hurdles from clinical trials, manufacturing and regulatory challenges; and leave with a better understanding of the emerging regulatory requirements.
