On 19 March 2018, we will hold a workshop on "Scale-up and GMP Production - Requirements, Challenges and Practical Implementation" in the DECHEMA-Haus in Frankfurt. Experts from Germany and the EU will talk about best practice examples and the gaps which still need to be addressed to bring nanomedicine from bench to bedside.

Take the opportunity to meet professionals in scale-up and the GMP compliant manufacturing of nanoparticles and nanopharmaceuticals and present your project to the community in an elevator pitch. Find out more about the availability of services to produce your own GMP batch for a clinical study and participate in the discussion about requirements to fulfill GMP compliant manufacturing as well as missing funding possibilities and gaps to translate your ideas into a nanomedical product.

The event targets the members of the German Platform NanoBioMedicine as well as professionals from universities, companies and institutions who are active in GMP production of pharmaceuticals and/or the scale-up of nanoformulations. Register by returning the completed registration form to Petra Frömel ( till 28 Feb 2018.

The preliminary agenda can be found here.

Call for pitches:

Present your product, company, institution or project in a 7 minutes pitch. To apply for this session, please send a catchy title and a short description of your contribution to Dr. Nils Bohmer ( till 28 Feb 2018. You will be informed via email about the application process.

Background and motivation:

The construction and operation of a GMP production plant remains a major challenge and involves considerable financial and logistical effort. At the same time, it is also a basic prerequisite for transferring new active substances and treatment options from the laboratory to application. Especially in the case of universities, research institutes, start-ups and SMEs without prior experience, there are often uncertainties regarding the regulatory requirements, the practical implementation or the financing of a GMP production. How can I achieve a scale-up of my laboratory batch? Which guidelines must be observed? Are there service providers in this area and if so, where can I find them? What support measures are available in Germany and the EU?

The workshop is intended to give you the opportunity to find out about successful examples in the field of nanomedicine and to get answers to the questions outlined above.
