3rd Annual Biosimilars and Biobetters Congress 2015 London

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Conferences Ltd are proud to present the 3rd Annual Biosimilars & Biobetters Congress, taking place on 20 – 21 April 2015 in London, UK at the Novotel London West. The congress is an exclusive opportunity for over 350 biologics experts to exchange their experiences, engage in scientific discussions and debate the best practices and solutions to improve the biosimilars industry performance.

    Despite having to overcome tight regulatory, business and financial challenges, the biosimilars industry is forecast to be worth up to $25 billion by 2020. The rapid growth of the industry requires biosimilar experts to be at the forefront of knowledge with the current landscape of the industry.

    The 3rd Annual Biosimilars & Biobetters Congress forms part of Oxford Global’s highly successful Biologics Series. For more information on other events in this series, please see the details below:


    In keeping with Oxford Global’s highly successful life sciences series, an expert panel of 20 speakers will present a full conference programme covering the topics outlined below. These topics have been compiled as a result of a comprehensive research process undertaken with our advisory board members including VPs, Directors, Senior Research Fellows and Professors from global pharmaceutical organisations and leading research institutions.

    Day 1 – Market Access Strategies, Opportunities And Commercial Challenges

    Day One will explore biosimilars market access strategies, opportunities and commercial challenges. Our esteemed speakers will provide the latest regulatory updates and multiple perspectives on biosimilars. Presentations will also provide an insight into market access initiatives and opportunities in emerging markets, case studies on global commercialisation strategies and evaluating the current market for biosimilars success.

    • Assessing the landscape of biosimilars: interchangeability and substitution
    • Evaluating the current market for biosimilar success: challenges, opportunities and barriers
    • Case studies on global commercialisation strategies
    • Market access initiatives and opportunities in emerging markets
    • Regulatory updates on biosimilars
    • Balancing technological innovation with regulatory requirements

    Day 2 – Developing Biosimilars And Biobetters

    Day Two will focus on biosimilars and biobetters development. Internationally renowned speakers will discuss current challenges and obstacles in the development of biosimilars and the latest solutions to demonstrate biosimilarity. Delegates will also have the opportunity to hear different characterisation methods, industry case studies on biosimilar mAb development and clinical and non-​clinical advances in biosimilars.

    • Demonstrating biosimilarity: challenges and solutions
    • Clinical and non-​clinical advances in biosimilars
    • Characterisation methods: physio-​chemical characterisation, structural characterisation, glycosylation analysis
    • Future challenges and obstacles in biosimilar development
    • Ensuring the quality of follow-​on biologics: analytical testing, downstream processing
    • Analytical development and formulation strategies for follow-​on biologics

    Who is Speaking

    Our speaker programmes are carefully researched each year to ensure that delegates are exposed to the highest level of expertise. However, delegates not only benefit from the experience of our speakers, but also gain an insight into the experiences of other attendees – Q&A sessions and panel discussions are utilised to enable knowledge share and facilitate idea exchange.

    If you have a cutting edge case study or a presentation and would like to join the speaker panel at one of our events, please contact Eszter Nagy.
