Event description

Description

The Inaugural Lecture of Professor Nik Willoughby, Professor of Bioprocessing, Heriot-Watt University

The transition from scientific breakthrough to usable product can be a tortuous one, and none more so than in the therapeutic industry. A combination of manufacturing challenges and regulatory concerns mean that a very small number of laboratory “light bulb” moments actually reach the general public as treatments.

A critical part of this process is the rapid and robust scale up of the drug manufacturing process. In his Inaugural Lecture, Professor Willoughby will discuss the challenges faced in the development of a new therapeutic, from more established protein products through to treatments with huge future potential such as cellular therapies.
