Sunil Singh
Director, Regulink Ltd

Apr 14 2021

Excellent. Really enjoyed and learned a lot.

Anthony Barker

I felt like the three days flowed together really well, first giving a basic understanding of the biology side of these products, how they are made and then their uses.

Laura Jones
Regulatory CMC Manager, AstraZeneca

Sep 30 2020

Really interesting, and a great introduction to someone with little/no knowledge of biotechnology. Also great that it went from scientific processes through to industrial processes. Nicely laid out. Well worth the three days!

Jackie Knipe

Apr 10 2019

Well-balanced set of topics – nothing of importance seems to have been left out. The perfect level of detail for me as a biotech program leader/manager with a non-biotech scientific background.

Sergio Freitas
Development Program Lead, Tillotts Pharma AG

Sep 25 2019

A good general introduction that managed to make this very technical subject matter understandable to those with little scientific background, or as a refresher to those who may have graduated many years previously.

Matthew Jordan
Imerys Minerals

Sep 25 2019

The course was comprehensive and the speakers were both subject matter experts and very good presenters. I really enjoyed the three days.

Linnea Elrington
VP, Head of HR, Silence Therapeutics

Sep 25 2019

I thought it was a really interesting overview of biotechnology, from the specific scientific processes all the way through to the industry trends. I appreciated the discussion of advantages/ disadvantages and challenges of various methods and the industry as a whole, as I think this added a lot of context. This was beneficial for me when I was trying to apply what I had learned in the day to my specific company's context.

Sian Gilfillan
Marketing and Communications Associate, Albumedix

Apr 10 2019

I wanted to learn the basics of biologicals research and establishment/characterization of MCB. I also wanted to learn more on biologics manufacture and registration/filing. All of this was accomplished.

Excellent course – I learned a lot despite having worked as an in-house lawyer for a CMO for almost 5 years. The speakers were highly competent, engaged, knowledgable and able to answer all of my questions (and I had quite a few). Overall, a course I can highly recommend to other in-house lawyers.

Anna Damgaard Jensen
Head of Legal , AOP Orphan Pharma
