SHANGHAI, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Quality by Design (QbD) principles are familiar to pharmaceutical companies, and there are many trainings or conferences that focus on the introduction of this idea. However, how to practice these principles and how to make it from idea to implementation is still difficult for them.

Based on this background, the Quality by Design 2013 Conference organized by CPhI will be held on April 17 and 18 in Crowne Plaza Century Park Shanghai.

This event will be themed "From Idea to Practice, Gearing up for Pharma QbD through Practical Examples" and will focus on QbD implementation methods, including five in-depth case analyses from the perspective of generics, API and solid dosage forms R&D. QbD methodology also will be explored in this event, including DoE, PAT and RTR technology. Since QbD principles are more and more important in drug applications, according to updates of regulations, standards of FDA/SFDA and QbR evaluation models will be discussed in this event too, and attendees will benefit from the latest regulatory exploring.

Eighteen speakers will gather at this grand meeting. Luke Wang, senior director of product development from Huahai US, will talk about the experience of combining the generics application in Huahai.

Dr. Ke Hong, senior manager of PAT projects in Pfizer Global Supply, will focus on the case study of PAT-enabled QbD in drug manufacturing.

Dr. Ziqiang Gu, a former FDA officer, will talk about the FDA's expectation for QbD approaches in drug development.

The vice president from Novast Laboratories Ltd, general manager of Shanghai No.1 Biochemical & Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd, vice president from Syrex Laboratories Inc. and the former vice president from Teva will come together at this event for the deeper analysis of QbD.
