    Pharma & Biotech Stability Testing

    Dates TBC, live online training


    Stability data form an important element of pharmaceutical regulatory submissions. This 3-day course will equip participants with the necessary knowledge to design and conduct stability studies that meet regulatory requirements. The course covers stability evaluations performed throughout the drug product life cycle, from product development to post-approval changes. Topics include fundamental chemical concepts, protocol design and the appropriateness of test methods for stability studies. The specific challenges posed by biological molecule stability are also covered. Each day includes a workshop session designed to reinforce key learning points.
