Call for Workshops

Help with an Upcoming AAPS Workshop!

AAPS is seeking leaders to help develop, and speakers to participate in, the following events:
    • Arden Conference 2019 
    • Manufacturing Gene and Cell-based Therapies
Tell is About a Workshop You want to Help Create! 

Even if you've never run a workshop before, AAPS can help you develop your idea, find committee members and speakers, and build an exciting event your colleagues want to attend. Whether you're thinking about a half-day meeting 50 scientists, or 3-day conference with more than a hundred, we want to hear about it! 


SUBMIT this short form to tell us about your program Idea!

AAPS will review your idea and have a staff person contact you to schedule a follow-up conversation. 

Questions? Contact Meredith VoelkelM@aaps.org.

Short Course: Surfactants and Biopharmaceuticals – A Love-Hate Relationship

This is a course designed to cover the topic of "Surfactants in Biopharmaceuticals" in a comprehensive manner for the practicing pharmaceutical scientist. It will provide a cross-disciplinary view of this topic starting from synthesis to use, analytics, control, safety, and regulatory aspects.


Workshop: Flight Simulator: Learning How to Develop Complex Generic Drug Products

This practical, active-participation workshop will help participants learn how to approach a demonstration of API sameness and BE for each type of CGDP and how to engage with the FDA about different types of questions during the development of a CGDP. Workshop participants will learn how to efficiently de-risk CGDP development, increase certainty about regulatory decision making, and enhance patient access to high-quality CGDPs.

Short Course: Development of Fixed Dose Combination Products; Considerations of GI Physiology and Overall Development Strategy

This short course will offer a comprehensive view of the most influential aspects of the GI physiology on the absorption of drugs and current techniques to help understand the fate of orally ingested complex drug products in the complex environment represented by the GI tract.

Short Course: A Harmonized Strategy for the Regulatory Submission of Immunogenicity Validation Data

The event will provide a detailed update of current expectations for immunogenicity validations and a preview of the ADAH recommendations. Presentations and discussions will prepare workshop attendees for future regulatory submissions.

Workshop: Science and Risk Based Stability Strategies: Applications of Predictive Tools

This workshop is designed to clarify the applicability of science and risk based stability approaches to optimize the stability protocol in order to develop an in depth knowledge of stability performance of pharmaceutical products (APIs and drug products).

Short Course: Immunogenicity Risk Assessment Update for Biologic Proteins and Peptides

This event will provide a timely update, describing updates to a range of methodologies to predict and measure Td immune responses to protein drugs. Benefits and limitations of current in-silico and in-vitro assay methods, in-vivo animal models including different humanized mouse formats in the field of Immunogenicity Risk Assessment will be discussed.

Workshop: Bioanalytical Method Validation: The Finalized Guidance

On May 18, 2018 the FDA issued the final version for the Guidance for Industry Bioanalytical Method Validation. The purpose of the workshop is highlight the new elements of the Guidance and provide a space for regulators to respond to audience questions using an open forum and panel discussion format.

Short Course: Immunogenicity Data Evaluations and Clinical Interpretation

This short course will provide an overview of regulatory expectations and experience with data reviews, in-depth statistical guidance for a broad range of topics, case-study illustrations of some common challenges, along with a demo of some simple data analysis templates/tools.

Short Course: Quantitative-System-Pharmacology: Why, How and When in Drug Discovery and Development

This short course will offer a holistic approach to understand the vital role of QSP by taking a step-wise approach to its application throughout the drug development process. Through the use of real world case studies and examples, this course provides a unique opportunity for attendees to better understand the rapidly growing field of QSP as well as appreciate how it can be applied immediately to their work.
