4th Annual Oxford Global Biosimilars and Biobetters Congress 2016 London

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences are proud to present the 4th Annual Biosim­i­lars & Bio­bet­ters Con­gress tak­ing place on April 1819 2016 at the Hotel Novo­tel Lon­don West in Lon­don, UK. Together with the 9th Annual Pro­teins and Anti­bod­ies Con­gress 2016 and the 3rd Annual Oxford Global Pep­tides Con­gress 2016, the 3 events pro­vide a unique oppor­tu­nity for over 350 global lead­ers in the bio­log­ics indus­try to exchange knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence, share their ideas on inno­v­a­tive prac­tices, and ben­e­fit from engag­ing net­work­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties with peers in the biosim­i­lars and bio­log­ics field.

    The rate at which biosim­i­lars are being devel­oped and approved is gain­ing momen­tum, and the indus­try is likely to reach a pro­jected value of up to $20 bil­lion by 2020. As ever more biosim­i­lars reach the clin­i­cal and com­mer­cial stages, we will bring together key sci­en­tific and busi­ness minds to address the major chal­lenges and most excit­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties that lie ahead for the industry.

    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 Francesca Lord at f.​lord@​oxfordglobal.​co.​uk.

    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 busi­ness and com­mer­cial aspects of the biosim­i­lar land­scape, with top­ics includ­ing key mar­ket access and reg­u­la­tory issues. Our esteemed panel of expert speak­ers will cover updates on biosim­i­lar and bio­bet­ter com­pe­ti­tion, legal affairs, and mar­ket strate­gies, and how these areas are affect­ing those work­ing in the indus­try right now. Global access dif­fi­cul­ties and the future pos­si­bil­i­ties for the biosim­i­lars prod­ucts will be dis­cussed by those who are the fore­front of the field.

    • Updates on biosim­i­lar and bio­bet­ter reg­u­la­tory guidelines
    • Stream­lin­ing approval and access for follow-​on biologics
    • Oppor­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges in bring­ing future biosim­i­lars to market
    • Emerg­ing mar­kets and the estab­lish­ment of biosim­i­lar products
    • Tech­nol­ogy trans­fer strate­gies for mar­ket access
    • Suc­cess­ful biosim­i­lar prod­uct case stud­ies from bench­top to market

    Day 2 – Biosim­i­lar and Bio­bet­ter Development

    Day Two will look at the devel­op­ment of both biosim­i­lar and bio­bet­ter prod­ucts at pre­clin­i­cal and clin­i­cal stages. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lead­ing inter­na­tional biosim­i­lar indus­try organ­i­sa­tions will pro­vide excit­ing case stud­ies detail­ing the plan­ning and exe­cu­tion of effec­tive biosim­i­lar clin­i­cal tri­als, as well as look­ing at the opti­mi­sa­tion of ana­lyt­i­cal test­ing in the pre­clin­i­cal phase to bet­ter advance the approval of products.

    • Biosim­i­lar and bio­bet­ter devel­op­ment and clin­i­cal case studies
    • Design­ing and con­duct­ing global clin­i­cal trials
    • Design­ing clin­i­cal mod­els and using data to effec­tively demon­strate biosimilarity
    • Oppor­tu­ni­ties in bio­bet­ters development
    • The lat­est on demon­strat­ing interchangeability
    • Approaches to har­mo­niz­ing immuno­genic­ity testing
    • Novel tech­niques and tech­nolo­gies for char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion, assay devel­op­ment and extrapolation

    Sub­mit a poster

    For atten­dees inter­ested in sub­mit­ting a poster, there are oppor­tu­ni­ties now avail­able. Your poster pre­sen­ta­tion will be located in the exhi­bi­tion room for two days along­side other posters from senior sci­en­tists work­ing in indus­try and academia.

    How to sub­mit your abstract

    We will require:

    • Poster title, Abstract (200 words or less)
    • Prin­ci­pal author, Organ­i­sa­tion, Mail­ing address
    • Email, Tele­phone, Fax
    • Addi­tional authors

    In order to secure your board space a fee of £250 plus VAT will be required. The poster should be pre­sented as A0 (841mm x 1189mm) por­trait size. To take advan­tage of this oppor­tu­nity you need to be reg­is­tered as a paid del­e­gate over the 2 days. We have lim­ited spaces avail­able, so please book soon!
