It is our pleasure to invite you to the
3rd Workshop of the European Network on Viral Vaccine Processes (ENVVP)
to be held November 25-26, 2013, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
This 3rd meeting of the ENVVP will further push this discussion forum on process needs for Viral Vaccines and Viral Gene Therapy Vectors.
The 2nd meeting focused on both human and veterinary applications, as dose cost constraints yield different processes in these applications. As an outcome of the meeting goals for process improvement in the coming years were identified as well as challenges for industry and research at academic institutions.
This next meeting will create a flux of knowledge and information regarding viral vector-based applications in Gene Therapy (where finally one product was approved in 2012) and viral vaccine manufacturing, whereas quality controls for mostly labile viruses that have to be infectious in Gene Therapy create more demanding requirements. The "cross talk" amongst practitioners should permit the identification of future trends for R&D based on clearly identified challenges.
Thus, this 3rd ENVVP workshop will focus on:
"Process challenges for Viral Vaccines and Gene Therapy"
On top of a few keynote speakers already identified, we are inviting presentations that should be more than "descriptive" of what is already available. They are challenged to identify the challenges, bottlenecks, and new in process tools or analytics, eventually usable for process monitoring and control; in a word "prospective" - thus leading to lively discussion as in previous years.
Prospective/conceptual presentations may cover more basic aspects, as virus - host cell interactions of relevance for process as well as up - and downstream processing and process integration approaches and concepts. Please submit a 1-page abstract online.
Please do not hesitate to contact the organisers in case you have additional questions:
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Frankfurt in November 2013.
