MIT Sociotechnical Systems Research Center invites you to its next spring seminar in the "Conversations on Sociotechnical Systems" series on Wed., March 5, from 4:15-5:30 p.m., in E38-615. Light refreshments will be served.
The delivery of biologic drugs to patients can be challenging, if not impossible, in many regions of the world. Patients who could benefit from treatments may live in remote regions, under-resourced areas, or face challenging circumstances, such as natural disasters that limit access to life-saving drugs.
This seminar will focus on a new approach for producing biologic drugs on site and on demand known as integrated and scalable cyto-technology (InSCyT). As a supplement to traditional processes, InSCyT can accelerate drug development and improve global access to customized drugs.
Paul Barone, associate director of the Biomanufacturing Research Program (BioMAN) and Consortium on Adventitious Agent Contamination in Biomanufacturing (CAACB) within MIT's Center for Biomedical Innovation, will deliver a talk, "Integrated and Scalable Cyto-Technology (InSCyT) Platform for Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing on Demand."
