Mumbai: The Institute of Chemical Technology is organizing a 5-day workshop focused on the practical hands-on training on the characterization of biosimilars at its campus in Mumbai. The workshop is supported by Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC).
The organizers point out that the inspiration for this workshop is the National Biopharma Mission recently launched by the Skill India program of Government of India.
The team of scientific experts that would be attending the workshop come from leading industries and academic like Biocon, Syngene, USV, Lupin, IPCA, Agilent, Malvern and IISc, IMTECH and BARC. The trainees would be from organizations such as Syngene, Stelis Biopharma, Sun Pharma, SPARC, Richcore Life Sciences, HiMedia, Advy Chemicals, BIT Mesra, DY Patil are joining us for the training.
The learning of techniques for characterization of biosimilars/biologics is the central theme of the workshop. This intensive course is primarily designed for industry personnel and Academicians (young research students/faculty/scientists) wishing to pursue research in the areas of Biopharmaceuticals and Biologics/Biosimilars. Biologics/biosimilars have a huge demand in the areas of medical sciences and research to explore and validate the functional role of these complex molecules in multiple disease types.
The workshop on biosimilar characterization will be held from December 11th to 15th at the Institute of Chemical Technology.
