Geoffrey Ling, M.D., Ph.D. Biologically-derived Medicines on Demand for Battlefield Medicine
The current medical supply paradigm is non-responsive to far-forward emergency settings, emergent in-theater threats, and bio-preparedness stockpiling, often taking weeks to months to manufacture and airlift organic pharmaceuticals and protein therapeutics while not reaching the battlefield frontlines in time where it is needed most. A new manufacturing paradigm must be created to enable fast responses to specific threats without requiring specific threat preparedness, potentially eliminating the need to medically guess the enemy's intent, thus enhancing disaster responsiveness. DARPA's Biologically-derived Medicines on Demand (Bio-MOD) effort is focused on developing novel, flexible methodologies for genetic engineering and modification of microbial strains, mammalian cell lines and cell-free systems to synthesize multiple protein-based therapeutics in single-doses and short timeframes that meet purity, efficacy, and potency standards. Success in this effort will relieve the logistics burden and enable cost effective production of small quantity medications, particularly useful in the manufacture of orphan drugs.
Geoffrey Ling, M.D., Ph.D., Director, Biological Technologies Office, DARPA

New Paradigms in Bioproduction Culture Media Development
Biopharmaceutical production technologies, operations, and quality are undergoing a paradigm shift, resulting from the expiry of biologic patents, increased demand for personalized medicine, and increased global competition. This talk will review the impact of this paradigm shift on upstream production technology with a focus on optimization of cell culture media and feed formulations. In addition, the economics behind outsourcing and localized supply, for example, the relative value of powder versus bulk liquid supply and strategies based on improved shipping/packaging technologies, will be discussed. These advances in production technologies and shifts in operational strategies are driving a renewed focus on quality standards including analytic testing, formal risk analysis, and increased demands for purity, packaging, and cold chain.
William Whitford, Senior Manager - Hyclone Cell Culture, GE Healthcare Life Sciences

The Evolution of Laboratory Data Systems: Replacing Paper, Streamlining Process Execution, and Delivering Product and Process Insight
The laboratory has become an increasingly electronic environment. It's not just that the volume of data is greater than ever before, it's also being generated at ever-increasing speeds. As companies move towards a fully integrated lab environment there are benefits and pitfalls along the way. Successful projects start with a solid foundation, and keep a clear vision in mind.
Jarrod Medeirosc, Senior Consultant, IDBS
