WCS - CAPA — How to reduce, investigate, correct, and prevent Human Error in Manufacturing Processes
ID
797200
Dates
26 May 2016 - 27 May 2017
Location
Chicago, United States
Abstract
Course has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion . Human error is known to be the major cause of quality and production losses in many industries. Although it is unlikely that human error will ever be totally eliminated, many human performance problems can be prevented. Human errors start at the design stage. From procedures, training, and workplace environment many variables that affect human behavior CAN be manipulated reducing the likelihood of these occurrences. To work with these challenges it is really important to understand human behavior and the psychology of error as well as understand exactly where the systems weaknesses are, so they can be improved and/or fixed. This course offers practical approaches to address human performance issues in GMP related environments by using a specific methodology to investigate, correct, prevent and avoid re-occurrence of these issues.

AMS — 14th Annual Strategic Alliance Management
ID
883459
Dates
01 May 2017 - 03 May 2017
Location
Philadelphia, PA, United States
Abstract
The successful development of new medicines and combinations is becoming increasingly reliant on harnessing an alliance ecosystem. As the rate of pharmaceutical and biotech partnering continues to rise, alliance management, and the development of an organization’s alliance capability, have evolved into critical components for successful execution and maximized value of each partnership. Yet alliance managers are often confronted with myriad challenges, including managing increasingly complex and distinct types of partnerships, dealing with integrations or divestments, overcoming corporate and cultural diversity, as well as navigating organizational restructuring, team turnover and partnership termination. The need for effective methods to systematically manage biopharma partnerships throughout their entire lifecycle continues to drive and shape the discipline of alliance management. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 14th Annual Strategic Alliance Management Congress, May 1-3, brings together senior alliance management, business development, technology transfer and licensing professionals, to network, share experiences, discuss case studies, and share the components that cultivate successful partnerships. Delegates will gain strategic insights, proven tools, methods, and perspectives from a variety of leaders advancing the art of alliance management.

FASEB SRC — Mobile DNA in Mammalian Genomes
ID
877099
Dates
18 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017
Location
Big Sky, Montana, United States
Abstract
This SRC is focused on the dynamic nature of mobile DNAs in mammalian genomes and their phenotypic impacts. Topics will encompass mechanistic and evolutionary aspects of diverse types of retrotransposons, including LINE-1 and endogenous retroviruses, as well as DNA transposons and related human genes. Attendees will also explore interactions between these sequences and the epigenome and endogenous machinery of DNA repair and rearrangement. These elements comprise are a major portion of our DNA, and are significant contributors to genomic diversity in the form of structural variation. While the germ line is a well-known site of activity of mobile genetic elements, there is increasing evidence for expression and mobility in somatic cells and in human diseases, particularly cancers. This makes it an exciting time for the field. Moreover, new insights are being gained into roles of mobile elements in shaping gene regulatory networks in normal cells. Finally, harnessing mobile genetics elements as tools for forward genetic screens or gene delivery has provided new capabilities to change the genome. This is a long standing meeting, certain to be thought provoking, animated, and collegial all at once.
