Webinar: Overcoming Formulation Challenges for mRNA and High-Concentration Proteins

Date: Thursday, March 30, 2023
Time: 11:00AM ET

Abstract: In recent years, the industry witnessed new demand for protein delivery and the emergence of advanced modalities, such as mRNA. However, their development is met with technical challenges, including high-concentration formulations, stability and degradation. To address those concerns, optimizing formulation components, including high-throughput analytics methods, automation, statistical approach, and excipient design can help. In this webinar, experts will discuss how to improve the formulation development of high-concentration mAbs for subcutaneous delivery to reduce viscosity, and potentially reduce costs and timelines, and how to overcome current challenges met in formulating mRNA lipid nanoparticles (mRNA-LNP).

Key Learning Objectives:

  • The benefits of high-throughput analytics method, automation, and statistical approach in the development of high-concentration mAb formulation
  • A case study for an IgG1 mAb and proprietary, novel excipients to reduce the viscosity of high-concentration biologics
  • Challenges in formulating mRNA lipid nanoparticles (mRNA-LNP)
